The housing crisis of the mid 2000s hurt the U.S. economy. On Thursday, February 6, we take a look back with this Academy Award®-winning film, THE BIG SHORT. Starring Steve Carell, Brad Pitt, Christian Bale, and Ryan Gosling, we enter the world of hedge-funds and the impact they had on this catastrophe. When one Wall Street guru realizes the a number of subprime home loans are in danger of defaulting, investors move around money and bet against the housing market. They take full advantage of the eventual economic downturn. What happens to them? Well tune in February 6 9pET to find out. All part of our 24/7 COUNTDOWN TO THE OSCARS® marathon on HDNET MOVIES.
