在阿特兰大,行为科学家莎拉・布朗森研究僧帽猴,质疑进化过程引起我们倾向自私的说法,我们对不公制度所感到的忿怒是否深植于人类需互相合作的渴求中? 我们走访哥斯达黎加及冰岛,分析他们如何重组经济系统,建立更公平的制度,亦会看看美国的种族歧视如何打击民众对建立一个公义制度的希望。 我们由种姓歧视的印度村落走到对种族问题敏感的密苏里州弗格森市街头,探讨我们对公平的概念,寻求改变不公制度的方法。

    Money World 3 - The Price of Fairness

    Why do we accept huge levels of inequality and social injustice? This is one of the central questions that The Price of Fairness sets out to answer, beginning with a surprising set of social experiments in Norway, which suggest that our willingness to support systems of inequality is far greater than we are often prepared to admit.
    In Atlanta, from the perspective of a group of capuchin monkeys. Behavioural scientist Sarah Bronson’s work with the monkeys questions the idea that we have an evolutionary tendency towards selfish behaviour. Could it be that the outrage we feel towards systems of inequality have roots in our human need for cooperation? We visit Costa Rica and Iceland to see how whole economies have been engineered to function with greater ‘fairness’, and the US where systematic racial injustices have tested many of their citizens hopes for a fairer justice system. From the caste-biased villages of India to the race-sensitive streets of Ferguson, Missouri, this documentary explores our understanding of fairness and what it takes to change an unfair system.
    Touching on issues of economic, political, racial and gender inequality, this film offers a thought-provoking and timely look at what fairness really means to us?
