Money Wars

Director: Richard Houston and Dragana Kalezic.
The war has been brewing for over a hundred years, resulting in government corruption, loss of freedom and bank bailouts. Money Wars reveals the truth behind the real transformation of America. It explores what really caused the Global Financial Crisis and how the problem has not gone away. The Federal Reserve may lead to the ultimate financial destruction of the American Empire. Money Wars focuses on the massive Government Spending, government corruption and the increasing national debt that is fuelling consumers of America and building the Chinese Empire. Does the government takeover of General Motors mean the end of the free market? Why was Wall Street bailed out and Main Street left to suffer? How did US taxpayer money go to foreign banks? At the end of WWII America was the world’s producer until it started exporting factories and jobs overseas and thus begun the downfall of the American Empire. How has the government destroyed your freedom via refusal to abide by the US Constitution and the continued fear campaign started with 9-11 that unleashed attacks on the Constitutional rights of Americans. Why we will have a Depression and how world will continue on to financial Armageddon unless we do something. Above all MONEY WARS has the solutions!

Those looking for a house and property investors alike are exposed to a host of suggestions and views. Some feel anytime is good to buy property while ...

Rhode Island is one of the 11 — the only one in New England. We don't have a magic bullet to solve the problem, but we can make the Festival experience a bit less of ...

Ecofilms, the international film festival on ecology held each year on the sunny Greek island of Rhodes, was the echo of such an amazing experience as it screened in its non-competitive panorama section the astonishing documentary Homemade Money by A...

Private Fipresci winner at San Francisco

FIPRESCI Prize: PRIVATE (Saverio Costanzo, Italy, 2004)Jury Statement – Marcelo Janot, Henry Sheehan and Zlatko Vidackovic We found that PRIVATE combined creative ingenuity and passion in ways that would be unusual for a seasoned director, never mind for someone making a debut feature. Saverio Costanzo has created a dramatic situation that could easily have lent itself to sloganeering: A self-confident and educated Palestinian family suddenly finds its house occupied by an Israeli army platoon...
