"The Flaw" - VERY strong recommendation !!! Excellent post 'rkg' and please everyone, do yourselves a favour and do try to engage with this !! Anyone who has watched and liked the excellent documentary film, 'Inside Job' ( http://vimeo.com/24981578 ), will really like this film { http://www.theflawmovie.com/ } !

People all over the world are still struggling with the aftermath of the greatest financial crisis since the Wall Street Crash of 1929. We all know what the effects have been but what exactly were the causes ? "The Flaw" ranges widely across the history of American capitalism in the twentieth century, its rigour laced with sardonic humour and peopled with a cast of characters that spans from Nobel-prize winning economists and distressed home owners to the New York Times financial correspondent on the brink of foreclosure and the Wall Street banker who feels the pain encoded in his spreadsheets. The film argues that the roots of the crisis lie in the changing relationship between the rich and the rest in American society.

It's a 'hulu' link and only available in The USA but I'll be trying to find a link for worldwide viewing 'asap'. I have seen this film broadcast on TV and so am able to pass this opinion so please watch and enjoy :-)

Re. "Inside Job" , "The Flaw" and similar films, without reference to documentaries such as these, then on the matter of 'Economics' ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7xEwbzEBw14 ;-)

Thus, with a view to averting this : http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/category/economics/ .
