Inside Job (2010)


STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 0
ACTOR – n/a
MUSIC – 1
CULT – 1

Verdict – 3/4

 

Pros –
1) Exposing the fact that Top Financial Services CEOs are nothing but crime bosses without the 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 builds bridges. A financial engineer builds dreams. And, you know, when those dreams turn out to be nightmares, other people pay for it.
