Independent America - Rising From Ruins

Independent America - Rising From Ruins
1:10:46 | 2009

Categories: Documentary, Politics

Rising from Ruins is set in the spring of 2008, three years after Katrina, finds many communities still lack basic local services such as grocery stores, gas stations and banks. Yet, government support and financial breaks for large chain stores—including tax-free land and buildings—have resulted in small, local businesses being forced to subsidize their competition through the assessment of higher property taxes. Compounding the struggle for the small outfits is decreased sales due to competition and an inability to compete with lower prices offered by the larger stores. This is the story of the frustrating, spirited battle of a people passionately dedicated to bringing their communities back to life in an enduring, sustainable way.
