DOC: "97% Ownedâ€ presents serious research and verifiable evidence on the true nature of the UKâ€™s economic and financial system. It uncovers and explains little-known aspects of the inner workings of the Western monetary system and its social implications on both a local and global level.
Few people can accurately answer the questions of where money comes from, who creates it and what implications its creation has. The debate around the creation of money remains highly charged, inaccurate and biased. Yet when money drives almost all activity on the planet, it is essential that we have accurate answers to these questions. The film features interviews with leading voices in the monetary reform movement, such as Ben Dyson of Positive Money, Josh Ryan-Collins of The New Economics Foundation, Ann Pettifor, Simon Dixon of Bank to the Future and Nick Dearden from the Jubliee Debt Campaign. â€œ97% Ownedâ€ explains why things are as they are, and how easy it would be to change things."
