        Prosecute Wall Street for the 2008 Financial Crisis?

        This video adapted from FRONTLINE considers the issues involved in deciding whether or not to pursue criminal charges against Wall Street executives in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis. While the public demanded and Wall Street feared such charges, the difficulties of criminal prosecution led the US Justice Department to rely instead on civil penalties and more rigorous future regulation of the banking industry. This resource is part of the FRONTLINE collection.
