Real Estate 4 Ransom: Why Does Land Cost the Earth? (2012) (trailer)

11

REAL ESTATE 4 RAN$OM outlines a genuine alternative to the global property speculation that forced so many into debt. Doubling the pressure, the tax game has become just that, with tax havens a favoured option for the wealthy. The result - we are taxing the wrong things, causing more problems whilst bankrupting once proud economies.

Fast edits and funky music help to lift the world of economics above the dreary doziness that has put the people off understanding how monopoly capitalism has taken over. Solutions are a core part to the film that hints at the need to look deeper than banking reform alone.

Professor MIchael Hudson, Alanna Hartzok and Frank de Jong feature. Music by the KLF, Kaki King, Monkey Marc and Los Codos. Thanks to the vimeo community - long live the creative commons ;)

Watch Real Estate 4 Ransom so we can occupy the middle ground, calling neo-liberals for the free ride they have masqueraded in a world of mobile capital. Who made the earth for private profit?
