 Featuring Chris Hedges and many others, the new film Capitalism Is the Crisis argues forcefully that the current financial crisis is not just a temporary glitch in capitalism, but is part of the way the system works.  Movie Moles Frann Michel and Jan Haaken lay out the film's argument.  But they also explain some of what the movie fails to explain about the history of capitalism and what it will take to end it.  The film can be viewed on line here.
