Capitalism 101: Must-See Documentaries

The Corporation (Mark Achbar & Jennifer Abbott, 2003) – an eye-opening look at the global effects of corporate actions.


Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room (Alex Gibney, 2005) – American capitalism at its best. An inspiring story, but they got caught, so I guess they were just not smart enough.


Sicko (Michael Moore, 2007). The joys of America’s Health-Care system.


Bonus: a Wall-Street special –

American Psycho (Mary Harron, 2000) – Christian Bale lives the investment bankers dream.

  1. I don' t know about the first one, but the next ones cannot be called documentaries. Even Michael Moore does not quite present facts as facts – he makes a hotch-potch of them. Even then, I did love Sicko and most certainly, Capitalism a love story
