WSJ.com Launches ‘The End of Wall Street: An Oral History’

Wall Street is over! Well maybe not, but that’s certainly been the theme of many business articles that have been penned since the financial collapse of last fall (sort of like how everyone thought “history” had ended at the end of the last century). Anyway, continuing the strong newspaper trend towards online video &#151 we’ve speculated before that it’s only a matter of time before TV and newspapers truly mesh — WSJ.com has launched a three-part oral history titled ‘The End of Wall Street’ in which Journal reporters explain “how the housing bubble inflated and burst, the rippling effects across the economy and look at what’s ahead for the global economy.” WSJ.com tells us this is the first longer form series the site has done, and unlike, say, the videos NYT.com does (i.e. David Carr‘s genius and hysterical Carpetbagger) it’s embeddable! Parts two and three after the jump.
