Four Horsemen – Feature Documentary – Official Version


RenegadeEconomist

Published on Sep 13, 2013

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

As we will never return to ‘business as usual’ 23 international thinkers, government advisors and Wall Street money-men break their silence and explain how to establish a moral and just society.

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.

“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

“Four Horsemen is a breathtakingly composed jeremiad against the folly of Neo-classical economics and the threats it represents to all we should hold dear.”
– Harold Crooks, The Corporation (Co-Director) Surviving Progress (Co-Director/Co-Writer)

When the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change releases a report, it’s safe to say it’s a pretty big deal. For the one released Monday, more than 1,271 people were nominated to partake in its writing, of which309 were chosen as lead authors, and 436 as contributing authors. Just to drive the point home a little further: 745 men and women from at least 73 different nationalities took part in writing the latest IPCC Fifth Assessment Report. It was an enormous, momentous effort in scientific consensus.

With that in mind, it is only more mind-boggling when the importance of this gargantuan undertaking is downplayed and misinterpreted, most generally by members of a conservative blogosphere who routinely seek to ignore the realities of climate science, nit-picking at inherently cautious scientific language for any sign that there may be some doubt; that maybe climate change isn’t so bad; that maybe we can keep extracting carbon reserves without atmospheric punishment.
