This documentary may, probably WILL, enlighten you.
On the 30th March I wrote about the film Inside Job. Then a few days ago James Kwak of Baseline Scenario, a blog that I have been reading for some time now, also wrote a piece about the film, opening his Post thus,
I finally saw Inside Job at a friend’s house tonight. I don’t have anything original to say about it. I thought it was a very, very good movie. There were lots of little things that weren’t quite right (many of which were probably conscious decisions to simplify details for the sake of comprehension), but I don’t think any of them were substantively misleading.
As always with Baseline Scenario, the comments are as interesting and educational as the article, and that was just as valid in this case. One of the comments was from Carla who wrote,
I think Inside Job is no longer available to view for free now that the DVD is for sale at Amazon (well worth the purchase, BTW).
But at the same site I found “The Money Fix,” which you can watch for free: http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/money-fix/
Also, there’s another site with some good free docs:http://www.freedocumentaries.org.
Anyway, we watched the film on Tuesday evening and, boy oh boy, was it an eye-opener.
I promise you, the full film is so well worth watching. (And do read to the end of this Post!)
The film also makes reference to the website The Money Fix which has a great number of resources for those that wish to explore further this fascinating subject. Thanks Carla.
