Here is an opportunity to watch the Award-winning documentary, Inside Job. The producers aim to "expose the shocking truth behind the economic crisis of 2008. The global financial meltdown, at a cost of over $20 trillion, resulted in millions of people losing their homes and jobs. Through extensive research and interview with major financial insiders, politicians and journalists, INSIDE JOB traces a rogue industry and unveils the corrosive relationships which have corrupted politics, regulation and academia."

University academics might find it particularly pertinent to consider the allegations about conflicts of interest in academia, i.e. where academics are paid to produce "independent research" which supports the interests of certain financial institutions.
