Baker-Nord Center’s “Interpreting Capitalism” Film Series to continue with “Inside Job” April 3

InsideJobFlyerThe next film in the Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities’ “Interpreting Capitalism Film Series,” is Inside Job, the 2010 Oscar winner for Best Documentary.

Inside Job provides a comprehensive analysis of the global financial crisis of 2008, which at a cost of more than $20 trillion, caused millions of people to lose their jobs and homes in the worst recession since the Great Depression, and nearly resulted in a global financial collapse. Through exhaustive research and extensive interviews with key financial insiders, politicians, journalists, and academics, the film traces the rise of a rogue industry that has corrupted politics, regulation, and academia.

The film will be introduced by Robert Strassfeld, professor of law, and will be screened on Thursday, April 3, from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Wolstein Research Building auditorium.
