Debtocracy, a documentary about the responsibilities of the IMF and local politicians in the Greek crisis

Debtocracy is a documentary which focuses on the causes of the debt crisis in Greece. The film proposes alternative solutions to the policies of austerity usually required by the IMF for granting loans. The renegotiation of the external debts  in Ecuador by President Rafael Correa and in Argentina by Néstor Kirchner help the two countries to deal with decades of financial difficulties, and stagnation.
