As millions of American workers saw their 401k became 201k since last year, this 401k thing suddenly becomes a hot topic. CBS 60 minutes did an excellent report on this topic.
I am a big fan of CBS 60 minutes. This weekend it explains the Credit Default Swap (CDO) market, and how it backfired and brought down the Bear, Lehman, and AIG. One nice thing about this CBS video (link here), is one does not need formal finance education to understand it. The video lasts 12 min.
