Goofs

When John Christensen states "that currently 11.5 trillion Dollars of private wealth is held offshore", in the German subtitles this is translated as "11.5 Trillionen Dollar". This is way off: the (English) trillion is a million million, whereas a (German) Trillion is a billion billion. See more »

Quotes

John Christensen: It's estimated that for every dollar of aid that flows into Africa, at least 10 Dollars flows out, under the table.

Business, never personal

Frankly, I wasn't too hot about Wagenhofer's previous documentary "We Feed The World", which dealt with the food industry. Now, he's tackling the much harder to "photograph" financial system, and he pins it right down. Wagenhofer documents some egregious examples of the global financial system going haywire, and he nails down the right cases. Those gargantuan, deserted Spanish golf course castles will stay in your mind. So will the sheer, pharaonean poverty of cotton pickers and granite maimers (for a better word) in Burkina Faso.

Film is always thick on emotion, thin on information. This documentary offers a few mental stepping stones. Tomorrow I'm going to look up some of the points mentioned in this film. That's about all you can ask from a good documentary.
