Coping with our Economic Crisis

By Diane Louise

Comments about PBS FRONTLINE: Close to Home DVD:

Compelling stories of individuals who are coping with the fact that they were blindsided by the sudden onset of the recession. Beautifully and compassionately told, it puts a face on each situation from the white collar professional out of a job in his 50's to the young hopeful business owner reaching for a dream. Highly recommended

I've watched this 5 times

I saw this on TV then on the web site. Now I'm going to buy it. I have been fortunate in being employed through the worst of the recession. But anytime I feel like my work is a chore, I'm going to watch this program. The people are survivors! I just thank God that my fate is not similar.

"ABSOLUTELY DEAD ON", pure reality!!!

Comments about PBS FRONTLINE: Close to Home DVD:

I just completed watching this mirror of reality! I'm a stone's throw from 62, everything portrayed was so 'right on' and 'right now'! I spent '25' years working in computer support for a strong, AMERICAN manufacturing facility, located in America... I can identify so well with most of these great, hard working Americans who have aspired to place AMERICA number '1' in production, pride, and prosperity...only to see it all disappear right before our very eyes!!! To me, the biggest, single reason for the current struggle we're all facing, is the, short-sighted, greed based, placement of 'MILLIONS' of jobs outside the U.S. JOBS, steady, permanent, reasonable paying jobs, for the masses are the 'LIFEBLOOD' of any free society. MANUFACTURING WAS, AND IS, THE KEY to sustaining America's future. Now that we've thrown it all away, America and our standard of living, is crumbling and unraveling at an alarming pace. You can stimulate the economy temporarily, with temporary jobs and money, but PERMANENT JOBS have to come back!!!!!!! EXCELLENT DOCUMENTARY!!! Should be required viewing for President Obama, every congressman and senator,(A.S.A.P.) in mass, during their normal work sessions.
