Alternate title:The crime of our time
Summary:Exposing the forces responsible for the loss of trillions of dollars, millions of jobs, massive foreclosures, and the disappearance of retirement funds, the documentary investigates the unregulated fraud and theft that led to the market's collapse in fall 2008. Explores the epidemic of subprime mortgages, predatory lending, insurance scams, and high-risk hedge funds that caused the collapse of the housing market and a full-scale economic meltdown.
