Inside Job - 2010
Directed By: Charles Ferguson
Written By: Charles Ferguson / Chad Beck
Narrated By: Matt Damon
Tagline: The global economic crisis of 2008 cost tens of millions of people their savings, their jobs, and their homes. This is how it happened
This documentary movie provides a comprehensive analysis of the global financial crisis of 2008, caused millions of people to lose their jobs and homes in the worst recession since the Great Depression, and nearly resulted in a global financial collapse.
Through exhaustive research and extensive interviews with key financial insiders, politicians, journalists, and academics, the film traces the rise of a rogue industry which has corrupted politics, regulation, and academia. It was made on location in the United States, Iceland, England, France, Singapore, and China.(from IMDB)
I got intrigued... about this movie due to the outburst of the Occupy Wall Street which is currently spreading across the globe. However, is getting little or no media attention at all (because apparently, the mainstream media is controlled by the 1%).
Anyway, for the ordinary person who would watch this movie who is not familiar with global economic jargon or jibberish like moi... just read between the lines... and carefully watch the emotions of Wall Street players which I'm sure you would come to the conclusion that they have been eaten by the system... programmed to be heartless... its a bit sad... but well, there's hope.
How? By becoming aware and come up with a creative solution that will sustain the society. One that is win, win...
