Who shares the responsibility for the massive consumer debt owed -and the foreclosure crisis?

In this new documentary In Debt We Trust, Director Danny Schechter provides a spellbinding story -one that will forever alter your view of debt and the multi-billion dollar consumer debt industry.

"It is time to stop this squeeze and help people stay in their homes. We need debt relief in the form of a moratorium on foreclosures and an investigation into the government's failure to protect consumers and prosecute the predatory practices of major lenders.

The foreclosure crisis is a window into the larger credit and debt crisis that is squeezing millions of people, deepening economic inequality and illustrating the need for politicians to speak out and individuals to take a stand."

"Credit card companies can only make their billions in profit if we go into debt. It's a very simple concept, but they, as Schechter shows us, are masters at getting us to spend, spend, spend!" review at Buzzflash...
