Watch Inside Job – The Movie | zero hedge.

I endorse this as well. For those who follow alternative financial blogs, you will already know well the broad story line. But, seeing the images and hearing the voices has a value far greater than a couple hours and the price of a ticket. These are the things that steel your resolve.



  1. I am really looking forward to seeing this – I only hope it comes to a screen near me – which is to say, in this conservative waste land. Nearly through “Chasing Goldman Sachs”, and I highly recommend it, too. Most of those here are familiar with much/most of it, but there is a slightly different tone here than I’ve read in other books on the melt-down. The author is a writer for Barrons, but she’s by no means a rubber-stamp for the Wall St. community.

    I heard Steven Baccus, R-Ala. this morning saying that proprietary trading had nothing to do with the crash- it was the bursting of the housing bubble that caused it. What crap! He just proved he either is totally ignorant of the underlying landscape or he’s being deliberately dishonest. If this is the opening salvo in repealing or scaling back the meager financial reform that was passed, get ready for a lot of tsk-tsking from the Right on how terrible the burdens are that are now crushing Wall St.

  2. It was priceless!!!! Just observing the body language of what people look like when their souls know they are lying and rationalizing their perverted behaviours was a treat to the eye!!!!

    I loved it! And ZH said that they were thinking of Fred Mishkin as a possible replacement for Larry Summers. If there’s anyone who came out looking like a total jerk, that’ll be him. Maybe that’s why Obama and his cronies will hire him.
    Oh btw there were only 7 people in the theater, including me!!!!!

    Hahaha!! And they think there might be a revolution in America ….. Nope the dumbed down, addicted to personal image, version of America has ways to go.

    • Thanks for the confirmation, Vocalbanker. In an aside, I heard something on the news this a.m. that really bothers me re: the G-20 meetings. It was stated that the money the Fed is pouring into the “economy” is actually being directed, via “investors” into commodities and other speculation in places like Thailand, causing inflation there. So, my question, I guess is – where are the whistle-blowers on this? Why is it not being pointed out that this funnel of money is NOT flowing to create jobs on Main St., but is – surprise! surprise! – funding a new bubble. While I HAVE heard people like Krugman warn of a commodities bubble, he hasn’t made the direct connection for the man on the street as to how the money Bernanke is creating supposedly to help US is, in fact, going directly to the bottom lines of the Goldman, JPMC, etc. (again).
      Yeah, the revolution was canceled on account of lack of interest……..
