Economics & Eccentrics

I loved the film, it was interesting to be able to understand in greater detail what happened to cause the pickle that a lot of economies around the world are in at the moment.

It was great to see the satire, poking fun at various aspects of capitalism and western society. Overall it was a much funnier film that I expected it to be, but still very sobering to know the impact on average people and to know that not a lot has changed.

Are banks still greedy? Yes. Corrupt? Largely. Is the system still broken? Without a doubt.
