PBS's Bill Moyes Talks to William K. Black about Banks

William K. Black wrote a book some time ago entitled, "The Best Way To Rob A Bank is to Own One". As a senior regulator of banks and he pursued fraud and corruption in the 80s. He is now Associate Professor of Economics and Law at the University of Missouri.  He talks to Bill Moyes about the Savings and Loans crisis from the 1980s and he also offers  solutions to the current problems. Black's worryingly argues that the people who got us into this mess are the same ones who are being given trillions of dollars to get us out of it. The mess will remain unless people with probity and integrity are appointed key financial positions. And even then it will take years.
