Golden Rule: The Investment Theory of Politics (trailer)

Part 1   Part 2                                

"A most important project" - Noam Chomsky, Institute professor MIT "...a magnificent and entertaining introduction and elaboration upon an important way to understand the crisis in American democracy today" - Robert W. McChesney, University of Illinois prof. co-author, The Death and Life of American Journalism

"I like it a lot...[its] segments 'move' [and] are both appropriate to the themes and hold the viewer’s interest." -Thomas Ferguson, UMass professor

From the Director, Jonathan Shockley: This film is largely based on Thomas Ferguson's book Golden Rule: The Investment Theory of Politics. Many people appear in it, but it is based primarily on a 5 hour interview I conducted with Ferguson (with the help of 2 fellow youtubers), and on numerous appearances & interviews with Noam Chomsky. The film offers an in depth look at business influence on politics--analyzing social forces and events that the corporate media and mainstream scholarship has largely distorted or kept hidden. It also analyzes the meaning of democracy.
