Heist: A Who Done It On The Economy? is a 28 minute documentary the establishment don’t want you and your friends to see before voting in the upcoming primaries/caucuses.

See how corporate overreach orchestrated the dismantling of middle-class prosperity through rampant deregulation, the outsourcing of jobs, tax policies favoring businesses and the wealthy and money in politics. The collapse of the U.S. economy was the result of conscious choices made over 35 years prior by a small group: corporate leaders and their elected allies, and the biggest lobbying interest in Washington, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. To these individuals, the collapse was not a catastrophe, but rather the planned outcome of their long, patient work.

Heist traces the 2008 worldwide economic collapse to the August, 1971 Powell Memo that called for a money-driven makeover of the U.S. government by big business through corporate control of the media, academia and the pulpit, arts/sciences and the destruction of organized labor and consumer protection groups.

“HEIST is outstanding, even gripping, as the film documents our slide towards a wealth-based nation, robbing working class families of our power, our voice, our dignity and our dreams. Watch it, treasure it, pass it on to every activist you know. It helps us feel the power of organizing when we Stand Up, and Fight Back!”  That is what Larry Cohen, past president of the Communication Workers of America wrote of the film.

The Powell Memo is the smoking gun of the class war dividing Americans today.
