May 19, 2009

The video is from FRONTLINE's reporting for Inside the Meltdown.

Brooksley Born: Back in '98 she warned that unregulated financial contracts, such as credit default swaps, could pose grave dangers to the economy -- and she got slammed by two top Clinton officials.

Inside the Meltdown is being rebroadcast this week on PBS. You also can watch it online now.
