Khan Academy Video Course: Paulson Bailout
14 Installments—Entirely free
After the financial crisis of 2008, the U.S. government, led by Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson, stepped in and offered bailouts to troubled banks and other entities it deemed "too big to fail." This controversial move dramatically changed the relationship between the public and private sector—and may have saved the country from falling into another depression. This Khan Academy video course explains what the various aspects of the bailout actually mean and how we are moving forward from this dramatic moment in our economic history.
