Watch part two

Titans tumble, markets see-saw and governments put up massive bailouts but where did the financial crisis come from and how will the next US president deal with the country's ticking debt bomb?

With a chorus of different voices - from Wall Street insiders to those who could not even get in the door of the New York Stock Exchange - Inside USA looks at the roots of the crisis, asks whether it could have been avoided and considers how it will shape the next US government.

On the eve of the US presidential election, Avi Lewis reports from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange.
