Money for Nothing a feature-length documentary about the Federal Reserve that seeks to unveil America’s central bank and its impact on our economy and our society. Digging beneath the surface of the 2008 crisis, Money for Nothing is the first film to ask why so many facets of our financial system seemed to self-destruct at the same time. For many economists and senior Fed officials, the answer is clear: the same Fed that put out 2008’s raging financial fire actually helped light the match years before. As the global financial system continues to falter, the Federal Reserve finds itself at a crossroads. Join us for a screening of this film as it attempts to answer important questions, including how can the Federal Reserve steer our nation toward a more sustainable path, and how can the American people influence an institution whose inner workings they may not understand?
