Just watched this documentary.*


Tbh I'm shocked. I was blown away.
Not that I didn't already know what was going on and what happened in 2008 but realizing how easily and how deeply investment banks control the US Government Financial policies it is really terrifying.
And it's all done in broad daylight.

It's also a good documentary cause it explains very clearly how the bubble was built and wtf are all of those financial products you heard on the news and that sent world economy in deep sh*t and a few lucky ones into unbelievable wealth.
Definitely "a crime story like no other in history".

What do you think? Have you watched it?

*I made a search so I hope I'm not posting a duplicated topic. Also, if this belongs to the movie section than please move it.
Although I think it belongs this section. wink.gif

You could absolutely say the financial crisis was an inside job. If repealing Glass Steagal, Garn St- Germain, Reagan era legislation allowing banks to give a mortgage to any dick in the ass on the side of the road, etc etc, is not an inside job, I don't know what is.

How long can the likes of Jamie Dimon stay out of jail? Well with the likes of Tim Geithner and Mary Schapiro in their corner I'd say jail time is out of the question. And let’s not forget my country’s role, Americans and Europeans can all thank us for having a prime minister whose main priority is keeping the UK the go to place to commit financial crime. Don't all thank us at once, your austerity measures are all the thanks we need.

I was more fascinated with the part in the film that revealed some of the culture and attitudes all the big cats have. I don't remember which bank it was, but a CEO if I remember his position correctly, had a private elevator built for his office for his own use only, so that he could encounter less people on his way to work.
