I saw this over the weekend, and thought it was pretty good.

Princeton economists review recent events on Wall Street and assess the implications for the economy and public policy.

At the surface it looks pretty good.

But when you think a bit longer about it, if this is the best Princeton has to offer then I fear for the state of the rest of the US academics...

The real problem that needs solving is the crazy debt grow in the financial sectors and a lot of other sectors.
In the financial sector in the first year of this credit crisis is growing at an annual rate of over 10% and the total debt of the financial sector is something like 120% of the GDP.

When you take into account that the US government statistics are rather shaky in measuring the GDP the picture gets even far more bleak.

There is a lot more that is not completely good in their analysis so on the surface it looks good but the vid has no real depth.
