Our documentary film Why are We All in Debt? provides a 26 minute introduction to the crucial facts on money and banking that every layman should know. Using simple terminology and clear graphics, the film explains why the current financial system inevitably produces boom and bust, endemic inflation and unrepayable debt. Emphasising both Muslim and Christian viewpoints, the film is highly suited for use in inter-faith discussion groups, and as an educational tool for new students who are not satisfied with mainstream explanations of financial economics. The range of topics includes fractional reserve banking, the difficulties arising in an economy that is heavily reliant upon interest-based financing, religious attitudes to usury past and present, and alternative models of monetary management.
