Our weekly documentary film curated by the editorial team at 21WIRE.
In 2008 the world experienced financial turmoil. Markets crashed, stocks plummeted, and financial institutions thought to be invincible, collapsed. Was the financial crisis solved or were the problems merely kicked down the road? Governments issued massive bailouts and stimulus packages in an effort to keep the world economy afloat. We’re told these drastic measures prevented a total collapse of our system, yet a growing sense of unease fills the population. Cracks have started to appear. What lies ahead as a result of these bold money-printing measures? The real problem was merely kicked down the road, setting the scene for a bigger more dramatic even in the future. Made in 2012, this impressive film shows exactly how the stage has already been set for the next bubble.
