Himself - Gandhian Leader: a large area of Indian land. How can you buy or sell the sky? The warmth of the land? The idea is strange to us.

A good example how corporatocracy works.
9 June 2009 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

This documentary is a good example, of so many, how our monetary system really operates and its consequences it generates. How wealth gets transfered from the poor to the rich and how short term profit results in long term destruction. How a small group of rich people decide the faith and future of so many people in this world. This is also better known as corporatocracy. I would have liked to see more from the scientific side to support some of the arguments of the movie especially in terms of technology used right now and the total consequence of it. Also a bit more evidence in total would have given this documentary more momentum. But, I must say most of this movie is well researched and it speaks for itself. Points are very clear made.
