Could the global economic meltdown of the last few years have been prevented? Ferguson believes the crisis was no accident. After “Inside Job” won the 2011 Academy Award for Best Documentary Film, Ferguson started his acceptance speech by criticizing the lack of accountability of the finance industry and Wall Street pointing out that three years after the horrific crisis started not a single financial executive had gone to jail.
“Predator Nation” continues to examine the important issues raised in “Inside Job”, making the powerful case that an out-of-control finance industry took advantage of a deregulated atmosphere and purposely got rich at the expense of others. Through his extensive interviews with financial insiders and government officials, Ferguson exposes the corrupted networks that caused the economic collapse and offers a plan of action to help our country get back on track.
