        How is Jurassic Park A Commentary on Capitalism? | PBS Idea Channel

        It doesn't matter if it was intended or not: the film Jurassic Park (as does its source book) accurately illustrates investment and risk, money as motivation, negligent management of capital, and profit as the ultimate end goal.

Watch the episode to find out more, and tell us what you think!
