How Can it All Be This Bad?? It’s an ‘Inside Job’.
A must see, ‘Inside Job’ provides a comprehensive analysis of the global financial crisis of 2008, which at a cost over $20 trillion, caused millions of people to lose their jobs and homes in the worst recession since the Great Depression, and nearly resulted in a global financial collapse. The film traces the rise of a rogue industry which has corrupted politics, regulation, and academia.

Explaining the Soros as a Philanthropist bit, a saw a commenter on a ZH article last week I think that showed either the director or producer of the movie was a bilderburg member. The idea being to place blame on the evil corporations and capatalists, I’m guessing in order to make way for a ‘more fair’ global regulation system..
You could do a custom search on the zerohedge domain for the last three weeks for “inside job” and probably pull it up.
Thanks for this post, Sean. It filled a lot of gaps and gelled things together. It goes a long way to showing the collusion between business and state and the and deceit of the public.
What’s headed our way is huge. I imagine larger than any of us can comprehend at this time.
And thanks for all your hard work. You’re doing a great service.
I disagree with the underlying premise of the movie that there wasn’t enough regulation. The problem with the finance industry is that there is too much government involvement that has lead to a system of crony capitalism and abuse at the expense of the average citizen. The movie sites the fact that the high tech industry does not have these types of problems, but then gives a lame response that the difference was innovation in high tech that prevented abuse. The truth is that it is the lack of regulation in high tech that precludes it from having the ability to entangle itself with the government and leaves its activities to be regulated by the free market. That is the fundamental lesson that needs to be learned from the crash of 2008, but unfortunately the viewers of this movie are being taught the opposite lesson. Consequently, we have learned nothing and we are destined to repeat the same mistakes again.
This should be taught in school as an object lesson on what NOT to do.
