Leave it to "This American Life" to get to the heart of the problem in
a way average people can understand.  It's not only great radio,
they're my heroes.  Be sure to listen to both links.  It's a real
lesson in hubris (like we needed another one).

The second podcast, "Another Frightening Show About the Economy",
is the most eyeopening, on credit default swaps -- something, btw,
most analyses I've seen never even touch on.  This is scarier than the
worst slasher movie ever.  Talk about losing sleep over the endless
greed and stupidity of people...
