Charles Ferguson’s film – Inside Job – won the Academy Award for Best Documentary in 2011. It narrates the conflicts of interest between the finance industry, politicians, academics and regulators, which eventually led to the trillion-dollar collapse of 2008. Narrated by Matt Damon. From: http://www.theotherschoolofeconomics.org/?p=2499 - which screens the film on-line.
It is fascinating viewing, but deeply disturbing as many of the key personalities are still in play in various companies and governments and regulatory bodies today.
