Was the 2008 economic crisis an “Inside Job”?by Carolyn Classen on Nov. 24, 2010, under Arts, Life, Politics
From Academy Award-nominated filmmaker, Charles Ferguson (No End In Sight), comes INSIDE JOB, the first film to expose the shocking truth behind the economic crisis of 2008. The global financial meltdown, at a cost of over $20 trillion, resulted in millions of people losing their homes and jobs. Through extensive research and interviews with major financial insiders, politicians and journalists, INSIDE JOB traces the rise of a rogue industry and unveils the corrosive relationships which have corrupted politics, regulation and academia.
Narrated by Academy Award-winner Matt Damon, INSIDE JOB was made on location in the United States, Iceland, England, France, Singapore, and China.
