“Convinced me economics is really not about economics…it’s about people”

 

Evening Standard

Terry Jones (Monty Python) mixes expert insight, animation, puppetry and song to explain economics to everyone. Why do crashes keep happening? Why are students taught crashes do not happen? Will we ever learn from our mistakes?

Co-written by Theo Kocken, entrepreneur and professor of risk management. With contributions from Nobel Prize winners Daniel Kahneman, Robert J. Shiller, Paul Krugman, journalists John Cassidy and Paul Mason, actor John Cusack and the rhesus monkeys of Puerto Rico.

WHY MAKE A FILM ABOUT ECONOMICS?

Terry Jones and Theo Kocken share a pint and discuss why the project happened in the first place.
