On May 17, the Cato Institute will host a premiere of a new documentary on the financial crisis–Overdose. The trailer can be seen here.

The documentary is based upon Swedish writer Johan Norberg’s book Financial Fiasco. Cato describes Overdose as follows:

“This 46-minute documentary is a fast-paced look at how we got into the financial crisis and how our way of dealing with it is setting the stage for the next crisis. Produced for European television but also headed for American TV, the film features interviews with Vernon Smith, Peter Schiff, Robert Van Order, Megan McArdle, and former comptroller general David Walker. It is co-written and narrated by Cato senior fellow Johan Norberg, author of In Defense of Global Capitalism and Financial Fiasco: How America’s Infatuation with Home Ownership and Easy Money Created the Economic Crisis. Norberg will introduce the film and take questions.”
