Comment by AS:Silly title because there is nothing secret about credit cards, merely not commonly known. The historical part about the law changes in the U.S. that made the credit card businesses possible are worth watching. The rest of the documentary resembles any random consumer education show that warns of the risks when using credit cards thoughtlessly. Of course, the evil practices of the banks receive considerable attention, too.
