I watched this after watching about Bernie Madoff. As a documentary, it is such an interesting bit of history, linking Enron, the California debt and subsequent election of Arnold ruler, and the links to the Bush family.

And how little things really changed between 2001 and the GFC and Bernie Madoff.

This is a story about greed, arrogance, and corruption...and how it all went wrong.

This documentary both cleared up what happened when Enron folded, but also raises a few more questions. You can't help but feel a little sympathy with the common worker, but at the same time feel deeply infuriated with the traders that shut down power to make more money.

Well made documentary and a highly recommended watch...
