Michael Hudson features in this 40 min documentary on the role property speculation and public finance had on this Great Recession. What role does economics itself have to blame for policy failure? More details.
REAL ESTATE 4 RAN$OM outlines a genuine alternative to the global property speculation that forced so many into debt.
Doubling the pressure, the tax game has become just that, with tax havens a favoured option for the wealthy.
The result – we are taxing the wrong things, causing more problems whilst bankrupting once proud economies. A systemic change is essential if we are to avoid these damaging boom-bust-bailouts.
Co-Directors – Gavin Emmanuel (foregroundmedia.com/) & Karl Fitzgerald.
Footage – much from the vimeo community 🙂
