Inside Job

INSIDE JOB is a 2010 movie narrated by Matt Damon and Produced and Directed by Charles Ferguson. EVERY AMERICAN who cares about this country and their freedom should watch this movie. I just saw this at a theater in New York while we are up here rehearsing for the next ABB run. If you are not infuriated after watching this movie then you should pick out a casket and occupy it. Apathy is the enemy of freedom. Here's how it describes itself.

"A comprehensive analysis of the 2008 global financial crisis, 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 caused global financial collapse. It traces the rise of a rogue industry which has corrupted politics, regulation, and academia."

Every administration from Reagan, Bush Sr., Clinton, Bush Jr. and Obama all share the blame in what has happened and what's about to happen.

Here's some reviews.

Boston Globe, Wesley Morris
"The movie succeeds at upsetting you not by losing its cool, the way so many similar films do, but by slow-cooking its argument." A

Chicago Sun-Times, Roger Ebert
" angry, well-argued documentary about how the American financial industry set out deliberately to defraud the ordinary American investor." A, Chris Cabin
"Like No End in Sight, the key to Inside Job's power is how clearly Ferguson maps out each step towards disaster." B

New York Times, A. O. Scott
"...meticulous and infuriating," A-

  1. I CANNOT wait to see this movie. I would argue that every administration at least back to Woodrow Wilson deserves some of the blame for our financial situation. If we had never created the beast that is the Federal Reserve, I doubt we would be in this position.

    Gird your loins, it's about to get rough.
