The title of this movie is taken from a book written in 1914 by Louis Brandeis. In his book, Brandeis posited the fact that bankers and others who ran public companies were utilizing other people's money, and therefore owed those people fiduciary duties. In the late 1970s, a leasing company that proved to be one of the largest securities frauds to that point, used as its name "O.P.M.," standing for "other people's money. In this movie, the title embodies the same concerns about the fiduciary responsibilities of those who manage other people's money. See more
