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. His new film, PLUNDER: THE CRIME OF OUR TIME, 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 including Paul Krugman, and even a convicted white-collar criminal, Sam Antar, who blows the whistle on these intentionally dishonest practices.
