“Interpreting Capitalism” Film Series: INSIDE JOB

Date: Thu. April 3rd, 2014, 1:00 pm-1:00 pm

414_none_062010 Oscar Winner for Best Documentary, “Inside Job” provides a comprehensive analysis of the global financial crisis of 2008, which at a cost over $20 trillion, caused millions of people to lose their jobs and homes in the worst recession since the Great Depression, and nearly resulted in a global financial collapse. Through exhaustive research and extensive interviews with key financial insiders, politicians, journalists, and academics, the film traces the rise of a rogue industry that has corrupted politics, regulation, and academia. Introduced by Professor Robert Strassfeld, CWRU Law School faculty.
