* So how do people under 25 live in this world? I mean I get children living off of their parents time, but what about teenagers? What about Orphans? Do you have to wait until your're 25 until your allowed to buy anything?

* How does the time distribution system work in the first place? What made people immortal? Is it supernatural? Is it a device? Is it a mutation?

** Based on maps in the movie Dayton and New Greenwich are on the West Coast of the United States, the Los Angeles area to be exact. Weis is the administrator for Global Time Zone 16 (out of 24), what we would call GMT -8.

* Why are they robbing banks for time? Why bother taking it from anyone else either? Why not just hack one of those "time capsule/cell boxes" to give a person's clock, ''unlimited time''? It's a digital device, not organic, so they should be able to manulipate it.

** Don't think too much about it and just leave it at that. Not everything needs to be explained in most of the fictional worlds.

** You completely missed the point of the film. The system has almost nothing to do with economics; it's purely about control. The exchange rates serve no purpose but to maintain that control by serving as a mechanism that ensures that the working class is always living on the edge and can therefore be compelled to labor by the upper classes (who control the mechanisms that produce time.) To the extent that it's an economy at all, it's a pure command economy using a fiat currency that they've incidentally decided to charge everyone a flat fee from simply to stay alive.

** Additionally, it's not necessarily safe to assume that the stated reasons for the system are the actual reasons; it could simply be a way to maintain absolute power over people's lives, with population control as an excuse.

** Will's something of an oddity, being crazy enough to take risks that others won't. The Timekeepers don't have to all be badasses. They have both numbers and guns.

**** You know those Minutemen? The authorities tend to look the other way as long as they don't do anything to disrupt the system too much. It would be really easy for the banks to let it be known off the record that people who don't repay their loans will be a target for the Minutemen. Have the Minutemen drain one defaulter, and the rest will fall in line. Maybe target their families if just killing the defaulters doesn't send the message.
