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?
