When money drives almost all activity on the planet, it’s essential that we understand it. Yet simple questions often get overlooked, questions like; where does money come from? Who creates it? Who decides how it gets used? And what does this mean for the millions of ordinary people who suffer when the monetary, and financial system, breaks down?
Political philosopher John Gray, commented, “We’re not moving to a world in which crises will never happen or will happen less and less. We are in a world in which they happen several times during a given human lifetime and I think that will continue to be the case.”
If you have decided that crisis as a result of the monetary system is not an event you want to keep revisiting in your life-time then this documentary will equip you with the knowledge you need, what you do with it is up to you.
The Royal Bank of Scotland was once a famous Scottish institution; a bank with a reputation for prudence.
But in October 2008, less than a decade after Fred Goodwin took over as chief executive, it came within hours of collapsing.
RBS later posted the biggest loss in UK corporate history – 24 billion pounds – which damaged the bank’s reputation for financial prudence and Scotland’s image as a global financial center.
Using previously un-broadcast footage of the bank’s top executives and interviews with bank insiders, this documentary tells the compelling story of a national catastrophe.
