The Big Short movie 2015

Certainly remarkable. I really like the way Bale portrays him in the movie. He has these quirks like whispering to himself at times.



I also think the most damning moment in the movie is when Steve Carell's character asks the S&P rating agency's lady 'you're not downgrading sub-prime bonds, but have you ever refused to rate any?' and eventually she cracks and goes 'if we don't give them the ratings they'll go to Moody's, right down the block'.


Yeah entire system is big time skinko. A joke. And their doing it again now with BTO's.

It is an axiomatic fact that while you meditate you are speaking with your own spirit. In that state of mind you put certain questions to your spirit and the spirit answers: the light breaks forth and the reality is revealed.

The film ends with a sign that goes


Quoting 
In 2015, several large banks began selling billions in something called a 'Bespoke Tranche Opportunity'.





Which, according to Bloomberg News, is just another name for a CDO.

I haven't read it in full but I have read parts of it. Those parts I've read are depicted quite accurately in the movie.

I was just reading this site which may have some answers:

https://projects.propublica.org/bailout/

https://projects.propublica.org/bailout/list/losses
etc.

Interesting reading along with the SEC link I gave before detailing a rather pathetic amount of fines in most cases. Not surprised, I was watching the new series "Billions" today where someone comments that SEC fines are just a cost of doing business for large institutions and nothing for them to be concerned about.

Off the top of my head I would have to say with so many many loans falling into this category some would have been and others not. It would be more of a case by case thing. But I don't know for sure. Banks TO BIG TO FAIL and therefore saved by Uncle Sam I'm sure had to deal with this somehow inside the mortgage backed securities taking them apart? What a complete joke those things had a "great rating" by the likes of S&P. Makes me wonder just how many people there were that had 10 mortgages on at the same time as ARM's with short time periods and monstrous payments waiting on the other side of the new rate. I'd bet ones like that were written off. Can't get blood out of a turnip.

I actually enjoyed Carell and Gosling in this movie very much; they complemented each other very well. The only humorous part I found not funny were with Christian Bale.
