Movie Info

Based on author and activist Greg Palast's book of the same name, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy takes a hard look at the role of business in the American justice system and alleges that many companies' motives are not only impure, but a detriment to society as a whole and a testament that the U.S. may not be as free a country as many believe. Among the companies profiled are Pfizer Pharmaceuticals, the Goliath drug company that Palast claims knowingly exported faulty drugs and medical equipment to third world countries, as well as DBT, which contributed largely to the infamous Florida felon's list that kept thousands of African-American voters away from the polls in the hotly contested state of Florida during the 2000 election.
