Capitalism: A Love Story

On October 2, Michael Moore’s new movie Capitalism: A Love Story will be released.

Although I don’t agree with all of Mr. Moore’s political views, his last movie Sicko was an eye-opener and I couldn’t help but cringe at our flawed healthcare system.

As a victim of this recession, I will be sure to watch Capitalism. It is discouraging to live so close to the heart of the problem (Wall Street) and witness these executives continue to prey upon others’ money.

Do you plan on watching this movie?

  1. Jenny,

    I agree with you on the apprehension re: Michael Moore. But he definitely knows his audience, and how to reach them.

    I saw Sicko a few months ago, and I too was shocked to learn about the healthcare systems in other countries versus ours.

    To answer your question, I’ll probably see his new flick eventually, but I won’t go pay money to see it in the theater.

  2. Kelly:

    Capitalism isn’t a bad thing. In a free market, a business that is complacent about costs learns that its prices are too high when it sees lower-cost competitors winning over its customers. The market — actually, the consumer — holds businesses accountable and keeps them honest. No “public option” for healthcare is needed. And Michael Moore is a lunatic.

  3. I’m with you in every way — very mixed feelings on Michael Moore, but I loved Sicko and recommend it to everyone I know. Now it’s hard to hear the health-care debate without constantly flashing back to the things I learned in that movie….
