Let’s Make Money

Let’s make money shows us some intermediate stages of this money making journey, such as Switzerland, London and Jersey. Corporations and the rich benefit from these havens in order to save taxes. To date, government policies have not prevented this. Since the 70s these policies facilitated the flow of money and so laid the foundation for the boom of the global financial industry with its centers in London, New York or Frankfurt. It has always been all about the interests of the powerful few. The International Monetary Fund and the World Bank impose the privatization of retirement funds, power generators or cotton mills in many developing countries after their governments have been blackmailed due to high debt. This opens up new investment opportunities for our money. But this “sale” of social benefits such as health systems, pension plans, energy supplies and public transport does not only happen in the distant “third” world. We are all directly affected by it.
