The second episode of Max Keiser’s new show on Russia Today: “‘Keiser Report’ is a no holds barred look at the shocking scandals behind the global financial headlines. From the collusion between Wall Street and Capitol Hill to the latest banking crime wave, from bogus government economic statistics to rigged stock markets, nothing escapes the eye of Max Keiser, a former stockbroker, inventor of the virtual specialist technology and co-founder of the Hollywood Stock Exchange. With the help of Keiser’s co-host, Stacy Herbert, and guests from around the world, ‘Keiser Report’ tells you what is really going on in the global economy.” – 26 Nov 09 (26:19):
