Rigged: The Injustice of Corporate Welfare

Rigged: The Injustice of Corporate Welfare

Rigged shows what happens when government funds some private businesses at the expense of others. This is the story of two furniture store owners in the city of Memphis who were forced by the government to fund their competitor through tax dollars when Ikea came to town. While the supposed benefits of corporate welfare (promised jobs, ribbon cuttings, etc) are always front and center when incentive deals take place, this documentary takes a look at the other side of the coin and shows the real victims of corporate welfare, small business owners and taxpayers.

I absolutely love this movie. I have seen it 2 times and every time I see it, I get goosebumps. I don't know why ,maybe is the narrative or the music.
