The white stone building of the Federal reserve

About the Project

Nearly 100 years after its creation, the power of the Federal Reserve has never been greater. Its decisions determine the fates of enormous corporations in an instant, create trillions of dollars of government liabilities in the blink of an eye, and hold the stability of our society in the balance. And yet the average American knows very little about the most powerful financial institution on earth. "Money for Nothing" is the working title for an upcoming feature-length documentary film about the Federal Reserve System, the central bank of the United States. The goal of the film is to educate American and international audiences alike about the workings of the "Fed" (as it is commonly known) and to generate informed public debate about its policies over the past century and its role in determining the economic future of our nation.
