Who put millions out of work, destroyed hundreds of billions of dollars in net worth, nearly toppled countries and the world economy? In the new documentary, “Inside Job,” filmmaker Charles Ferguson says business school and economics professors share the blame. In addition to out-of-control Wall Street financiers and asleep-on-the-job regulators, Ferguson’s documentary shows how some professors played a key role in the crisis by lauding financial industry practices that weren’t working, as they took home millions from Wall Street firms.

This segment aired on November 10, 2010.
