There were times when the economy was thriving and all indicators were turned upwards. But then finances crashed and reality hit in – the economy had been artificially inflated. While professionals argue whether the financial crisis runs in the form of V or in the form W or has become a line segment at the bottom of a graph, we are asking: “How could this have happened?!” We got some answers first-hand and present them in the film “To The Top And Back”. Featuring Albin Kordež, a financier, the former president of the board of technical merchandise concern, the manager of the year, a member of the Council of Bank of Slovenia, a master mind of managment buyout that went South, a “tycoon”, the convict residing at the semi-open department of Institution for Serving Sentence of Prison Dob – Slovenska vas.
