Why ‘The China Hustle’ is a finance documentary all U.S. investors need to see

In the new documentary, “The China Hustle,” there’s a moment when Dan David, a whistleblower and activist short-seller, returns home to his extended family and explains his work. He is trying to stop dubious Chinese firms from profiting on the U.S. stock market through backdoor, reverse takeovers. He argues these Chinese entities are frauds that egregiously overstate profit and revenue in order to attract U.S. investors who are hungry for exposure to the China boom following the 2008 market crash.

“I’ll bet against them, and I’ll write a report and I’ll publish it,” he says to the friends and family gathered for a barbecue.
