Nearly 100 years after its creation, the power of the U.S. Federal Reserve has never been greater. Markets and governments around the world hold their breath in anticipation of the Fed Chairman's every word. Yet the average person knows very little about the most powerful - and least understood - financial institution on earth. Narrated by Liev Schreiber, Money For Nothing is the first film to take viewers inside the Fed and reveal the impact of Fed policies - past, present, and future - on our lives. Join current and former Fed officials as they debate the critics, and each other, about the decisions that helped lead the global financial system to the brink of collapse in 2008. And why we might be headed there again.Written by
In the short segment about the 1910 private rail car trip of several important bankers, plus Senator Nelson Aldrich, from Hoboken, New Jersey to Jekyll Island, Georgia, two pieces of old black-and-white film footage of train travel are used to illustrate the trip, with one of those pieces showing curving tracks in a mountainous landscape. There are no curving tracks in a mountainous landscape on any normal rail route from Hoboken to Jekyll Island. See more »
The movie is long ( 100 minutes ) , boring , dis-ingenuous. The actual content is about 1/3 of the movie and the other 2/3 is filler material. Many concepts are repeated over and over until the eyes begin to glaze over. There are lots of emotive images that do not inform. There are lots of talking heads that add little to the movie. I found myself wondering if the producer was cynical and aware of the manipulation occurring. Or maybe the producer thought all the stuff included was *cool*. The movie has laser beam focus on the Federal Reserve and ignores all other factors. The movie contradicts itself. The movie is full of logical fallacies. ( Are they deliberate ? ) The best element of the movie is the remark that the *US currency* is the world's best brand name. 99guspuppet
