The truth is, on Wall Street

a lot of people just weren't

very good at their jobs.

It started out 16 months

ago as a mortgage crisis

and it slowly evolved

into a credit crisis.

We ask about the taxpayers

being on the hook,

guess what?

an unusual step for a lame duck

president, but the country...

Trying to be free

market advocate

when it's really an

"anything goes" mentality.

On Friday, Congress

finally passed

and President Bush

signed into law...

Begin to restore

strength and stability

will buy out Wall Street's

bad investments.

A full-blown

financial storm.

In just 6 months, 3 of the 5

biggest independent firms

on Wall Street have

now disappeared.

numbers are staggering

they don't begin to explain

the greed and incompetence

that created this mess.

No regulation, no

supervision, no discipline.

Terrible debt that was

gnified by reckless borrowing

and complex securities.

The idea that you could

lend money to someone

who could not pay it back is not

an inherently attractive idea.

I don't know why this

company's coming to Congress.

However it seemed to fly

with people who were making

$10 million a year.

They think they can take

that money

and do whatever

they wanna do.

They decide to punish

the country.

Neel Kashkari, the man

in charge of the bailout.

We're supposed to be with the

smartest investors in the

world

and they did it themselves.

I would call it criminal

neglect and incompetence.

They're certainly

not worth it.

Instead of helping consumers

with mortgages and loans.

People at the top of these

firms chose to look away,

to take more risk

to enrich themselves

and it is truly a crime.

What's our risk?

12 billion.

But we have a real

situation here,

our clients are

about to jump ship.

The problem is saving this

company, not the clients.

This company!

We shifted 4 billion

into deposits,

which leaves us with 8.

But that move only buys us

a few more weeks, at best.

I talked to Meryl, they said

they'd ensure the paper

for two weeks but they want

200 million to do it.

Two weeks is nothing, we need

two months at least.

No, it's time for triage.

It's time to dump the

certificates on the market,

all of them.

What about the pension

fund investors?

We're talking over

15 billion.

But if other houses

follow suit,

Our priority is saving this

house and f*ck all the others!

Our responsibility begins

and ends with our partners

and our shareholders

and that's it.

Investors gamble, they lose,

that's the risk that

they agreed to take.

why should they complain when

they lose money on the market?

Shit happens, now dump it!

Dump it all

right f*cking now!

Even after we dump the stocks

we're still far too exposed

and we've got

no parachute here.

I'm gonna take care of that.

Charlotte?

with the secretary of treasury?

Will do.

Today.

Understood sir, today.

Thanks.

You heard Stancroft,

the entire company's

in jeopardy.

Yeah, with 51 million

in his pocket...

and you know as well as

I do, this is bullshit.

This is Stancroft and his

f*cking pissing contest

with his goddamn pluggers.

but we don't really

have a choice, do we?

All right people, listen up!

All right, I've got some

great news for you guys.

In the next three days

we are gonna increase

your incentives by 3 percent.

But I need you to get on

the horn and get all

your top clients

and really push the real

estate growth superfund.

As well, you will be receiving

a memo

in the next couple minutes

detailing all the products

that we need you guys

to unload.

Whoever sells the most

Uwe Boll

Uwe Boll (German: [ˈuːvə ˈbɔl]; born June 22, 1965) is a German-born Canadian restaurateur and retired filmmaker. He financed his own films through his production companies Boll KG and Event Film Productions. Many of his films were produced on low budgets and Boll himself had backed his projects financially or made use of crowdfunding platforms. Boll's filmmaking career is generally divided into two distinct phases: the first consists of big budget films with a usually renowned cast, most of which gained him a reputation as a "schlock maestro", while receiving highly negative reviews from critics, with Alone in the Dark being considered one of the worst films ever made. However his second phase is marked by films with a smaller budget or were independently made, relatively unknown actors and different approaches to filmmaking; Boll's Rampage film series, Tunnel Rats, Stoic, Amoklauf, Heart of America, Assault on Wall Street and Darfur have been better (or mildly well) received by critics. After losing financing and facing constant criticism, Boll partially retired from filmmaking in 2016 to work in the restaurant industry. He opened his Bauhaus Restaurant in Vancouver, which has earned positive reviews among food critics. more…
