You should watch it, its not bull. The main guy in the doc is an ex-Quant. He quit in 2000 and now farms oysters for a living.

But i doubt that i would see (learn) anything about the stupid western system -- especially the stupidest system, the usofa system.
And, stupidiy (krappynomix) iz worse than dirtyness -- and even the good guys (whistle'blowers) dont understand the stupidity of krappynomix.

Lets see -- there are lots of types of wrong (not important).
..... wrong.
..... false.
..... non'korrekt.
..... bad.
..... non'legal.
..... corrupt.
..... non'fair.
..... erroneous.
..... mistaken.
..... non'moral.
..... stupid.
..... dirty.

I know what Quants are. Mr Sack could be one if he chose to. I didn't get to finish the Doc. I have been busy but from what I saw, I think the picture they are painting is a bit slanted. They are not telling the whole story. I'll watch the rest of it.
