"There is nothing like a perfect economy"
The truth is: it's complicated. In fact, none of the issues regarding the economy now are a subject of black and white; it's not an either or; it's CONTROVERSIAL.

No one can say he or she knows how to achieve Utopia, because a perfect society is not anything close to wanting more, but better.

There's something about film that if produced genuinely your point can be deilvered and proven in an effective way to different audiences. Just think about "The Cove", or "The Inside Job" and their impact as soon as these where released; these opened people's eyes.

Like in every creative challenge, being adaptable is key so I cannot say that I am 100% certain of this topic but it's definetely one that inspires me: Ideas are already popping up and my vision is coming clearer, it's time to start digging into my research.
