Nicely put.  Yes, that was pretty nearly Deirdre's reaction, upon
watching this very meticulous movie (and recipient of the 2010 Academy
Award for Best Documentary) the first time.  About the time she got to
Goldman and others making a $4 billion quick profit 'betting' (taking a
huge position in credit default swaps) on collapse of the very same
subprime mortgage market they were underwriting at the time, it's a
lucky thing no AIG or Goldman executives were around.

I like very much the fact that the movie names names.
