If you have an interest in economics and how we got where we are you might want to rent Inside Job. It’s at Red Box (the movie vending machines in grocery stores) for $1.06 rental fee.
I found it to be an accurate and engaging chronology of events that caused our economic melt down. The movie focuses on the self-serving actions of individuals, businesses and government officials and how their collective greed benefited a few at the expense of many.
I really liked this movie and you might too. I highly recommend “Inside Job.”
