Money from Cabaret (1972)
I find that the analogy to Germany during those last waning days of the Weimar Republic to work on many levels, maybe it's just me. However, it's clear that money IS the number one topic on everyone's minds, given that Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson is appearing on just about every morning show, save CNN. Sad that no one will have the gumption or journalistic integrity to ask Paulson exactly what he'll do to avoid this situation again.
