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 currently 11.5 trillion dollars of private wealth is held offshore, managed from offshore, and avoids tax from offshore.

Anyone with a bank account should see this film
3 November 2008 | by tngrnmnSee all my reviews

Wagenhofer has done it again. This one is better than all of Michael Moore's films combined because it leaves the audience feeling informed, but not manipulated. The prevailing thought after seeing this film is "what can I do to make it better?" This documentary combines interviews with key people directly involved in strong-arming governments, hiding the owners of trusts whose money has damaged millions of lives, enslaved people in India and Africa and supported laws that allow financial institutions (in London, for example) to operate unregulated in order to maximize profits for a few as they they destroy the lives of many, with outstanding camera work and very clever use of visual and auditory iconography throughout. Just watch it!
