Michael Moore – Capitalism: A Love Story

Watching CNN this morning I saw an interview with Michael Moore in his upcoming film: Capitalism: A love Story.

In it he attempts to describe some of the details of the financial crisis but also addresses deeper issues such as the relationship of wealth and power, the role of government interventions.  In the preview, President George W Bush defends capitalism as it allows people the freedom to choose where they work.  The movie provides a narrative on the growth of modern capitalism starting in the 1950’s and even has excerpts of Franklin D Roosevelt being labeled a socialist.

The movie opens on Oct. 2 in America; hopefully in the Netherlands not too much later.
