The Big Short

I enjoyed this movie about the 2008 economic crisis. It attempted to explain the financial terms with fourth wall breaking scenes. And it used popular actors to play characters that recognized the fraudulent basis for the housing bubble. None sought to correct the problem. They made a whole bunch of money off it. Made my stomach turn, but the film Dishonesty on the work of behavioural economist Dan Ariely pointed out conditions that foster dishonest behaviour. So maybe if I had a similar job, I would do similar things. So much for unfettered capitalism. Apparently, Canada’s banks have more regulation.
