Dirty Money (Show)

One of the highly-rated series on Netflix which tells stories of corporate corruption, securities fraud and creative accounting. It is spread across two seasons each having 6 independent documentaries which expose greed, corruption, and crime spreading to the global economy. It is a must-watch if you were to take our view.

The Laundromat

It is a story of a widower who manages to expose worldwide fraud on a mammoth scale. It is based on a true story of history’s biggest data leak (Panama Papers)’ that exposed how the world’s wealthiest people protected their millions. But it’s not exposed in its entirety.

Rating – 6.3/10 ; Available on Netflix

Shark Tank (Show)

Where do we even begin with this show? If you have that entrepreneurial bug in you, then this show is best suited for you. It is a reality show where people come in with their business ideas and present them to the judges (i.e investors). If they like the idea and the prospects of the business they negotiate and invest in the company, then and there. And yes we are talking real money here. The series is into its 12th season now but don’t worry you can start from any episode you want as there is no connection between each episode (except for update on old deals). We would highly recommend watching as it has motivated us to pursue our dreams and innovate and start a business.
