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 »

User Reviews

 
Sure, stop slavery in the South, enslave the Third World instead
23 September 2012 | by esoterc_circleSee all my reviews

Some of the documentaries being made these days are so poignant - partly due no doubt to the easy availability of info through the internet - that I am being stunned repeatedly! This film states so many shocking facts in less than 2 hours it's almost too much to take in.

The sad thing is that most people in the west still have no idea what the U.S.-led World Bank and I.M.F. (and the corporations behind their decisions) are actually doing to poor Third World countries : the exploitation goes on as if we were still in the 1800's (witness the cotton-pickers in Africa) but now on a much, much larger scale.

If you want to know what is really going on in our age, WATCH this film.
