In 2008, Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson found himself confronting one of the worst financial meltdowns in our nation's history. The former Goldman Sachs CEO was widely praised for his handling of the meltdown -- and the new documentary "Hank: Five Years From the Brink" tells the story of the economic collapse from his perspective. We'll talk to Paulson about the film and about criticism of his decision to support a Wall Street bailout.

Host: Michael Krasny

Guests:

  • Henry Paulson, chairman of the Paulson Institute and former U.S. secretary of the treasury, 2006-2009
