Overdose – The Next Financial Crisis

Unknown year Economics 2.35K Views 16 Comments
In times of crisis people seek strong leaders and simple solutions. But what happens when their solutions are identical to the mistakes that caused the very crisis? ‘Overdose’ is the story of the greatest economic crisis of our age, the one that awaits us. The documentary traces the origins of the financial crisis and explores the eerie similarities with today’s situation, where states like Greece, Iceland and even the U.S. seems to be in danger of collapsing.

Among those interviewed are experts who were mocked when they predicted the current crisis. Other interviewees include Nobel laureate Vernon Smith and former US Comptroller General David Walker (I.O.U.S.A). The film is shot in the U.S., Sweden and Germany and makes extensive use of music, archive footage and graphics.

    i beg to disagree with you however i do respect people's religious beliefs
    and i dont make fun of those who believe in what the bible says.
    i could go on about the way the old testament is a book about an angry nasty hateful god.
    i could go on about lots of terrible things written in the bible
    but i will just say
    live and let live
    peace to all those who search for truth

  • Well, it covers very very important issues.
    Pretty lame and shallow though, and completely unoriginal, the most wannabe-docu I've seen yet, lets make it a little bit like this, lets make it a little bit like that. 1/10. There is MUCH better documentarymakers out there covering these topics.

    Wow, that was foaming rabid attack. They needed a false flag not for Iraq, but any other place that they deem as being terrorists. Such as afghanistan, to protect the caspian pipeline.

    You may have watched a lot of documentaries, however watching them is one thing, having the mental capacity to understand them is, in your case, clearly another.

    Zeitgeist does a lot in opening a fool's mind to the reality of politics. However, it leads you into another ditch of darkness that you probably will never come out of, because now; you think that you are too smart. Religion is no joke; thats why there are several of them. If at all one's silly mind ever woke up and realized that Evolution is Physically; Chemically and Mathematically IMPOSSIBLE; then you have 2000 choices of religion; of which only one is the truth. Zeitgeist not only opens your eyes in only one political incident; but also makes sure that you will never know the absolute truth. It starts by criticizing the Bible based on 'facts' that don't even exist in the Bible; but are only a part of catholic belief. Their criticism of Christianity is only applicable to the Roman catholic system. To know the difference between common misconceptions and true Christianity; you will have to consider the fact that the Bible doesn't even mention in one place that sinners will suffer eternal torment in Hell. Such a doctrine is created by organised religions to captivate people. God is not a sadist; hence, it makes no sense that He would eternally torment you because you sinned for a time as short as your life. What is interpreted as hell, simply means eternal death, with no resurrection. That He has a right to do, since He didn't give you life so that you can do evil. Now please, educate yourselves beyond Zeitgeist lest you remain fools; even blinder that you could imagine.

  • Its all over control of the oil.

    Hey website people, I got a suggestion. Have a top 40 page with the most votes, when people click it it takes them to the forum folder where people can discuss it, no joining just filter via a graphic code.
    And please please date your documentaries so we can determine their relevance.
    . . . oh and great site, thanks!
