The Take

Last night I saw The Take and was really impressed. I have to admit the documentary genre does not usually keep my attention.

One concept brought up in the movie is expropriation. The concept is simple, it is the right of workers to take ownership of the business after an owners mismanagement, neglect, and abandonment. The rationale is simple, after years of corporate welfare more investment and risks are taken by the workers than the owners of the company. Here is video from Venezuela on expropriation.
