Stating the obvious ad nauseum
1 March 2016 | by VortexVSee all my reviews

Corporations hardly pay any taxes by abuse of international tax laws and there are groups that are protesting this. These are facts that are exceedingly well known, and most agree that we should do something about it.

But what? How can we close these tax loopholes? What initiatives and bills are currently trying to fight this problem?

That's what I wanted to know. But the documentary doesn't explain it in the slightest. In fact, it doesn't really explain anything. It just shows some experts explaining that it is indeed bad. And shows over 20 interviews with students who say they were inspired by something on Facebook and decided to protest against big corporations. While surely the tax code is to blame.

I can honestly say I learned nothing from this documentary.
