Interesting Movies and Documentaries on Finance

Dear Friends,
Today I am sharing few movies and documentaries on Finance. The videos are mostly relevant to the financial crisis of 2008.

Movies:
1. Wall Street (1987):

2. Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (2010):

3. Margin Call (2011)
This is one of my favorite movie, it focuses on the days just before the 2008 financial crisis and how the events unfolded which led to the markets to crash.

4. The Wolf of Wallstreet (2013)

5. Moneyball (2011)

Documentaries:
1. Enron: The Smartest guys in the Room (2005)

2. The Ascent of Money (2008)
This is a very good documentary, which was telecasted on BBC. The documentary shows the evolution of money from beginning till the financial crisis of 2008.

3. Floored (2009)

4. Inside Job (2010)
This is again a documentary on the financial crisis of 2008 which analyses the cause and effect of the crisis.

Hope you enjoy the movies and documentaries. Feel free to add more to this list by commenting on this post.

Cheers!
Vijay

Chasing the Monsoon

11th July 2014 and 12th July 2014

This was the title of “Rail Bandhu” – The on-board magazine from Indian Railways, on my maiden train journey from New Delhi to Cuttack, Odisha.

In the first half of my journey the adage “Do not judge the book by its cover” felt so true. I did not bother to open the book.

In the second half of the my journey, when the train entered Odisha state. I was awestruck to notice the two extremes of the weather which existed in India. Such is the vastness of India.

I started my journey from a place where people were praying to Lord Indra to show some mercy and my journey ended where monsoon was at its full glory. It appeared that Lord Indra (The Rain God) showed special interest in this part of the world :). There was relentless rainfall occasionally accompanied by thunderstorm and lightening. I had to pray for the rain to stop so that I can carry my luggage comfortable to my to-be home for the next two years. I was on my way to Sri Sri University, Cuttack, Odisha for admission to two years full-time MBA program in General Management.

Finally, I decided to turn the pages of the on-board magazine titled – “Chasing the Monsoon”. It showed glimpses of the natures beauty during the Monsoon in different parts of India. It also showcased the new SMS alert system introduced/proposed by the Indian Railways in Railway budget 2014. This will keep the Indian Railway passengers updated about the ticket status, arrival time and departure time of trains on/from platform.

Below are some snaps I captured on my way from Cuttack station to the University Campus.

At the end of my journey, I concluded that Lord Indra is a smart manager who always keeps himself in demand.
