Schmatta: An Informative and Interesting Look at the U.S. Economy

HBO's documentary, "Schmatta: Rags to Riches to Rags" is an very informative and engaging look at the decline of New York City's garment industry.

If like me, you've never quite understood the intersection between the textile, fashion, clothing industries were and issues such as immigration and unions were to the development of our economy you will find this special pretty valuable. In that regard, the garment industry is a metaphor for the what has been happening in our country over the past 30 -40 years.

You owe it to yourself to watch!
