My favorite recent movie is “The Big Short.” I admire its craftsmanship. It turns a subject as complex and dense as the origins of the foreclosure crisis into two hours of riveting entertainment, which is no small task.
I am also simply glad to see the story of the foreclosure crisis get the attention it deserves. As the movie reveals, the crisis was not a naturally occurring adjustment to the housing market, but a once-in-a-generation financial catastrophe. It had villains – unconscionable financial industry greed, feckless government and rating agency regulation, outright fraud and reckless borrowing. And it had victims.
