The Big Short

Three years before the global crisis of 2008 caused by subprime mortgages that practically sank the global financial system, four guys outside the system were the only ones who glimpsed that the entire mortgage market was going to collapse. They then decided to do something unusual: bet against the housing market on the downside, against any logical criteria at that time... An adaptation of the book “The Great Bet” by Michael Lewis, which reflects on the bankruptcy of the US real estate sector that originated the global economic crisis in 2008.
