This documentary, a special collaboration between This American Life and NPR News, deconstructs the current housing crisis.

It explains what the crisis has to do with the turmoil on Wall Street, why banks make half-million dollar loans to people without jobs, and why everyone is talking about the 1930s.

The Giant Pool of Money won a Best Documentary: Honorable Mention Award, as well as the Director's Choice Award, in the 2008 Third Coast / Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Competition.
