This is just the trailer for episode one, but I think this 3 minutes should give you an idea of what this series is about and how important the information is to all of us.

That's quite interesting. It's sad but it's true. Big corporations are taking over smaller companies because they can not that it's the right thing to do. Instead of helping the smaller failing companies they take them over and push the workers out. There are so many greedy people on this planet that care nothing about their fellow man only themselves and what they can get for themselves. A lot of rich people waste their money. Some have the attitude it's mine I can do what I want with it which is true. But they would rather burn than use it for something good. Our economy in general is not going to get back on track until the wealthy people pay their share of taxes. They have their money in overseas account where they don't have to pay as much taxes. But yet they want to live in the United States. I think they should go live where their money is.

Who killed the economy?

Barney Frank and Chris Dodd get a heap of credit. Of course Clinton didn't help when he torpedoed Sarbanes Oxley.

How delightful!!!!! CATURDAY is extended over a holiday weekend. And, I have all the daylight hours to enjoy CATURDAY since I am celebrating the holiday by midnight moonlight skinny dipping in a national forest.

What could be more important than overcoming the addiction to money? On my profile, I have a video about learning to live without money, one of a series made by a small group with a very large revolutionary mind set.

Of course both courses of action (overcoming the addiction to money or learning to live without money), is impossibly hard right now. We might find that taking little steps makes bigger steps possible brings the goal within reach. For sure, no one can do the things that must be done to make a better world for all of us, except ourselves. If we do not make it happen, we have no one to blame but ourselves.

Have a great Memorial Day weekend, Miss Kitty. I appreciated your WALL comment in another thread, but I have already given you a green star this week.

It took a moment to remember what thread you meant Green Bee, but I do remember and actually with-held the full extent of my feelings on that one (THE WALL). I hope you have a delightful skinny dip in the soft moon light.

This series of 4 episodes are truly riveting, and for those who haven't the time or inclination to read the many books about the actual background for the Wall Street/Banking "collapse" then the series will offer you vast information.

JA H - I do agree it's a really sad mess out there, and only proper oversight and more stringent regulations will assist the long term recovery. It would be great if we tossed out all the corporations that hire primarily overseas and keep their money off-shore. They all made profits before and, still would show profits; just not the kind that destroy a society for the elevation of the few.

This video says it's for ABCTV for a series that will start Thursday, Nov. 5... guess that was a date in the past since it's not a date in 2012. Is this a series just on YouTube under the ABC logo? I'm confused. I'm so sick now of hearing about the idiot greedy bastards that I'm not sure I really want to hear it more, but I appreciate knowing that I can find some info here if I'm curious one day. I'll check out Bee's info, too. That sounds like a lesson we all should take or at least know about 'just in case!'

Caitlin, I watched the series on Wealth TV and they are offering the full series on their web-site. I am indeed fortunate to have access to Wealth TV a travel/history channel, along with PBS that's about all I watch. The news on Wealth is truly international in scope and covers US stories that will never make it to the select few on the primary channels.

It's worth the watch, though I can not promise it will not make you angry, just that even with the dozens of books I've read, this program series offered even more insight.

If one follows to the short links of part 2 and 3, the 3rd link that speaks of the decline of the Mayan civilization and others that outgrew themselves is very true. I'd like to think that we can learn from the past, that we have now the capacity to "think" ourselves out of this and move to a better way of doing things. It is to be seen I do suppose which path the worlds people will take, for if we allow only a few to control things, I'm afraid we are all in for more crashes and they only get harder.

Yes, great links, Ben.

Now, I feel like my dilly-dallying in the National Forest last night was observed and photographed from space. On another thread, Jim Computer Down pointed out that some words might even trigger surveillance from space and in two Care 2 threads I have used the sk phrase this weekend. What an unpleasant feeling.

I guess that nothing can be sublime when "It's Money That I Love" should be the national anthem.

I HATE money. Not profound but it might explain why I don't have much of it lol.

When something', in this case money, HAS BEEN MADE to be absolutely vital to a person'ts 'survival and well-being', and at the same time is subject to all the irrationality and insanity humans are capable of, you have an instant recipe for trouble and disaster.

There have always been those who have and those who have not. The real challenge for our societies moving forward is to find the balance, no human needs or gains by having vast amounts of wealth while others are starving, animals are being disregarded - we domesticated them we are responsible for them. We also owe an allegiance to one another. I don't need to agree with you to recognize that you have the same needs as all humans. For the species to thrive we must care for one another.
