The Spanish newspaper El Pais offered today the opportunity to buy Inside Job [DVD](2011). I’ve just seen it and, in my opinion, it should be included in all financial curriculum. Certainly it must be stressed that the ultimate goal of the Financial Services Industry is to serve the public interest. The question still in the air: Have we learned anything from past mistakes? Unfortunately it does not seem so.
Inside Job is a 2010 documentary film about the late-2000s financial crisis directed by Charles H. Ferguson. The film is described by Ferguson as being about “the systemic corruption of the United States by the financial services industry and the consequences of that systemic corruption.” In five parts, the film explores how changes in the policy environment and banking practices helped create the financial crisis. Inside Job was well received by film critics who praised its pacing, research, and exposition of complex material. The film was screened at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival in May and won the 2010 Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. (From Wikipedia)
