Maxed Out: Hard Times, Easy Credit and the Era of Predatory Lenders ★★½ 2006

Scurlock tries to explain the wheeling and dealing of the financial community by focusing on the worst case scenarios of the consumer-lending industry, involving massive consumer debt, too easy credit, ill-advised loans, and bankruptcy and foreclosures. Basically most people are dumb about money and even dumber when it comes to borrowing and getting into (and less likely out of) debt. 86m/C DVD . USD: James D. Scurlock; W: James D. Scurlock; C: Jon Aaron Aaseng; M: Benoit Vharest.
