Description

The Academy Award® Winner for Best Documentary, Inside Job directed by Charles Ferguson, is the first film to expose the shocking truth behind the economic crisis of 2008. The global financial meltdown, at a cost of over $20 trillion, resulted in millions of people losing their homes and jobs. Through extensive research and interviews with major financial insiders, politicians and journalists, INSIDE JOB traces the rise of a rogue industry and unveils the corrosive relationships which have corrupted politics, regulation and academia.

    does a great job of making the material watchable and sticks to the facts. pleasant way to brush up on that crisis. the conclusions will appeal to many people, and they are close but... it becomes a bit of a polemic. has to make a virtue of the list of people who turned down the opportunity to be ambushed with questionable lines of inquiry I would like to hear what Gillian Tett thinks of the final work. what is missing? a lot of detail, this is not a distillation or slightly abbreviated, this is perhaps 0.05% of the story, the optimism is missing. there was the shared belief that debt had been solved, that we had engineered our way out of the demographic crisis. thats missing too, although the rise of china is presented, which is nice. so... mistakes? sure, errors? definitely, criminality? quite a lot, conflicts of interest? certainly, just not quite in the mixture presented here. your opinion could differ, so I hope you watch it and are encouaged to learn more.

    This film is well made and explains how the financial industry works and how it literally takes money off people. If the general public actually understood what is in this film, we might see change.
