Both a call to action and a comic account, “Boom Bust Boom” investigates the worldwide economic crash of 2008, and how we can avoid another global collapse in the future. Through several analyses of the direct link between the unstable financial system and our reliance on mainstream economics, the film – narrated by Monty Python alum Terry Jones – sheds light on the mistakes some politicians and central bankers would like us to forget.
