100 years after its creation, the power of the Federal Reserve has never been greater. In this documentary, current and former Fed officials, top economists, financial historians, famed investors and traders provide unprecedented access, taking viewers behind the curtain to debate the future of the world's most powerful financial institution. Digging beneath the surface of the 2008 crisis, the film asks why so many facets of our financial system seemed to self-destruct at the same time. For many economists and senior Fed officials, the answer is clear: the same Fed that put out 2008's raging financial fire actually helped light the match years before. As the global financial system continues to falter, the Federal Reserve finds itself at a crossroads. How can the Federal Reserve steer our nation toward a more sustainable path? How can the American people - who the Fed was created to serve - influence an institution whose inner workings they may not understand?
