Question Description

As a reminder, this is work that we are doing in lieu of meeting in class Weds 2/20. But it's fun, especially if you love to sit back and enjoy a movie! For this assignment, you are to choose a movie from the list below and then write it up. As with your earlier papers, the format is:

  • summary of movie
  • summary of economic issues
  • analysis of economic issues- be sure to tie this in to what we've been doing in class
  • your opinion of the video- did they do a good job portraying the topic(s), did you leave with more questions you'd like to research (if so, what are they), did the film seem objective or biased?

Your response should be 2-3 pages, including any references other than the video.

Please note that some of the videos contain strong language (Wall Street types are always swearing like the proverbial sailor in films) so you might want to check them out before you plan to watch them with your family!
