The housing market along with Bear Sterns collapses. Michael Burry (Christian Bale), Mark Baum (Steve Carell), Jared Vennett (Ryan Gosling), Charlie Geller (John Magaro) and Jamie Shipley (Finn Wittrock) managed to get rich.
Michael Burry is now investing in water. Ben Rickert (Brad PItt) invests in seeds.
Thanks Michael R!
