Do we live on a bubble? Is it possible for the heavily indebted American economy to collapse and take all of us down in a free fall with it? Have the days of the dollar been counted? Is it really unimaginable that we will see the time of the Great Depression repeating itself?
VPRO Backlight and Dutch national newspaper NRC Handelsblad present this ‘what if’ scenario. What if the dollar collapses? Fiction meets facts in this 24 hour scenario. At 9AM a Singapore trader is ordered to sell a large amount of dollars, which sends off the enormous downfall of the dollar. This film shows the results for the world economy every following hour. It ends in Amsterdam, where the only currency accepted by a taxi driver is cigarettes…
History seems to have caught up with this 2005 film, though in slow-motion…
Includes interview with analist Stephen Roach, Andy Xie, Maarten Schinkel, Cees Maas, Rob de Wijk and Kees Vendrik.

1 comment to Peter Russell: The Primacy of Consciousness

  • Another Peter – philosopher Peter Wilberg – anticipated and has clearly argued and articulated Peter Rusell’s arguments for the primacy consciousness for many years through his books and essays on ‘The Awareness Principle’ – see http://www.theawarenessprinciple.com

    Put quite simply this principle is that AWARENESS cannot – IN PRINCIPLE – reduced to or explained as the property or product of any thing or we are aware OF – whether a body, brain, being, ‘self’ or ‘mind’ any sort. On the contrary, awareness alone is the sole reality and all things are an individualised portion embodiment, personification of a singular universal awareness field. The conceptual rigour of Peter Wilberg for the primacy of consciousness – not consciousness ‘of’ this or that but consciousness as such – awareness remains unsurpassed.

    “Awareness is everything. Everything is an awareness.”
