    To separate the rich and poor, the have and have nots, and to stroke the egos of people who think having money is true success.

    How do you explain inflation then?

    Your other two questions are addressed, at least in part, by the second video I posted. Please check it out if you have the time.

    I have heard that before. But most people say that only the first movie has the bad research, because it attacks religions. I haven't heard much dispute for the second and third movies, which is what I am talking about.

    But I think the core of the economic model presented in the second and third movies is sound, if a bit naive. I encourage everyone to see at least the third movie and make up their own minds whether the alternative economic model presented makes sense.

    even scarier is the Zeitgeist 'Federal Bank' film. I dont really understand how the economy works, but this film is an eye opener. If you have time to watch the other parts, part 5 is scary...very very scary if it actually happens.

    YouTube - ‪Zeitgeist - The Movie- Federal Reserve (Part 5 of 5)‬‏ Part 5!!!

    I dont know if anyone could look at that world the same way after watching this film.
