MUST WATCH: South Border: A Great Oliver Stone documentary



An Oliver Stone documentary

The documentary examines the free-market economic policies of the U.S. and the International Monetary Fund, and how they have largely failed to alleviate Latin America's chronic income inequality. The film suggests that financial calamities such as the Argentine peso collapse of 2001, combined with Latin suspicions of U.S. drug-eradication efforts and resentment over the selling off of natural resources through multinational companies, have contributed to the rise of socialist and social-democratic leaders across the region.
According to the Associated Press, "Stone said he didn't see it necessary to present the opposition's case in his film."
I like the comment from a lady on why Chevez had won the election and so popular among the people....after staging a bloody coup six year before, sent to prison and beside total opposition by the entire media.
"We resent 40 years under criminals dressed up as politicians!"
