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.
