Wall Street Conspiracy
Grand Lake Theater in Oakland
Monday—November 12 at 7:30 PM.
Doors open at 7:00—admission is $10 for this one time showing
Meet filmmaker Kristina Leigh Copeland, who began digging into Wall Street irregularities years before the 2008 financial collapse. What she uncovered —manipulation of the market through "naked short selling" of stocks — has became the focus of her first documentary, The Wall Street Conspiracy. While manipulation and fraud are not new to Wall Street, Copeland found that the shift to electronic transactions have made billion-dollar deals based on inflated share counts and manipulated price drops easier to commit and harder to uncover. Copeland's documentary reminds us of the Savings and Loan Fraud, the Libor scandle, and the continuing possibility of financial insider manipulations by huge banks, venture capital funds and organized crime in a globalized electronic market.
