drawing upon the thinking and analyses of renowned intellectuals, this documentary sketches a portrait of neoliberal ideology and examines the various mechanisms used to impose its dictates throughout the world. these dogmas are gradually settling into our consciousness because they're being broadcast across a vast and pervasive network of propaganda. in fact, beginning with the founding in 1947 of the mont pèlerin society, neoliberal think tanks financed by multinational companies and big money have propagated neoliberal ideas in universities, in the media, and in governments. but behind the ideological smokescreen, behind the neat concepts of natural order and the harmony of interests in a free market, beyond the panacea of the "invisible hand," what is really going on?
