Inside Job (2010)

ACTOR – n/a
CULT – 1

Verdict – 3/4

Pros –

1) Exposing the fact that Top Financial Services CEOs are nothing but crime bosses without gun.
2) “It’s a Wallstreet Govt.”
3) Dangerous incentives lead to the crisis : Incentive structures generated huge cash bonuses based on short-term profits, but imposed no penalties for later losses.These incentives encouraged bankers to take risks that might eventually destroy their own firms, or even the entire financial system.

Cons –

1) Complicated for someone with less knowledge of market/banking and jargons. A second viewing is required.
2) Michael Moore ruined it for everyone.

Quote –

Andrew Sheng: Why should a financial engineer be paid four times to 100 times more than a real engineer? A real engineer build bridges. A financial engineer build dreams. And, you know, when those dreams turn out to be nightmares, other people pay for it
