How the 2008 financial collapse led to our current political populist moment

Hosted by

It’s been 10 years since the biggest bankruptcy in history. Lehman Brothers -- then the nation’s fourth largest investment bank -- failed and touched off the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. Columnist Andrew Ross Sorkin argues that the collapse was the moment that split the country and lead to the election of Donald Trump. His documentary “Crisis on Wall Street” airs Wednesday on CNBC at 10 pm PST.
