Overview

The global financial collapse of 2008 was the biggest economic disaster in nearly a century. In a matter of months, the middle class disappeared, and the poor became homeless. This was not a matter of bad luck or poor judgement by the financial sector. It was the self-enriching deregulation plan of Wall Street execs, American politicians, greedy lawyers, and other deceitful financial bosses who made billions of dollars at the two trillion dollar expense of those they'd promised to serve: us.

Inside Job is directed by Charles Ferguson and narrated by actor Matt Damon. Ferguson is most famous for his political documentaries, such as No End in Sight, exploring the American occupation of Iraq.
