Our Eco Film on Friday, June 28th will be Let’s Make Money.
Documentary, 2008 – 110 minutes. Director- Erwin Wagenhofer. Austria. German w/English subtitles.
Most of us don’t know where our money is. However, one thing is certain, it’s not in the bank to which we entrusted it. The bank and our money are already a part of the cycle of the global money market.
Let’s Make Money is about aspects of the development of the world wide financial system, focusing on how elitists economically exploit the rest of society, especially in the developing world, but also in Western nations. The film starts by tracking the hypothetical savings of a typical depositor as they move around the global system, often causing exploitation as various financial agents try to produce high returns. There are several interviews with investment managers, politicians, economists as well as homeless people and workers.
