I watched a fascinating movie this week. It won the Academy Award for Best Documentary--Inside Job.
It's an easy to understand, yet still hard to imagine, look at the economic meltdown of 2008. It's frustrating, yet not surprising, to see how many people with lots of money profit from the loss of regular people and poor people. It gives new meaning to the term predatory lending, when financial institutions and the people who run them expect to profit from the complete loss of others.
I felt it was well worth the time investment, especially if you're a person who likes documentaries. It's my media pick of the week.
