Exposing the forces responsible for the loss of trillions of dollars, 
millions of jobs, massive foreclosures and the disappearance of 
retirement funds, /*Plunder: The Crime of Our Time*/ investigates the 
unregulated fraud and theft that led to the market's collapse in fall 2008.

Filmmaker Danny Schechter explores the epidemic of subprime mortgages, 
predatory lending, insurance scams, and high-risk hedge funds that 
caused the collapse of the housing market and a full-scale economic 

Schechter speaks to a range of analysts and insiders about the origins 
of the crisis: bankers, respected economists, insider experts, top 
journalists and a convicted white-collar criminal, Sam Antar, who admits:

    /"The white collar criminal has no legal constraints; you subpoena
    documents, we destroy documents; you subpoena witnesses, we lie. So
    you are at a disadvantage when it comes to the white-collar
    criminal. In effect, we're economic predators"//

"/When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men, they create  
for themselves in the course of time a legal system that authorizes it 
and a moral code that glorifies it./"  ~Frederic Bastiat, 'The Law' (1850)

/"... our economy has crashed, brought down not just by greed but 
calculated schemes that flouted the intent of our laws, enriched a few 
and devastated the economy, leading to a massive loss of jobs, homes and 
personal wealth./" ~ Danny Schechter

"/This is the most expensive take-out, the biggest crime in world 
history; We're talking about a crime we can't even quantify; you're 
talking trillions of dollars - minimum/."  ~ Nomi Prins, Bears Stearns 
&  Goldman Sachs

/"It can fairly be said that the chain of catastrophic bets made over 
the past decade by a few hundred bankers may well turn out to be the 
greatest non-violent crime against humanity in history./" ~Graydon 
Carter, journalist

"America, they say love it or leave it; well, i loved it and it left 
me."  ~from My Country My Ass

*/T/*/*he School of the Americas (SOA) *is a combat training school for 
Latin American soldiers, located at Fort Benning, Georgia. In 2001 
renamed the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation 
(WHINSEC). //It was initially established in Panama in 1946 however it 
was expelled from Panama in 1984 under the terms of the //Panama Canal 
Treaty //(article iv) and reinforced under the //Treaty Concerning the 
Permanent Neutrality and Operation of the Panama Canal //(article v)./

/Former Panamanian President, Jorge Illueca, stated that the *School of 
the Americas was the “biggest base for destabilization in Latin 
America.”* *The SOA have left a trail of blood and suffering in every 
country where its graduates have returned. For this reason the School of 
the Americas has been historically dubbed the “School of Assassins”.*/)
