If you wonder what really led to the economic crash of 2008 then I urge you go and see Inside Job, the film directed by Charles Ferguson.
It starts with a chilling re-run of the events in the decade leading up to the crisis and then exposes the recklessness, corruption and utter denial of those who let it happen, and even profited from it.
“Inside Job was well received by film critics who praised its pacing, research and explanation of complex material.”
It’s straight-talking, it’s fact and it’s scarier than fiction.
You couldn’t make it up.
