Description

This film highlights the unprecedented power of the financial markets of the global economy and the threats they pose to democracy. Director Carole Poliquin visits squatters in Paris, families on welfare in Quebec, factory workers in Thailand, teachers in Ontario, fish processors in Senegal and debt-ridden Mexicans. Also interviewed are market speculators and fund managers who help dictate economies workdwide and yet, for the most part, remain indifferent to the consequences of their actions.
