A big budget Hollywood movie, The Big Short, is coming to theaters near you this month. Based upon the novel by Michael Lewis, it is a story of how some financial guys on Wall Street saw the manipulations in the Housing market in 2005 and figured out a way to make money from what they predicted would be a financial collapse. Sure enough, in 2007, the housing bubble burst, financial institutions collapsed, and the reverberations were felt in the economy.
