It’s getting colder outside than Gordon Gekko’s heart, which means it’s time to start holing up indoors with a nice cup of cocoa and good old Netflix Inc. (NFLX) streaming. Or Hulu Plus, or Amazon (AMZN) Prime. But probably Netflix.
At Equities.com the only thing we love more than impatience is watching movies about Wall Street. So we went through and picked out our favorite financial movies that are currently available to Watch Instantly on Netflix. So if your idea of a good time is watching movies about the financial sector – which it should be! – check out one of these five flicks:
1) Margin Call
A latter-day classic, Margin Call might have been modeled after the 2008 financial crisis, but the story’s twists and turns would be right at home at any point in late capitalism. The movie, which takes place in a single 24-hour period, centers on a fictional investment bank that has learned that the highly leveraged toxic assets they hold could self-destruct at any moment, becoming worthless and taking down the entire company – and possibly the entire financial system.
The type of deals most traders make these days would be nearly unrecognized by the traders of yore: people hunched over computers, sitting in silence, occasionally tapping buttons. But just a couple decades ago, trading was a completely different kind of animal: fast-paced, loud, and just an absolute frenzy. To be sure, this type of trading still exists, and has a place on the New York Stock Exchange and the Chicago Commodities Exchange. But it’s a dying art, one explored thoroughly in the 2010 documentary The Pit.
Like Margin Call, The Pit shows the two sides of “raw capitalism”: the soaring highs of success, but also how everything can disappear as instantly as you can watch this movie on Netflix.
不过，这种风潮好像不是在表达如今的女人想穿什么，而是在逃避，认为最安全的着装方式是回归过去，我认为这种想法是错误的。 Here's a full rundown of the activity—and inactivity—with an eye towards naming this year's trade deadline winners and losers. 科技巨头腾讯创始人马化腾凭借2790亿元的身家位居榜首，阿里巴巴的马云和恒大集团的许家印紧随其后，其个人财富分别为2600亿元和2290亿元。 13. 还有更好的。10月，《洛杉矶时报》报道，平等工作机会委员会正在调查这个行业内的性别歧视现象，美国民权同盟要求各州与联邦机构继自己之后各自进行调查。 It is the first biography to win the prize, although Mr Greenspan’s autobiography, The Age of Turbulence, was shortlisted in 2007, the year before the financial crisis raised serious questions about the central banker’s legacy. According to a notice jointly issued by the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security and the Ministry of Finance, the average monthly payments for both enterprise and institution retirees will be increased by about 5.5% from the 2016 level. 实际上，1至10月份的增速小幅升至8.3%。该指标大致反映了长期支出。
It fell on Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson to sell this toughest of sells to the American public after the meltdown, and Hank: Five Years From the Brink tells the story of how he persuaded everyone to go along with this plan that (almost certainly) saved the economy form economic collapse.
At its own auction the following evening, Sotheby’s achieved a far more respectable total of 22.6 million with fees, although it was just above the low estimate of 21.8 million based on hammer prices. Of the 44 lots offered, 15 did not sell, or 34 percent. The Cnzz.com report also discusses the problem of the 'free-to-play' business model that's prevalent in China's online game sector. While many games companies in the U.S., for example, charge subscription fees, most Chinese games utilize the free-to-play model, which allows players to try out a game without paying. The longer players stay in the game, the more likely they will be to pay for in-game items to move up into higher levels of play. But that also means that people who spend the most money are the best performers.
4) The Flaw
Another doc that touches on the 2008 crisis (it was a pretty big story, after all), The Flaw looks not just at the upper echelons of the financial crisis, as Hank and Margin Call do, but also digs into how the meltdown affected the rest of the American public and the world at large.
In interviews with economists, homeowners, bankers, journalists, and others deeply affected by the crisis, The Flaw provides a somewhat humorous, cynical, but still entertaining take on how a great, gaping flaw in the system was exploited by a few key people at the top, and how that “flaw” ultimately affected the entire world.
5) Trading Places
Trading Places is one of the best movies ever made about the financial markets (in this case, not Wall Street per se but the Chicago Commodity Exchange), and it’s a Christmas movie to boot. It’s the story of a street hustler and a commodities broker switching places. And of course, the movie takes no time at all to parallel high-class thieves (unscrupulous brokers) and low-class thieves (bookies), and how the latter get punished while the former are often rewarded handsomely. The ultimate connection between the two worlds is cemented in a very memorable scene where the Duke brothers explain commodities trading to a young Billy Ray Valentine (Eddie Murphy), with Valentine calling it like he sees it.
埃玛·莫拉诺(Emma Morano) 2. Take baby steps. 为什么会有这样的不同？原因并不是因为双方获得的信息不同。正如库迪斯和沃斯所指，荷兰金融圈里的每个人都知道和了解所发生事件的严重程度。也不是因为Seppenwolde的贷款机构不得不重建自身财务。违约几周后，贷款机构就知道他们没有损失一毛钱。 A recent example: When Gwen Stefani launched her new album Spark the Fire, Swyft created a free sticker pack and distributed it on several of its messaging apps. It was downloaded almost a million times and sent between users seven million times, resulting in 41 million impressions in 10 days. Such campaigns cost anywhere from $50,000 to $250,000 for brands, Wray says.
