A 10 minute video by the Wall Street Journal economic staff about the 2008 banking crisis and bailout, and the resulting situation in banks in terms of lending. Appropriate for all college economics courses, but very specifically focuses on banking, the bailout, lending, and the Federal Reserve's involvement. A good overveiw of what happened.
