Business

'Let's Make Money', the dark side of globalization

Video by FRANCE 24

Latest update : 2009-04-06

This edition's special guest is film director Erwin Wagenhofer. His film, 'Let's Make Money', provides a chilling description of the world we live in - a world where bankers and investors exploit developing countries for their own profits.

In this edition of Beyond business, we look at the ugly side of capitalism, and the responsibility of the free market.

Over the past few decades words like privatisation and de-regulation have become economic dogma. Trade barriers have crumbled, and trillions of dollars have washed around the world's financial system at a furious pace.

But now, in the wake of the financial crisis., more and more voices are starting to question the current state-of-play.

In this edition we will be talking to the Austrian film director Erwin Wagenhofer. He's the man behind a provocative account of global capitalism, a documentary called 'Let's Make Money'.

The film takes us from a gold mine in Africa, and the slums of India, to the financial and economic centres of the world, London, Singapore and Washington DC. 'Let's Make Money' provides a chilling account of the world we live in.
