Comedian Russell Brand and filmmaker Michael Winterbottom (The Trip, 24 Hour Party People) collaborate with this documentary, tackling inequality and the growing gap between the rich and the poor. Starting with the genesis of todays economic policies, with the arrival of Milton Friedmans school of thought in Reagans leadership and Thatchers UK, the film explores how these policies have come to dominate the western world. The rich have got richer; where a CEO of a major British company used to earn 10 times the average wage of his workers, now they earn 200 times. According to Oxfam, the richest 80 people in the world own as much as the poorest 3.5 billion. "A funny, boisterous attack on the dishonesty and mediocrity of Britain's new plutocrat classes and the politicians who created them" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian.
