I watched “Inside Job” last night.
The movie explains why and how the house bubble was created, the economic crisis and who profited from it. As good as the documentary is, take a pill before watching it if you have high blood pressure problems. Those that caused all this misery did not only not go to jail, get filthy rich, and are still in the government. They also laugh in your face.
Most of us already have a good idea of how it happened, but there’s still good information in this well put together documentary. The Matt Damon is the narrator, and because of this I thought it would have a “Blame Bush and the Republicans” attitude and completely overlook the current’s administration blame. I was pleasantly surprised to see they did not hesitate to show how Obama’s promises of stopping and punishing the Wall Street mercenaries was left only at empty words, and how those same guys that caused the crisis during the Bush administration also found an nice profitable home in Obama’s one as well, doing the exact same thing.
I highly recommend this movie, not only for adults but the entire family, so as to understand what happened, where USA is heading and what you’ll need to be preparing for.
