Original Language(s): English
In Dept we Trust is the latest film from Danny Schechter, "The News Dissector", director of the award-winning hit WMD (Weapons of Mass Deception), an expose of the media's role in the Iraq War. The Emmy-winning former ABC News and CNN producer's new hard-hitting documentary investigates why so many Americans are being strangled by debt through the emergence of the phenomena known as 'Financialization, the debt-and-credit industrial complex." While many Americans may be "maxing out" on credit cards, there is a deeper story: all economic power around the world is shifting into fewer hands. This will lead to an unavoidable consumer debt meltdown. This predicts Schechter will have frightening consequences for us all.

"Have we got the movie for you. "IN DEBT WE TRUST" is a sort of economics lesson meets Supersize Me.... ...the facts Schechter

sprinkles throughout are mind-boggling...Come to think of it, Schechter has created about as sexy a film as possible on the topic of

consumer debt."
- Orlando Weekly
 

"... should be viewed by every single American"
- Mike Killian, CardRatings.com, August 25, 2006
 

"Extraordinary and timely"
- Carolyn Baker of Speaking Truth to Power, March 9, 2007

" 'In Debt We Trust' takes hard look at debt casualties..."

"Mr. Schechter is going after the financial services industry with guns blazing"
InvestmentNews.Com, August 7, 2006
 

"I... ask you and your campus to discuss this issue with students and faculty members. We need to encourage programs [like this one]

and encourage seminars or classes or resources about personal financial planning. I think it would be helpful if University Presidents

and campus leaders take on this problem with educational initiatives, film screenings and panel discussions offering diverse views."

MediaChannel is concerned with the political, cultural and social impacts of the media, large and small. MediaChannel exists to provide information and diverse perspectives and inspire debate, collaboration, action and citizen engagement.

More than ever before, we are living in a media age and a media world. Nine transnational conglomerates dominate the global media; multibillion-dollar deals are concentrating this power even further. Yet we are also experiencing a technological revolution that empowers independent media, worldwide communication and innovative media projects for everything from community development to political action.

In the current climate, we all need to be aware of how the media operate. Making sense of the steady stream of info-culture requires background, context and interpretation. The vitality of our political and cultural discourse relies on a free and diverse media that offers access to everybody. Journalists and media professionals, organizations and activists, scholars and citizens all need improved access to information, resources and opportunities to reach out and build connections. MediaChannel has been created to meet this need at the dawn of the new millennium.

Produced by Globalvision New Media, a project of The Global Center. Founded in 2000, MediaChannel is the first media and democracy supersite on the World Wide Web.
