Incredible, Incredible, INCREDIBLE!
30 September 2012 | by (Wyoming) – See all my reviews

As massive as the scheme was, so massive is the greatness of this documentary! Anyone who wondered about what happened will be informed, educated, amazed, and mind-blown! The saddest part was near the end when Markopolos and the other whistle blowers realized that the scheme hurt so many "common" people, not just the big guys. When you analyze things, you realize that the world economy is based on TRUST... in each other in our personal transactions, in businesses, institutions, and government and when that trust is to VILELY violated, the entire system suffers. Rebuilding that trust in the aftermath will take many careful years. But it is both ironic and somewhat self-satisfying to know that ultimately the scheme was blown by the pressures of the market itself. Markopolos and all of us must stand firm in the faith of the FREE AND OPEN marketplace to weed out the evil and corrupt. This documentary is a MUST SEE!
