the workings of the economy
This film is part of a series from the Zeitgeist movement. It's an invaluable look at how money really works. You could not go wrong watching any of their videos, most of which are online.
The knowledge about our collapsing world economy being a product of structural inequalities and outright fraud feels strangely liberating. The system was set up to only benefit one group of people — those at the top.
I mean, I know at heart that in a "normal" economy, my business would be thriving. I truly do not feel that personal mismanagement was the single cause of my being in poverty right now. My lack of business savvy was a contributing factor, but you can not sell when there are no customers who can buy.
