Storyline

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

Biased, Inaccurate and Inconsistent
3 September 2017 | by johndimdbSee all my reviews

The documentary focuses on money, and how it's made, and the economic and social repurcussions of the process and how banks are exploiting this process for profit.

In fact, it seems the writers and even the people interviewed during this documentary have really no idea of how finance and the economy works... at all. Clearly the directors showed only one side of the story, so it is not without bias that they are getting their point across and luring viewers with the idea that it is all an evil and corrupt system. I'm not questioning whether or not the system is corrupt, or outdated in policies and processes, but the fact of the matter is that the information given in this documentary is incorrect about the money system.

Viewers, be advised to do your own research before considering this the de facto exposé of the money system.
