PBS NewsHour‘s Ray Suarez produced an informative and compelling report for Friday evening’s broadcast on how the financial mess came to be a financial mess. In it, Elizabeth Warren, the chair of the Congressional Oversight Panel said three simple regulations would’ve prevented it.

Her panel blamed “complacent policymakers for missing warning signs of a looming financial crisis and called for tighter regulations to prevent it happening again.”
