Who needs saving?
4 April 2018 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

I would think that the people in the system are the ones that need saving - but that is more or less what the maker of this is suggesting anyway. It's not about saving "money" or just generally the system. It's about how people suffer under the current system. Now you could argue that this is politically motivated, even propaganda. It's a fair point to make. The good thing is, you can make up your mind and maybe have a couple more view points on certain things that are happening in your economy.

It's interesting but it might not be the most thorough. It still is an interesting documentary and it does work as an insight look in what works or rather does not work at times. If it's an interesting subject to you, you will find something to hold onto and be excited about
