5.0 out of 5 stars Facing Vital Challenges Through an Entertaining Journey, August 29, 2009
This review is from: The Ascent of Money: The Financial History of the World (DVD)
The many facets of this documentary weave together a coherent and powerful sense of vital information affecting the present and the future. Whether or not you are deeply involved with studying economic theory, public policy, history, or the future, many key features of these things permeate your life, and this DVD can entertainingly provide a mixture of insights, illustrations, and warnings to consider. Facts play a much larger role than speculation in this documentary, though the speculations seem plausible and add to the value of the overall effect. Scholars may find it productive to ask themselves how much they agree or disagree with the speculations and why... then in future decades revisit the video to compare these details with how things actually unfolded. This DVD's use of moving images that metaphorically relate to narration is often profoundly engaging, too.
