The new movie 'in time' is a total metaphor for our current monetary system. Its very simple to understand the writers intent. Time=Money. Everyone should see this movie. The basic premise of the movie is that currency is time, time spent to live and to buy goods and services. There is massive inflation in the fictional futuristic world, and massive divide between the rich and the poor. Time is scarce, and the majority of the population lives day by day searching for more time, while the rich plunder and steal time from the poor. Has anyone else seen this movie and what did you think?
