The Smartest Guys in the Room

It's a great documentary on the Enron debacle. While it is corporate criminal misconduct, it is rife with regulators, limited space monopolies being handed crony-style, and all sorts of nasty collusion between industry and government to juice a phony stock price amidst a stock market bubble.

I'd watch it in advance and get your talking points ready, though. The 'villains' might be mistaken for laissez faire to someone with a immature view of markets/economics.
