    Airdate: Friday, April 24, 2009, at 9:00 p.m. EDT on PBS (check local listings).

    As the demand grows for a new Pecora commission, the 1930's investigation into the causes and effects of the Great Depression, Bill Moyers speaks with economist Simon Johnson and Ferdinand Pecora biographer and legal scholar Michael Perino. Johnson is a former chief economist of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and a professor at MIT Sloan School of Management, and Perino is a professor of law at St. John's University and has been an adviser to the Securities and Exchange Commission. Also on the program, the Journal profiles Steve Meacham, a Massachusetts community organizer fighting to keep working people in their homes.
