Short Trailer for our upcoming documentary feature "Princes of the Yen"
"Only power that is hidden, is power that endures."
Princes of the Yen is a feature documentary based on a book of the same name by Professor Richard Werner.
Set in 20th Century Japan, the documentary explores the role and power of Central Banks, and how they can be used to change a country's economic, political and social structures. This “structural change” has in recent decades become ever more prevalent, from the Latin American crises in the 1970’s and 1980’s, to the Asian crises and the present European debt crises, the mechanisms and aims are always the same, as are the claims of efficiency and progress. This documentary explains how such changes are engineered, and how Central Banks play a pivotal role in this process. The documentary makes the claim, that this “progress” is in fact merely an attempt to maintain the balance of global power. We are not so much working for our own personal gain, as we are working for the continuance of a global balance of power, whose dominant actors need no introduction. It is in this global struggle that central banks play a key role.
Almost all countries have adopted the economic rules of engagement engineered by the dominant players, and as emerging economies threaten the established balance of power, the dominant players become ever more ruthless, authoritarian and jingoistic. The Neoliberal and structural change agendas are an attempt to maintain the recent historic order, bypassing both democratic instituations and desires in favor of imperialist agenda. “Princes of the Yen” shows how this is achieved.
And below is the long version of the trailer.
