The Men Who Crashed The World

In a fantastic new series called Meltdown, Al Jazeera looks at the people and machinations around the globe that were behind the financial collapse of 2008, beginning with the assertion that for a brief period, Henry Paulson “was the de facto president of the United States.”

    There’s a book called “The Bankers Who Sold the World” about some bankers who during the financial crisis sell the world cheap to some alien bankers!

      According to youtube, the video was “Uploaded by AlJazeeraEnglish on Sep 21, 2011″. There are 3 more episodes covering the financial collapse planned.So, I’d guess production took place within the last year.
