Summary Postulates that the economic crisis of 2009 really began in 1939... Film builds a conspiracy theory of how the auto, tire and oil industries united and pitched a willing American public on the idea of a future dependent on the motorcar. It reached a marketing peak at the 1939 New York World's Fair whose theme (from the General Motors exhibit) was the World of Tomorrow.
