Down-Size of the City and Laid-Off of Its Workers

If Rodger & Me still can only brought the slightest compassion and concern from audiences in America, let alone an outsider like me from China, then Michael Moore did a great job in The Big One made in 1998 which really drove home many issues regarding corporations, capitalism and even city dynamics.
