Charles Ferguson’s movie Inside Job portrays as
- evil: Feldstein, Hubbard, Paulson, Rubin, Summers, Wall Street, … ;
- clueless or not convincing: Bernanke, Campbell, Geithner, Greenspan, Mishkin, Portes, … ;
- aware (at least ex post): Buiter, Johnson, Lagarde, Lo, Partney, Rogoff, Roubini, Strauss-Kahn, Tett, Wolf, … .
Economics and economists are considered part of the problem rather than the solution. While the movie
- depicts Ragu Rajan as the hero,
it is silent about the fact that Rajan is one of the most prominent economists.
