Going to see Four Horsemen (film) at Curzon Cinema

  • March 14, 2012 · 6:15 PM

This one is just for a bit of fun.

The economics agitators Renegade Economist have produced a film, Four Horsemen, which is showing at the Curzon Cinema on 14th March, along with a Q&A session with the Director.

Here's the blurb:

The modern day Four Horsemen are riding roughshod over the people who can least afford it. Crises are converging when governments, religion and mainstream economists have stalled. Rather than condemning bankers, politicians or the media, Four Horsemen puts the entire system up for discussion. 23 international thinkers look at how we can re-order the world and dramatically improve quality of life for billions. Director Ross Ashcroft will join us for a post-screening discussion.

Book your ticket here: http://www.curzoncinemas.com/events/details/1078/docdays-four-horsemen-qa-ross-ashcroft/ and then just turn up - we'll meet in the cafe/bar 30 minutes beforehand, at 5.45pm.

Look forward to seeing you then.

    If anyone hasn't seen it before, articles on the Renegade Economist website often make a good read: http://www.renegadeeconomist.com/

    Hum, I also missed you all :( I recommend the book "Kicking Away the Ladder: Development Strategy in Historical Perspective", from Ha-Joon Chang, one of the interviewee. He investigates the development process of some rich countries and argues that they didn't get there by adopting the Washington Consensus policies and therefore the developing countries shouldn't do it as well, nonetheless all kind of pressure for it. It has a bit to do with varieties of capitalism and so on.

    Enjoyed the film but it didn't quite go into as much detail as I would have liked. This review pretty much sums it up for me http://www.cine-vue.com/2012/03/film-review-four-horsemen.html

    Sorry, missed the pre-meetup. The film was brilliant and very well presented. I liked the wide variety of speakers. One of the interviewee in the film was John Perkins who wrote "Confessions of an Economic Hitman"
    Highly recommend the book as it gives a bit more insight how underdeveloped countries are roped into debt(...aid) that only benefit the provider of said aid...

    Unfortunately didn't get to meet any of you - arrived a little late.

    Enjoyed the film, what did anyone else think?

    Can anyone remember the title of the book that was recommended a couple of times?

    'Four Horsemen' was insightful about the current economic crisis, and its style was accessible. Hope it reaches the masses. (Sorry to have missed the pre-meetup at the bar)
