Plunder: The Crime of Our Time

Available on Prime Video, Tubi TV
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.
