Let's Make Money 

Directed by Erwin Wagenhofer (Mongrel)

The cover for Austrian documentary Let's Make Money calls the film "a must-see primer for understanding the global financial crisis." That description's somewhat disingenuous; Let's Make Money bandies about poorly defined terms like "protectionism" and "private equity" too liberally to be considered an accessible intro. (Track down the Peabody-winning This American Life episode "The Giant Pool of Money" instead.) Then, ignore that lying cover and give Let's Make Money a chance. Director Erwin Wagenhofer accomplishes something amazing: Using inventive entry points and interviews, he gives an overdone doc subject (globalization's exploitative! The rich are getting richer!) new vigour. I'm cheesed right now!

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
