Poll: What Is Your Favourite Documentary Film about the 2008 Financial Crisis?
In a poll conducted last week in the CFA Institute Financial NewsBrief, we asked readers for their favorite documentary film about the 2008 financial crisis.
Inside Job emerged as the clear favorite, selected by nearly half of the 346 respondents. Interestingly, “other” (16%) was the second choice — indicating that many people preferred another in the slew of crisis-themed documentaries not included in this poll. Niall Ferguson’s The Ascent of Money (12%) was a distant third, and Michael Moore’s Capitalism: A Love Story (7%) finished fourth.
The distribution of results is dissimilar to results of our earlier poll on readers’ favorite finance movie of all time. In that poll, we did not have a dominant favorite, and two movies — Trading Places and Wall Street — had a neck-and-neck competition, with the former managing to edge out the latter.
