We will watch a documentary entitled Inside Job (see description below). Was the problem lack of regulation, or lack of punishment? Where are your retirement funds invested? Who do you use for banking services? Has nothing changed?
This film is 120 minutes long, so we won't have much time for discussion.
'Inside Job' provides a comprehensive analysis of the global financial crisis of 2008, which at a cost over $20 trillion, 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.
