  1. They just fucked us again in 2020 so now they can do another documentary in 2030 about patting themselves on the back a second time while saying "unfortunately poor people just don't understand economics".

  2. Suspiciously one-sided. In the UK we nationalised troubled banks until they were back on their feet and then sold them back to the market. In the USA you bought 'troubled assets' that the banks never should have had. I.e. you wrote a blank cheque to get toxic investments off their books. Yet in this documentary the UK is portrayed as the ones who screwed this up. (BTW the comments have been turned off on the actual documentary on youtube. Hmmm) Wankspanners.

  3. Watch the documentary on youtube then complain about if these people are crooks. The crooks are Richard fuld ( and wall street bankers who got millions in bonuses ) and many mortgage firms but most importantly the people were participating too, the citizens were taking mortgage.
    If you see the documentary you'll realise that what these guys did is a miracle! God bless them.

    Idk if Jamie dimon is a crook too cause he tried hard to buy troubled assets but couldn't.

    The best line is "Markets go to the extreme" and this is just one example of that.
    Watch the documentary and comment back here and tell me whats wrong.

  4. I never knew Vice was in the business of shilling for the criminals responsible for the 2008 meltdown. How can anyone believe anything that Vice News says after something like this?

  5. Does anybody remember how gas prices totally plummeted like from $4.50 to around $1 by the end of the year? In 2008, I saw both the highest and the lowest gas prices in my life.

  6. This is the biggest piece of bullshit iv ever seen you got the people that caused and huge hands in the crash sitting on this trying to justify what they did as if it was for the hood of the people when we all know that the bank run government bailed itself out with our money the main guy talking the treasurer was the head guy at Goldman Sachs you should toss this in the trash

  7. I see Americans need basic education about how Economy works. They say this Documentary is disgusting but don't say why. They just say "Bankers Bad". it's Bankers who let you have Cars, Houses, and even Jobs through mortgage, Installment transactions, Business loans.

  8. I use to greet Hank Every Sunday Morning and pull his Clubs from the Bag Room and set him up on a cart at the Golf ⛳️ Course back in 1990-1992 as a young High School kid. Never did I think he would have been such a dynamic force in saving our country. Nice guy and a good tipper.

  9. I watched this. At the end they say that they earned a 50 billion dollar profit for the American people. Funny I never received a check. They did bail out Wall Street and left homeowners out to dry. People should have gone to jail but we’re protected by the Obama administration. The one thing they don’t cover in the doc is that the guys who bailed out Wall Street where the same people that created the market that nearly collapsed our economy and robed Millions of their future. I’ve graduated in 2007. Before I was 35 I had 2 finical crisis in my life that wiped me out. When are is Main Street going to get its bailout.

  10. maybe you guys missed a few tiny lil pieces and facts in this history rewriting propaganda piece, dont you think?
    not one word of the $16 trillion loans to these fine gentlemans firms in this 'documentary'?
    you sure just forgot to mention 2,5 trillion $ to citi
    2t$ to morgan stanley
    2t$ to merrill lynch
    1,3t$ to b of a

    you guys cant be serious

  11. Yeah, what kind of propagandist bullshit is this? This is awful. Half of these people should be in prison and they just want to protect their legacy. The HBO docudrama about this,Too Big To Fail, is more nuanced and to have Aaron Ross Sorkin, (notice his title is writer not journalis), as a talking head and schmoozing with these people, when he should be taking them to task, is sickening. He was better in 2008. Watch "Inside Job," Margin Call or Too Big to Fail

  12. This film is just bad. Blaming it on Barclays for not buying crap. Bail outs because “capital” will run away. I mean. Wtf, it’s the most obvious propaganda movie ever…

  13. Well crafted documentary about all the bad actors of the 2008 Financial Meltdown® in top form. We've got Hank Paulson talking about having to save the economy for the American people, we've got John Mack saying discipline was kinda lacking. (I would have laughed if I wasn't throwing up in my mouth—a lesson in restraint and self-containment.) The piece starts out with the usual suspects, Paulson, Geithner, Bernanke, Yellin, Dodd, Frank, and the intellectually obese Larry Summers chortling over champagne and hors d'oeuvre as if they saved the world—and people are still wondering how and why Trump was elected? They're laughing on camera, but they're really laughing at us (assuming, of course, they know we even exist). Which un-useful idiots thought that an adjustable rate mortgage (ARM) was ever a great idea, let alone a good idea, especially when we had "the best and the brightest" knowing full well that the wages of the middle class have been stagnant for over twenty years (at the time). Effectively, the Wall Street banks are the American Taliban who knowingly planted implosive economic devices (IEDs) on the road to American prosperity. Hank Paulson (Batman) is introduced as the dealmaker whose word is as good as his U.S. Bonds, Timmy Geithner (Robin) as the policy wonk who had been battling glow-ball financial panics ever since he grew out of diapers, and Ben Bernanke (Alfred Pennyworth), the college econ professor-turned-reluctant-Federal Preserve board member who had studied The Great Depression™. Effectively, we are subtly introduced to the holy trinity—at least the way it looked in the year of our lord, 2008. When I glimpse any of these soi-disant peniuses, I'm reminded of Jim Carrey's manic-mask Loki who boastfully proclaimed, "Somebody stop me." Please, somebody stop them! Rated R and R for "rinse and repeat"—Washingtonspeak® for the upcoming Sequel. Let's make the Depression™ great again.

  14. Well i suggest HBO Vice being researching and preparing for another video like this coz US always have a big financial crisis every 10 yrs. US just never learns. Unfortunately, every time america suffers a crisis, it drags the whole world with it. Hurray for mighty america
