Privatization goes public
3 May 2012 | by See all my reviews

This documentary explains what happens in, widely considered, successful economies, when public goods like water, energy and public transport go private. It's targeted in the case of Greece but it can be also viewed as a general model. The cases are well documented and the documentary has a really good structure. It gets you deeply without even being boring.

This documentary can be viewed as a natural - as things evolve - follow-up to 'Debtocracy'.

I strongly believe that it's a "must see" for everyone interested in democracy.
