Andrew Ross Sorkin, New York Times columnist and the founder and editor at large of DealBook, talks to Senator Elizabeth Warren about the 2008 financial collapse, which rocked the markets, unraveled the housing market and upended the lives of millions of Americans.
The duo, who are two of the country’s leading experts on the collapse, came together for a rare and candid conversation on the 10-year anniversary marking the crisis. What safeguards have been put in place to prevent a repeat of the disaster, and which ones have already unraveled? What role does the current political climate in a far more global economy play in that dynamic?
Watch Senator Warren, who created the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau at the behest of President Obama after that crisis, talk to Sorkin, author of “Too Big to Fail: How Wall Street and Washington Fought to Save the Financial System — and Themselves” that chronicled it all.
