Four Horsemen: Survival Manual

Authors Mark Braund & Ross Ashcroft introduce the accompanying book to the film Four Horsemen – The Survival Manual

There is an alternative, and we all have a role to play in creating a new and better world: one which we’ll be proud to leave to future generations.

This book is offered as a companion to that film. It explores the themes and ideas discussed in the film in greater detail. It unearths some startling truths about the way our economy has developed, how it is managed and in whose interests. It also makes grim predictions about the consequences of things continuing as they are. We won’t ever return to ‘business as usual’, but that knowledge offers hope for the future.

Like the film, this book is independently financed and produced. We haven’t had to choose our words carefully to avoid upsetting corporate masters. We have no obligations to anyone except ourselves, and to you. This means we have been able to deal with the truth as we see it.

As you will discover, that truth, and the world view on which it is based, is quite different from anything peddled by the mainstream media, politicians and most economists.

Progress will depend on our finally accepting the need to learn from the past, especially when it comes to the forces that have shaped the economic system.

Only when we properly understand that system can we begin to transform it for the common good.

The books sets out to explain the system in language that avoids the jargon of conventional economics, and suggest ways in which the economy could be reconfigured to enhance everyone’s liberty, wellbeing and experience of life.

You will have to judge for yourself whether two non-economists can write a book about the failure of the economic system.

But remember, everyone is an economist. If you’re running a household or a business, or are involved in any system where people and the planet interact, then you’re already running a small part of the economy. You are perfectly placed to play a crucial role in making the changes that urgently need to be made.

The case against income tax

After all, income tax was only ever meant to be a temporary measure.

Why a federal surplus will cost you money

People have been led to believe, wrongly, that their personal financial circumstances will improve when the federal budget is in surplus, but the opposite is true.
