This is the first of a 3 part series that attempts to address some of the frustrations people rightly or wrongly have with the current monetary system. The three movies are posted on here for completeness and to present a side of the story that has had growing interest since the financial crisis. The second movie focuses in on debt, and frustrations around the constraints that debt puts on our lives, despite the possibilities that it also creates; and even proffers thoughts on alternative systems.
Watch the rest of the series:
