He predicts that the housing market will eventually collapse, bringing the whole economy down and he sees the opportunity to make a profit, taking the advantage of the whole situation and creating a credit swap market.
He approaches several banks and investors with this idea and they accept his proposal, still believing that the housing market is stable. However, he faces the resistance from his clients who believe that he is wasting their money. After the market collapse, like he predicted, he earned 489% profits from the plan.
Very interesting movie about the events that have marked the entire decade and led to the biggest recession in the whole world. Christian Bale’s performance was astonishing as always. Take a look at the trailer of this amazing movie!
