John Bird and John Fortune are two British comedians noted for their droll conversations where they discuss the issues of the day, sometimes in the format of one of them interviewing the other who has taken on the persona of a politician, banker, general, or other person in the news.
Here they are back in 2008 discussing the financial crisis and its impact in the UK but almost everything applies to the US. They give one of the best explanations for what caused the crisis and who were the real winners and losers. What they describe is exactly what JP Morgan Chase did and for which they agreed to a fine this week of $13 billion. But more than half of that will be tax deductible and the bank has not admitted to breaking any laws.
