The Big Short

Four denizens of the world of high-finance predict the credit and housing bubble collapse of the mid-2000s, and decide to take on the big banks for their greed and lack of foresight.

Writer/Director Adam McKay and New York Times and NPR Economics Journalist Adam Davidson lead a thoughtful and engaging roundtable discussion about The Big Short and what exactly happened during the 2007 financial crisis. Featured alongside McKay and Davidson are economists and professors including Thomas Philippon, Prof. Economics, NYU, Kim Schoenholtz, Prof. Economics, NYU, Anat Admati, Prof. Finance & Economics, Stanford University, and Jennifer La’O, Prof. Economics, Columbia University.

The Big Short is based on the true story and the #1 New York Times bestselling book by Michael Lewis.
