In the midst of the 2008 market crash, investors on the fringes of the financial world feverishly sought new alternatives for high-return in the global markets. With Chinese indexes demonstrating explosive growth, China suddenly emerged as a gold rush opportunity with one caveat: US investors were prohibited from investing directly in the country’s market. Makeshift solutions led to a market frenzy until one investor discovered the massive web of fraud left in it’s wake. Jed Rothstein’s documentary uncovers the biggest heist you’ve never heard of.
