Pleasant but not accurate
9 August 2019 | by spok1234See all my reviews

A documentary defending capitalism is welcomed. But this person is clearly confused about what USA capitalism is. He is a kind and sympathetic person but his arguments are incomplete (and in some cases wrong).

Socialism is not about keeping people unemployed and giving them benefits; it's about giving every citizen a chance by being healthy and educated. On the other hand capitalism in more effective in creating wealth but he fails to argue that properly because I think he deliberately avoids to mention the huge corporations of the USA.

I admire the Dalai Lama for not wishing to disappoint this man (although he does mention that they need the help of westerners) but I can only give 5 starts to this movie.
