11 December – 97% Owned

Manchester Film Co-op, in association with Positive Money, would like to invite you to a screening of 97% Owned, a new documentary that reveals how money is at the root of our current social and economic crisis.

Featuring frank interviews and commentary from economists, campaigners and former bankers, it exposes the privatised, debt-based monetary system that gives banks the power to create money, shape the economy, cause crises and push house prices out of reach.

Fact-based and clearly explained, in just 60 minutes it shows how the power to create money is the piece of the puzzle that economists were missing when they failed to predict the crisis.

Produced by Queuepolitely and featuring Ben Dyson of Positive Money, Josh Ryan-Collins of The New Economics Foundation, Ann Pettifor, the “HBOS Whistleblower” Paul Moore, Simon Dixon of Bank to the Future and Sargon Nissan and Nick Dearden from the Jubliee Debt Campaign, this is the first documentary to tackle this issue from a UK-perspective.

Time: Doors open at 7:30pm.

Admission: £3 waged, £2 unwaged/student.

Location: Kraak Gallery, Stevenson Square, Manchester.

Optional RSVP: Facebook and Meetup.

    Not the highest quality documentary in terms of visual style but a fascinating journey through the historical development of how the current global money system came into being.

  6. Hi all, just to let you know that the films official site is here http://97percentowned.com/ and you can obtain a copy of the DVD by crowdfunding here: http://kck.st/SMFgLF

    We have a follow up film due for release August 2013 based on Prof Richard Werners work and we are currently in Japan filming. Sign up to the newsletter to be kept in touch but that would answer any Central Bank questions.
