Storyline

The Bubble is coming out at a crucial time in American history. America needs a simple economics lesson on the coming crash. Tom Woods wrote a NY Times bestseller on the housing crash and now he has teamed up with experts such as Ron Paul, Peter Schiff, Jim Rogers, Marc Faber, David Stockman, and Doug Casey to reveal where these financial bubbles keep coming from. The Bubble features interviews with those who actually predicted the housing crisis and recession. Austrian economists have predicted every major US crash in the last century, and they are the only ones with the insight necessary to bring us out of this economic slide. This film asks them why this crisis happened, but more importantly, why do they think the next one will be a lot worse. Written by Jimmy Morrison

Quotes

[from trailer]
Peter Schiff: They couldn't see this train wreck coming, even though it was staring them in the face. They're the people who are still in charge. They're the ones who are fixing the economy, when they don't understand why it broke. In fact, they broke it, and they're trying to fix it by doing more of what broke it in the first place!

Great Doc!
3 July 2019 | by marshallcunninghamSee all my reviews

The Housing Bubble does a great job at explaining the role of interest rates and inflation on an economy. While it focuses on the housing bubble, it gives a great overview of the recent history of the boom-bust business cycle in the United States, all while keeping the viewer entertained with clever editing.

I was amazed with how much I had learned in just over an hour! A great watch for anyone, regardless of their economic literacy.
