Cato senior fellow Johan Norberg hosts a documentary, "Europe's Debt: America's Crisis?" being seen on PBS stations over the next few weeks. The Free to Choose Network, which produced the film, describes it this way:
Four investigative reports, shot on location in Greece, Brussels, California and Washington DC, highlight this in depth examination of Europe’s current debt crisis and its connection to the U.S. economy. Narrated by Swedish author Johan Norberg, and George Mason University professor, Don Boudreaux, the investigative reports ask: “Where did Europe go wrong” and “is the United States now repeating the same mistakes?”
Participants include Cato friends Jacob Mchangama and Tanja Stumberger, as well as such key players as former comptroller general David Walker, former European Commissioner Frits Bolkestein, and Ann Johnson, mayor of Stockton, California.
"Europe's Debt: America's Crisis?" airs on Washington's channel 32 Tuesday night at 10. For other broadcasts, from Boston to San Francisco, check the listings here.
