Commentary from U.S. Rep. Barney Frank, University of San Diego law professor Frank Partnoy, and International Monetary Fund managing director Dominique Strauss-Kahn is also included in the film, along with interviews with other prominent professors, journalists, and economic leaders.

He is a former director of the Division of Trading and Markets at the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission, and he is frequently asked to speak at symposia, appear in the media, and testify before lawmakers at regulatory bodies on issues related to dysfunctions in financial markets.
