Master of the Universe

.

Investment bankers are the real Masters of the Universe, not politicians, armies or even countries. In economic powerhouse Germany, a top banker gives a disturbing insider’s account of his emotions, motivations and predictions. The banking system disconnects bankers from the outside world, making self-reflection about their work impossible. This film reveals a parallel universe of extreme income and merciless pressure.
