Inside Job

"This is no dry economics lesson; it is a vital wake-up call. "
- Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"Mr. Ferguson has summoned the scourging moral force of a pulpit-shaking sermon. That he delivers it with rigor, restraint and good humor makes his case all the more devastating."
A.O Scott, New York Times
