“It’s Inside Job with bells on, and a frequently compelling thesis thanks to Ashcroft’s crack team of talking heads – economists, whistleblowers and Noam Chomsky, all talking with candour and clarity.”
- Total Film, on Four Horsemen
SEAD will be screening the ‘Four Horsemen’ documentary, Directed by Ross Ashcroft, 6.30pm 28th Jan’14
Most people these days are only too well aware that there are ever deepening problems in the way that the world operates these days where billions of people being condemned to poverty. Even just here in the UK we have food banks and abject poverty sitting alongside rich bankers and energy bosses being paid huge wages and million pound bonuses. So how did things get so bad, and what can be done about it?
The film explores these issues with the help of Nobel Prize winning economist Joseph Stiglitz and brilliant academic and campaigner Noam Chomsky and many other eminent global thinkers. It also helps you understand the fundamental flaws in the economic system which have brought our civilization to the brink of disaster. The film will be open to the public to attend after the AGM.
