Unraveling what happened that summer of 1998, 'The Crash' examines the underlying dynamics of a global economy that has created this new era of risk and instability. And it draws on the expertise of William Greider, George Soros, Jeffrey Sachs, and other leading financial analysts and policy makers who debate whether--or when--the crash of 1998 will be repeated. This site, a companion to  a special 'Frontline' television programme, uses text reports, interviews and a video segment.
