Overall I thought the documentary was quite interesting and raised some interesting points. It also left a lot of unanswered questions. What should be done, or can be done to assist small countries? Is the IMF and it's loans and associated requirements the problem, or a symptom of a more fundamental problem? The subject of the documentary was Jamaica and I think Guatemala was also mentioned. I think a comparison with Costa Rica would have been very good and informative. Additionally, I think based on the comments of the author at the end, she was biased against the IMF and any other big organization which leads me to wonder how much of what was presented had valid counterpoints or opposing viewpoints that were not presented. Crime was mentioned as a problem, was there a problem with corruption as well?
