One of the most controversial and influential figures in world politics, he takes us on an insider's view of the seminal events of the 20th Century.

Dirty Gold War

A fable about the gold industry, an excursion behind the scenes of this very prosperous sector. On one end of the spectrum, there are the sparkling displays in jewelry shop windows and the luxury industry itself, on the other end there is the condition of those damned by dirty gold, from the Indians to the activists who fight against this murky cartel. A film that transforms the viewer's perspective about this business and makes a contribution to the necessary discussion in favour of more ethically responsible gold.

Boom Bust Boom

Shiller, and Paul Krugman, the film presents a unique look at why economic crashes happen. "Boom Bust Boom" is a multimedia documentary combining live action with animation and puppetry to explain economics to everyone.

Poverty, Inc.

The film "Poverty, Inc." presents a fascinating analysis of how the over-reliance on aid charities inhibits real local economic growth in the developing world (Haiti, Ghana, Rwanda), and how NGOs profit from the "global poverty industry," creating a new type of economic colonialism.
