This does not directly relate to this week's discussion, but I think it may be important to think about nonetheless. As we look at films that we may have already seen because they, for the most part, belong to pop culture, I ask myself what other forms of media I hear or see that relate to money or the economy. For example, a ton of the rap songs I hear have to do with money- Mo Money Mo Problems by Puff Daddy and Mace. Also what does that say about class, considering when you listen to so called wealthier music (classical...) how many times do you hear money? We could also look at the blues as an example of using the word money. Also we could look at how rap songs use money in relation to gender, J Lo's My Love Don't Cost a Thing. Or tv shows like Who Wants to Be a Millionare? Who wants to Marry a Millionare?
