This movie helps explain some of the shenanigans that is going on, fiat money, carbon trading, cap and trade, etc. I didn’t get it all but it is not trading in assets and it is definitely not equivalent to barter, sufficiency economy be damned. It is worth watching to get a feel of how we are being screwed by the 1%. Here is a clip on cap and trade for more info.
The movie can be found here in case it disappears from you-tube.
