The Big One is a documentary film directed by Michael Moore. In the film, Moore goes on a number of interviews with American Chief Executive Officers. During this time he asks them questions about how they run their companies. One of the main interviews shown in the film is that of Nike CEO Phil Knight. Moore interviews Knight about his labor practices. In this interview, Knight tells Moore that most Americans will refuse to work for only $3 per hour and therefore decided to outsource manufacturing of his companies’ products to other countries. Moore tells him that this practice will eliminate American jobs and cause economic hardship. However, Knight defends his practices and philosophy on using foreign labor. During the film Moore also criticizes the policies and agendas of the three presidential candidates of the 1996 election. He also accuses Bill Clinton of deceiving the public by not going along with the progressive economic policies that he promised. As a result of all this, Moore suggests that the United States needs to change itself so that economic conditions will be more favorable both in the short term and the long term. He then says that the United States should be named the Big One once it has changed.
