Award winning filmmaker William Lewis Films has produced a documentary of tremendous importance for all Americans. Life On the Edge of a Bubble is a timely exposé that illuminates the unstable history of the American financial system. Beginning with our first Secretary of the Treasury, Alexander Hamilton, this thought provoking film leads its viewer through the perpetual cycle of booms and busts that threatens the American Dream. A provocative and often humorous adventure, the film challenges conventional wisdom about the causes of the current crisis and leads the debate about solutions. Written by Debbie Lewis See less
