When I first saw the movie, The Big Short, I fell in love with it. Not because it was a great movie, but because there was this one scene in the movie, about the trio going to Miami to do field research, which was the turning point in the movie. The field research resonated with me and that is why I loved the movie.
Shifting gears, it was a pleasant surprise when I came across Jawwad Farid’s post on the movie and understanding the complex financial products as outlined in the movie.
Jawwad’s done a great job of explaining it. Do read it.
