How Corporations Bought Our Democracy

This riveting documentary records the birth of the post World War economic order to the financial crisis of 2008 and draws striking comparisons between the fall of the Roman Empire and our time now.

The Roman empire ended in a period of decadence, when power and money was concentrated to the few. The Four Horseman shows how our global debt-based economy, rigged financial system and private control of resources signals the end of Empire and the end of Western civilisation.

This is not a Marxist or Socialist film but features former heads of the IMF and World Bank who explain clearly the systemic and rudimentary faults of our system of money and government.
