“The current economic crisis is not a failure of capitalism, but a failure of culture. Generation Zero explores the cultural roots of the global financial meltdown – beginning with the narcissism of the 1960’s, spreading like a virus through the self-indulgent 90’s, and exploding across the world in the present economic cataclysm,” explains the Generation Zero website. “Generation Zero exposes the little told story of how the mindset of the baby boomers sowed the seeds of economic disaster that will be reaped by coming generations.” In fact, the real little told story has nothing to do with a particular generation. It has to do with a small number of global banksters who exploited a rigged financial system to engineer a series of financial bubbles designed to loot wealth, consolidate power, and destroy the economy.
