New documentary offers insights on current economic challenges

This interview originally aired on In the Moment on SDPB Radio.

Both nationally and internationally, the current economic outlook is less than rosy. With swirling anxieties brought on by skyrocketing inflation and a struggling banking industry, one has to wonder, how did we get here?

James Jacoby is the director of "Age of Easy Money." The FRONTILNE documentary goes back to the 2008 financial crisis and looks at how the Federal Reserve's actions then are contributing to economic strife now.

The documentary premieres on Tuesday, March 14 on SDPB TV. Learn more.
