A mix of humor and knowledge of the world economy.
22 February 2019 | by sanketmistry9See all my reviews

I found it very interesting. The series was directed by Adam McKay (The Big Short). The series gave the accence of The big Short like many guest actors were on the episodes and explaining some concepts of economics, but Its not very difficult to understand the docu series. The series says how people do things like corruption, money laundering and others. I loved the show to the fullest. It will shock you and amaze you.
