More than ever before, it has become clear that the markets affect us all. Produced by Erwin Wagenhofer ("We Feed the World") LET'S MAKE MONEY follows the trail of our money through the worldwide finance system.
What do our retirement savings have to do with the property blow-up in Spain? We don't have to buy a home there in order to be involved. As soon as we open an account, we're part of the worldwide finance market--whether we want to be or not. We customers have no idea where our debtors live and what they do to pay our interest fees. Most of us aren't even interested, because we like to follow the call of the banks to "Let your money work.'' But money can't work. Only people, animals or machines can work.
