    There’s a book called “The Bankers Who Sold the World” about some bankers who during the financial crisis sell the world cheap to some alien bankers!

      According to youtube, the video was “Uploaded by AlJazeeraEnglish on Sep 21, 2011″. There are 3 more episodes covering the financial collapse planned.So, I’d guess production took place within the last year.
