I'm looking for suggestions for good movies or documentaries that are mostly focused on economics.

I've just finished watching Inside Job, and thought it was pretty good. Interested to know anyone else's opinion of it.

Not without lots of beer. Besides, Bitcoin economics make everything else obsolete. Look forward, we're in uncharted (virtual) territory.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

Free To Choose 1980 series by Milton Friedman. He pretty much lays down the law on economics and the implications government policies. He dispels many commonly held myths, most of which are still prevalent today.

The middle men, a quite entertaining movie about how the first to create card payments.

Wallstreet 2
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r1YjwFty7-I

A very good talk by Chris Martenson, He explains why growth can be expected to be negative in the future as oil prices rise.

Hulu has Enron: Smartest Guys in the Room.  But it might be expiring tomorrow?  So you might want to check it out today if you're interested.

As mentioned, Margin Call was very good.

Bad movie, but excellent at highlighting cause & effect related to differing perspectives on money:

Several episodes of "Frontline" have been about economics and the collapse. Frontline is on PBS and is perhaps the best investigative journalism on TV. You can stream it from the link below.

Excellent book, haven't seen the movie: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1152822/

Interesting that you said Movies/ Docos...so you're interested in both documentaries and fictional movies about economics?

Some of both:

Glengarry Glen Ross (1992), Trader (1987), Quants: The Alchemists Of Wall Street (2010).

Not a movie, but anyone who hasn't seen the series Wall Street Warriors should do so (free on hulu):

http://www.hulu.com/wall-street-warriors

It was filmed right at the '07 peak and downturn. No wonder why they stopped at season 2  Grin

With the benefit of hindsight, it is plagued with lol moments. Hilarious throughout.  Cheesy
