This weeks film is The Prize. An 8 part series adapted from Daniel Yergin's Pultizer Prize winning Epic History of Global oil.

Contained within are dirty tricks, monopolies, Machiavellian business tactics, the break-up of Standard oil, wars, the CIA, coups and the general dictation of the oil economy. This exceptional PBS documentary is politically neutral and shows what happens when the world chases black gold. It's also a great study for any major sector corporate industry.

While privatization of the military, corruption and no-bid contracts has gone from the headlines, this post, Obama and Defense Spending got me wondering if any of it had been cleaned up?   According to the CBO and the New York Times the price tag has hit $100 billion dollars and just recently the DoD said it's budget is not sustainable.

Roger & Me

GM, along with Ford and Chrysler are now asking for $25 Billion dollars. We are hearing devastating reports of 3 million jobs lost, 4% decline in US GDP, in other words a tail spin cocktail for a bad economy, if GM or the US automakers were allowed to go into Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

 

With the Auto Bail Out theme, I thought it appropriate to show Michael Moore's famous documentary Roger & Me.

If you have not seen this it's a treat and if you have, notice some of the same similarities. Pets or Meat!
