Watch the results of the last elections, then you can see how serious the director of this movie is taken in Argentina

I've just watched all 108 or so minutes of the twelve parts into which "Memoria del saqueo" was broken for posting on YouTube. I found it interesting and somewhat informative, though I'm not altogether in agreement with the maker's analysis of the causes of the collapse.
I do appreciate "Smartypants"'s having brought the film to my attention.

Could be an idea, but I'm more interested in solutions to economic problems than just to make videos about how føkked things are.

I choose to see it that Argentina is just ahead of the rest of the western world, about 7 years, since 2001 20. des.

Right now, as I type, bank runs are going on in the US http://mrmortgage.ml-implode.com/2008/07/14/physical-run-on-wamu-happening-this-minute/ and that will of cource influence Argentina as well, but Argentina is much more prepared to deal with things than US, at least mentally and since most people don't have so much to loose anymore, they wont feel so much difference anyway.

But most Americans will wake up to a very hard new reality when they understand that there is no more money in the bank... Prosac can only get you so far into lalaland....

Smartypants, thanks for clarifying the real purpose of the post,
i.e. another anti-anything American diatribe. I believe I remember
seeing a poll here stating that about 40% of Argentines believe that
the U.S. engineered the economic collapse back in 2001. I believe
that's at least in part the message of these video's. It seems people
here really like a good conspiracy theory. I've heard a couple recently
that are equally convincing that you may want to discuss in the future.1.
The U.S. plans to gain control and dominance in Latin American by
destroying the family structure. According to the speaker this evil
plan was outlined in a secret speech by Henry Kissinger. Why or how
the U.S. would accomplish this was not revealed. This plot was cited
as proof of the U.S. evil intentions in a sermon during mass I
attended about six months ago. 2. Last week while watching a
local news report the commentators stated that the video of Ingrid
Betancourts rescue may have been faked by the Americans. They went on
to state that everybody knows how good the Americans are at faking
video.Why the Americans would do this or what purpose would be served
wasn't mentioned.



If I can remember some more I'll pass them along. One could look at
this type of thinking here as part of the real problem in Argentina
(i.e. inability to accept or acknowledge the real problems facing
Argentina), or just look at it as continuing unintentional comic
relief.

What ever ;)

Seams to me that you're more into conspiracy things. I stick to economy and numbers.
