I Love $
Johan van der Keuken , 1986
Thu, Nov 15, 2001 7 PM
In this lively report on the international circulation of capital, van der Keuken explores the impact of the global economy on individuals in their day-to-day lives. I Love $ jumps among the metropolitan hubs of the world economy--New York, Geneva, Hong Kong, and Amsterdam. Van der Keuken's approach is one of tact and precision, revealing the fundamental relationship between economic and moral well-being. His interviews with those at the top of socioeconomic ladder are intercut with portraits of those living at the bottom, giving a balanced look at the way capital flows through society, defining individual lives and cultural attitudes along the way. (145 mins.)
