Four Horsemen - How the global economy really work

FOUR HORSEMEN is an award winning independent feature documentary which lifts the lid on how the world really works.

As the global economy continues to veer from crisis to catastrophe many more people are looking for wise counsel on how to reshape the Western Economy. Over the last three years 23 global thinkers many of whom have been marginalized -have come together to break their silence and explain how the world really works.

Their views transcend mainstream media and short-term political explanations to describe in simple terms what needs to be addressed in our universities, governments and corporate structures. We will not be returning to business as usual.

The lo-fi doc sheds light on the arcane information on economic practices. Illustrating its factors through simple however efficient diagrams, it proves precisely how easy it could be to comprehend how money functions and how scary it really is to discover that, apparently, 97 % of the amount of money on the planet is actually debt.

Featuring many first-time on camera interviews with leading Economist plus Nobel Memorial Prize winner Joseph Stiglitz, Brand new York’s Times bestselling writer of ‘Confessions of an Economic Hit-Man’, John Perkins a dozen financial specialists from the gold and silver coins industry and the Former Chief of Staff  to US Secretary of State, director Ross Ashcroft uncovers the systemic, legalised corruption associated with governments plus the bank operating system allowing the wealthy to get wealthier as the majority of the planet lives within abject poverty – still waiting for the ‘trickle down’ economics to pan out as promised us years ago.

Four Horsemen is a 2012 British documentary film directed by Ross Ashcroft. The film criticises the system of fractional reserve banking, debt-based economy and political lobbying by banks, which it regards as a serious threat to Western civilisation. It criticises the War on Terror, which it maintains is not fought to eliminate al-Qaeda and other militant organizations, but to create larger debt to the banks. As an alternative, the film promotes a return to classical economics and the gold standard. Among those interviewed are Joseph Stiglitz, former chief economist at the World Bank; Noam Chomsky, linguistics professor; John Perkins, author of Confessions of an Economic Hit Man; Herman Daly, economy professor and former economist at the World Bank; and Max Keiser, TV host and former trader. The film was released theatrically in the United Kingdom on 14 March 2012. A book based on the film has been published.

FOUR HORSEMEN is free from mainstream media propaganda — the film doesn’t bash bankers, criticise politicians or get involved in conspiracy theories. It ignites the debate about how to usher a new economic paradigm into the world which would dramatically improve the quality of life for billions.
