Princes of the Yen: Central Banks and the Transformation of the Economy (2014) (trailer)

3

"Only power that is hidden, is power that endures."

Central Banks are some of the most secretive and misunderstood institutions in the world.  What powers do they wield? Who’s interests do they serve? How do their actions affect our everyday lives?

Set in 20th Century Japan, the documentary explores the role and power of Central Banks, and how they can be used to change a country's economic, political and social structures.

A documentary based on a book by Professor Richard Werner.
