Yesterday, with an audience of about 12 other concerned citizens, I saw Inside Job, the talking-heads documentary about the financial crisis. To those following the news, there won't be any surprises here, though there are some delightful movements. John Campbell, chair of Harvard's Department of Economics, proves unable to form a sentence when asked about ethics. Glenn Hubbard, Dean of the Columbia Business School, displays shameless arrogance. I was so focused on not chuckling everytime I saw Eliot Spitzer on screen that I missed whatever he had to say. I believe I got the point of the graphic that charts diverging salaries over time for "Bankers" & "Everyone Else." I also enjoyed the beautiful opening footage of Iceland. The film ends a bit weakly, though, with only a vague call to action.
