This was a warning sign for the 2008 economic crisis
12 April 2010 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This documentary shows the influence of debt in everyday life. From consumer dependence, credit card advertisement, the economic system to politics and law.

This documentary was definitely worth watching. It informs about the forms of debt you get offered by corporations, showing all consequences of the deal. It sheds light on the dark side of consumer debt.

What surprised me is that no other reviewer mentions that this documentary predates the 2008 economic collapse. It tells about sub-prime loans, reselling of mortgages by banks and the uneven battle between individual consumers and big corporations.
