Financial Journalist Gretchen Morgenson

Season 2009 Episode 3 | 28m 48s

Marcia Franklin and Gretchen Morgenson talk about what Morgenson sees as the underpinning of the country's financial crisis - the federal government's push to increase home ownership. The two also discuss various taxpayer-funded bailouts of companies such as AIG, and whether Morgenson sees any light at the end of the tunnel for the slumping economy.
