The Heist could have easily been made into a series that would delve in much more history and detailed analysis of what went wrong with the US economy in 2007 and 1929, so as to not just be mostly a documentary about America's frustrations with its aristocracy and its privatized and injurious monetary system, but to offer different solutions and ask daring 'what if' questions. What if usury is banned altogether by a Constitutional amendment and a one time 'jubilee' is engineered to annihilate all consumer and mortgage debt, for example. Thereafter we would conduct our economics with a stable currency such as gold and instead of the credit score we would espouse a savings score.

We could also bring our manufacturing back over time by insisting that every foreign-made product sold in the United States is properly labelled with an economic impact score. A EIS score of 0 would mean that outside of consumptive value the product brings no benefit to the US middle class economy and only benefits Walmart and their Chinese widget manufacturer. A score of 10 would mean that the product is of equal benefit to the US middle class economy, it's manufacturer, and their middlemen, whoever they may be. The rules of the market place would still apply and may the best product win, but we need a national consciousness about what we consume and how it affects our future. Every consumer product is also political. We should know who exactly is profiting from every product and by how much. We can have an efficient and productive economy minus an economic heist a minute.

Of note in the Heist is a short reference to Bill Clinton's role in the legalization of derivative financial instruments, the one blow that stands out among among all others as a presidential sign-off to a pillage larger than all other pillages throughout human civilization, combined. One has to ask, who did Bill Clinton think he was working for? If he had been a bus driver, and we were passengers on his bus, then he got paid to run us off a cliff. How much more corruption can we take?

Time for a major political revamp. No more ivory towers, no more usury.

It is put together almost like a simple textbook, showing all the links from A to Z. It should be required 'reading' in all households in the US. The rest of the world is already aware of what went on, because it affected them as well. Highly recommended as something to give your friends, relatives and even enemies.

Jam-packed with timely info about the U.S. financial system and our government's monetary policy in regard to citizens. The middle class has just about disappeared, and no plans are in place to make our country stronger. This is an important documentary for everyone who cares about U.S. citizens and the quality of life of generations to come.

This well thought out documentary reveals the strategies outlined in Powell's Memorandum, and enacted by Big Business interests and Billionaires over the last 40 years. If you love democracy, this is a MUST view.

This movie is a real eye opener. That all these guys got away with all that they did and they did not have any consequences. I've paid more in overdraft fees than the perps of this financial disaster ever had to pay in fines or penalties. I don't know what the statute of limitations are on bringing down a nation's economy and I hope these people are brought to justice, if not sooner, then later.

Great explanation of the repeal of Glass-Steagel Act signed by Bill Clinton and how Wall Street destroyed 60 years of economic stability in USA under W Bush.
