This is a 2010 documentary about the great financial meltdown.
The film tells the story of the credit bubble that caused the financial crash through interviews with some of the world's leading economists as well as Wall Street insiders and victims.
More topical than ever, it also presents an original and compelling account of the toxic combination of forces that nearly destroyed the world economy, demonstrating how excessive income inequality leads to economic instability.
It is an inspirational and profoundly thought-provoking documentary.

Here's another excellent hindsight-filled Economic Disaster Film. But this one gives historic perspective, and fresh insight into how declining (real) wages, and widening income difference, was a driving modality behind the latest bubble-to-burst nightmare. Worth seeing.
