Too Big to Fail - in der Filmreihe: Wall Street and the American Economy
"I don't care too much for money, money can't buy me love" (The Beatles). Wall Street is a symbol and myth for big money, success and political power. At the same time it constitutes a trust and failure system in the lives of millions of Americans who trusted Wall Street managers and lost life savings. This semester's film series explores power structures and ideologies of class, race, and gender as fostered by the economic system as well as the topic of financial and social crisis as a whole.
