Product Description

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.

Four Horsemen doesn t get involved in banker bashing, criticising politicians or conspiracy theories. The film looks at the systems that we have chosen to live under and suggests ways we could change them. With events veering out of the control of democratic governments and the global economy on life support for the foreseeable future Four Horsemen is a catalyst to begin a debate around the solutions we urgently need.

5.0 out of 5 stars An agenda for hope. 16 Sep 2012
This film is such a thorough and well presented look at the current world situation and what to do about it that I have been fired up to talk about it and get it seen by as many people as I can. It is well balanced and well paced. The book is also excellent and fills in some of the holes. For example the film seems to imply that the returning to the gold standard would be a good thing but the book makes it plain that this is not what is being advocated.
Buy it, watch it, show it to your friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars This will change the way you see the world. 15 April 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I became interested in economics and politics after watching some documentaries, but I wanted to learn more. I wanted to know how the system actually works. This film does that and more. It informs you about the modern world we live in , how we have all been taken advantage of and how we could go about changing it. You don't have to know anything about economics or politics to understand this film, the facts are obvious; it is about power and money.
The film is set out in a very refreshing way, there are interviews with 23 world experts on finance and economics, and when any economic jargon arises there are intriguing animations to explain them clearly.
This film discusses how society has been distracted not to question the banks' practices, and compares the western empire to previous empires in history and how we are seeing the tell-tale signs for the beginning of the end.
The film doesn't just talk about "banking" as the problem to the economy and the people, but also how resources, "terrorism", the military/industry complex and so on, all link to together to serve the corporations and governments.
The most interesting part of this film for me personally, was the part on Fiat money; this is the way most currencies in the world works. It allows banks to generate money from thin air and then charge interest which has lead to the de-evaluation of money, which causes inflation and again expands the rich poor divide.
Honestly, I think this is one of the best documentaries I have watched. It is a great foundation to learn about the systems we have created and how they are now failing. Extremely informative, witty, engaging but frightening as well.
The DVD also contains extras such as the making of the film and interviews.
"Don't ask for change, Demand it."

I received a nice box with a precious DVD, precious in a sense of information inside this DVD.
I was and still am very happy with this DVD about the world paradigm shift.
But why on earth did they, the producers, not included any kind of subtitles within this DVD ?!
At least for educational purpose, it would have been essential.
For me, it was very hard to get all the lines... My mother tongue being French, I made all I could to understand it all at first time !
I have seen at least 5 times and I will see it again, but it would have been much more powerful with a clean and intelligible subtitle.
Concerning the info inside, well, they all repeat the same idea that the world is changing, even if we don't want to see it happening, so we better have to know it rather than being surprised...
But the most amazing idea is the cycle of empires during the ancient times...
I recommend it very strongly to all people looking for a real source of information, without any conspiracy behind !

I can't wait for another documentary coming from Ross Ashcroft.

Thank you !

5.0 out of 5 stars Four Horsemen is a must have DVD 15 Aug 2012
By tomhorn
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Four Horsemen is a truly marvelous film. It is so important that it should be shown immediately on mainstream TV. But it won't be. Four Horsemen contains information that the privately run banking industry and their politician puppets really really do not want you to know. You will learn from some eminent speakers how the multinationals and private banks, through lobbying and funding political campaigns, have bought politicians who, in turn, have created an economic system that benefits the rich at the expense of we the people. Unbeleivably, our politicians have agreed to decriminalised the activities of bankers and the latter have been released on an orgy of speculative greed, bringing the financial system to its knees. The politicians now expect us pay for it, explaining that there is no alternative. You will also learn how there is an outright banking fraud at the very heart of our economic system - fractional reserve lending. The latter is the ability of banks to create money out of thin air, lend out this fiat digital currency and charge us interest on it. FRL is a legallised fraud, a counterfeiting scam that has had devastating effects on the lives of ordinary people. There is much more in the Four Horsemen and everyone who wants to know how the world really works should have access to the knowledge contained in the film. You will not find this essential knowledge in the TV news or in the newspapers. Its a secret! The Four horsemen is 10.99 which, for some, in these days of unnecessary austerity, might be expensive. Here's how to get it for no extra expense, whilst at the same time striking back at the powers who have sought to keep you in darkness and debt slavery. Simply cancel your newspapers for a few weeks and use the money to get the Four Horsemen. This would be the savvy thing to do if you seek freedom and care about your own future and that of your children. Are you someone who is going to do the right thing?

1.0 out of 5 stars It was not a U.S. DVD for playing.
it couldn't be played in the U.S. so it went into the garbage.
