Plunder: The Crime of Our Time
In 2006, filmmaker Danny Schechter was denounced by some reviewers as an "alarmist" for his film, 'In Debt We Trust', which warned of a coming credit crisis. He was labeled a "doom and gloomer" until the economy melted down and vindicated his warnings. This film is a hard-hitting investigative film that shows how the financial crisis was built on a foundation of criminal activity.
To tell this story, Schechter speaks with bankers involved in these activities, respected economists, insider experts, top journalists and even a convicted white-collar criminal who blows the whistle on these intentionally dishonest practices.
Ultimately the film calls for a full investigation and structural reforms of financial institutions to insure accountability by the white-collar perpetrators who profited from the misery of their victims.
