A comprehensive analysis of the global financial crisis of 2008, which at a cost over $20 trillion, caused millions of people to lose their jobs and homes in the worst recession since the Great Depression, and nearly resulted in a global financial collapse.

Praised by some for it's expose and criticized by others for it's propaganda. It was made on location in the United States, Iceland, England, France, Singapore, and China.
