    $\begingroup$ How is it different from a book recommendation? $\endgroup$ – Thorst Dec 14 '15 at 12:08
  • $\begingroup$ The Commanding Heights: The Battle for the World Economy / 'traces the rise of free markets during the last century, as well as the process of globalization and presents a condemnation of the corruption and failure of centrally planned economies' ? $\endgroup$ – BCLC Dec 17 '15 at 2:13

  • $\begingroup$ @Lasse very. A book on/about economics can be (marginally, IMO) on topic, a book "based on" macroeconomics is not. $\endgroup$ – VicAche Dec 17 '15 at 10:21

Princes of the Yen is a documentary that springs to mind.

Nova's Trillion Dollar Bet episode (documentary)

The Big Short (fictionalized movie about true events)

Grapes of Wrath might be considered a fictional story about the macroeconomics of the great depression.

Wall Street might be considered a fictional story about the economic dislocations of the reforms of the US economy in the 1970s and 1980s and how these reforms raised productivity while increasing inequality and supporting a popular perception of amoral finance.

Inequality for All (2013) is a good movie, although it is focused more on labor economics.
