I just learned of, and last night watched the documentary entitled Inside Job, produced by Charles Ferguson and narrated by Matt Damon. It is a scorching, frightening narrative--very well documented--which exposes and explains the enormous power that the present banking industry has over the government, and our economy; how they engineered the recent financial disaster and are in a position to do it again.
Having read a number of books about the present calamity, I can assure everyone that this is "the God's truth." With the recent banking bailout, the remaining banks are both larger and more dangerous; less regulated and more powerful. They are playing with our money and it must be stopped, though I have no idea how it is to be accomplished.
It is available thru NefFlix, and can be purchased on line thru Amazon, amongst others.
Rent it or buy it, but see it ASAP. Contact your Senators and Congressmen, and insist that they figure out what to do. They are ruining the economy of the world as we knew it only 30 years ago. This documentary carefully and fully explains how and why.
