Storyline

97% owned present serious research and verifiable evidence on our economic and financial system. This is the first documentary to tackle this issue from a UK-perspective and explains the inner workings of Central Banks and the Money creation process. When money drives almost all activity on the planet, it's essential that we understand it. Yet simple questions often get overlooked, questions like; where does money come from? Who creates it? Who decides how it gets used? And what does this mean for the millions of ordinary people who suffer when the monetary, and financial system, breaks down? Produced by Queuepolitely and featuring Ben Dyson of Positive Money, Josh Ryan-Collins of The New Economics Foundation, Ann Pettifor, the "HBOS Whistleblower" Paul Moore, Simon Dixon of Bank to the Future and Nick Dearden from the Jubliee Debt Campaign. Written by Mike Horwath

Excellent description of the problems with and solutions to the current financial system....
21 May 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

"The issue of monetary reform has historically been a very sensitive issue, because of the incredible power, wealth and privileges it bestows. In an age where analytical thought and a scientific approach are held in such high esteem, there is no justifiable argument for keeping the mechanisms and implications of the monetary process such a taboo subject.

As democratic citizens we have the right to demand a monetary system which is both stable and beneficial to society..."

Learn how the global financial institutions are just like terrorists, holding the public hostage with threats of economic collapse - how they're bailed out at the expense of the infrastructures we need to live as we're told that they are simply too big to fail.

This film describes how the banks can fail, and we can all have the financial security we need to confidently take out loans, buy houses and live freer, happier lives, neither as slaves to the banks or restrained by the fear of losing everything.
