Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas) is released from prison in October 22, 2001 after an almost eight-year prison sentence for securities fraud. Out of habit, he approaches a limo pulling up to the prison, only to discover that the car was picking up another inmate. As the rest of the released prisoners joyously greet their families and go home, Gekko is left standing all alone. Seven years later, Jacob "Jake" Moore (Shia LaBeouf) is awakened in his apartment by his girlfriend, Winnie (Carey Mulligan). Jake turns on the television, and there is an interview with Gekko on television. Gekko has become an author and a lecturer promoting his new book, "Is Greed Good?" Winnie gets upset and throws the remote at the TV after Jake does not turn it off. Winnie is Gekko’s estranged daughter and wants nothing to do with him. Jake drives Winnie to the airport on his motorbike, and she goes off to gather investors for her online political magazine. Jake goes to work again at Keller Zabel Investments (the film's fictionalized version of Bear Stearns), one of Wall Street's major investment banks. He tries to raise more money for a fusion research project, which will be a viable source of alternative energy down the line, but the rest of the board does not agree with him. Jake is one of the firm’s top proprietary traders and the protégé of its managing director, Lewis Zabel (Frank Langella). Zabel has become disillusioned with the industry and does not understand how he can be told a loss is a profit. He gives Jake a 1.495 million dollar bonus and tells him to spend it and keep the economy going. Zabel also encourages Jake to marry Winnie and have a kid since he knows that growing old is not for the weak and that Jake needs her. Jake goes out to celebrate with his best friend and buys Winnie a ring. He mentions that Winnie is not big on marriage, given the outcome of her parents' marriage, but Jake knows that she loves him and he loves her. His friend asks about rumors that Keller Zabel is in danger, but Jake brushes it off. He bets his broker friend that Keller Zabel stock will be going up and invests the remaining million of his bonus. The next day the company’s stock starts crashing and loses nearly fifty percent of its value. Jake's broker friend urges Jake to sell his shares to at least come out without even one ounce of debt, because Jake had leveraged up his million dollar position in the stock to 1.5 million through margin. Jake ignores his friend's suggestion to sell and goes looking for Lou Zabel. Zabel doesn't come in to work so Jake goes and finds him walking his wife's dog in the park. Jake asks him if Keller Zabel is going to go under, but Zabel just tells him that the right question is, "Who isn't?" Zabel meets with the heads of major financial institutions and the Secretary of the US Treasury at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Zabel tries to arrange a bank bailout, but he is blocked by Bretton James (Josh Brolin), the CEO of Churchill Schwartz (the film's fictionalized fusion of JPMorgan Chase and Goldman Sachs), that Zabel had refused to bail out eight years prior when they were going under. James insults Zabel by offering to buy Keller Zabel stock at 2 dollars a share (against its 79 dollar trading value from three weeks prior). Zabel gives in and they settle for 3 dollars a share.
