Excellent documentary, 20 November 2011
Author: Leofwine_draca from United Kingdom

An extremely interesting look at the problems associated with capitalism in America. This documentary goes hand in hand with Michael Moore's CAPITALISM: A LOVE STORY, although there's more of an emphasis on helping the viewer to understand technicalities (whereas Moore focused on showing the human side of the story).

I came out of it with a better grasp of Wall Street, the real estate market, boom and bust and consumer society in general, which is no mean feat. The voice over narration is well judged, the graphs extremely useful and there are no dull bits. The use of old cartoons and film clips adds comedy to a documentary you wouldn't think of as amusing. Recommended.
