Alt hvad du gerne vil vide om penge i en morsom og grundig film, der går til kilden og spørger kapitalisterne selv. De har svarene – nogle gange.

Uligheden vokser. Bankernes kriser bliver betalt af kunderne. Pengene stiger til tops, men jordens ressourcer er på vej i bund. Men hvorfor det er sådan, er en anden sag, og hvis man hører til dem, der synes, at økonomi er komplet uforståeligt, så er ‘Oeconomia’ lige sagen - og så er den oven i købet ret sjov! Med tysk grundighed og et stort overskud af humor og kreativitet føres vi ind i hjertet af en verden af glas og beton, hvor økonomer, bankfolk og CEOs med svingende held forsøger at forklare det kapitalistiske game. Det åbne spørgsmål er, om der overhovedet er et alternativ.

Everything you’d like to know about money in a funny and thorough film, which goes to the source and asks the capitalists themselves. They have all the answers – at least sometimes.

Inequality is growing. The crises of the banks are paid for by customers. Money is rising to the top, but the planet’s resources are being depleted. But why things are like this is another matter, and if you listen to the people who think that the economy is completely incomprehensible, then ‘Oeconomia’ is just the ticket – and on top of it all it’s quite funny! With German thoroughness and great amounts of humour and creativity, we are taken into the heart of a world of glass and concrete, where economists, bankers and CEOs with varying success try to explain the capitalist game. The director Carmen Losmann uses graphic animations to illustrate the ideas, and lets the camera roll in the interviews as even the people at the very top get confused with the terminology, as they try to explain where money comes from, where it is going, and why growth is the dominant paradigm of our times. The open question is whether there is an alternative any longer. We can already look forward to Losmann hopefully following up his new film with a sequel.
