Watch Charles Ferguson's "Inside Job"

Charles Ferguson is an American hero. He produced, wrote, and directed this masterpiece about the fraud and corruption that led to the crisis. Upon winning the Academy Award for Best Documentary in 2011, he began his acceptance speech by stating, "Forgive me, I must start by pointing out that three years after our horrific financial crisis caused by financial fraud, not a single financial executive has gone to jail, and that's wrong."

Ferguson recently published his book, Predator Nation, and has continued his crusade to expose fraud, criminality, and corruption, in the private sector, in government, and in academia.

If you have not seen this movie, you must do so. Then share it. Every American should be aware of what is transpiring at the highest levels of our establishment. Of course, this goes beyond America's borders; everyone should be aware of the injustice, criminality, and corruption that sways policy and creates a needlessly precarious financial world for us all.

Consider purchasing this movie, not only to support Charles Ferguson and his crew for their work, but fot the extras included - including deleted scenes and excellent interviews that did not make it into the movie. In particular, I recommend watching the interviews with Lee Hsien Loong, the Prime Minister of Singapore.

This is a DVD/Blu-ray that should be owned.
