On the other hand, The Big Short nails most of the historical context in a short two hours, given an academic consensus of the Great Recession’s hard data. What the major characters figured out that people writing housing bubble stories didn’t was how the rot from bad mortgage loans that helped fuel the housing bubble had come to permeate supposedly safe securities. There were billions of dollars of highly rated bonds floating around that were in fact worthless, or at least worth far less than advertised. The key transmission mechanism that turned a simple correction in the housing market into a global financial crisis were those bonds. Global banks had loaded up on these supposedly safe securities, and were at risk of becoming insolvent when their true value became known.

Perspective and perceptive differences are created by the combination of conflicting personal characteristics and interactional difficulties subject to each individual's interpretation (Borkowski, 2016, p. 309).
