The Secret History of Credit Cards

As always, I’m uber-impressed with PBS’s news and documentary branch and with their online efforts. The number of times a week I tell people “Hey, I saw something about that on [insert NOW, Bill Moyers, or Frontline here)” is astounding. PBS is one of the few, and perhaps the only, reliable source of in-depth, long-format journalism on television.
Take the time to watch Frontline’s “The Secret History of Credit Cards.” You might find, as I did, that you learn something about how this industry developed into the behemoth it is today. I also learned a lot about how people get mired in credit card debt and the techniques used to keep them there.
