If you happen to have two hours to spare and feel like you want to spend that time being informed, amazed and maybe even appalled, watch ‘The Secret of Oz‘, winner of the 2010 best documentary award. Here’s the desciption from IMDB.com:
“What’s going on with the world’s economy? Foreclosures are everywhere, unemployment is skyrocketing – and this may only be the beginning. Could it be that solutions to the world’s economic problems could have been embedded in the most beloved children’s story of all time, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz? The yellow brick road (the gold standard), the emerald city of Oz (greenback money), even Dorothy’s silver slippers (changed to ruby slippers for the movie version) were powerful symbols of author L. Frank Baum’s belief that the people – not the big banks – should control the quantity of a nation’s money.”
What are your opinions? I’d like to know! There will be a quiz at the end of the movie…just kidding…but you’ll want to pass this on!
