Episode 1 - Who Killed the Economy?
To start watching

Addicted to Money

Everything you need to know about what caused the financial meltdown, what lies ahead, and what we all need to do to survive in the new economy.

In his typically pugnacious style, Irish economist and commentator David McWilliams surveys the wreckage of the global economy and points to the worrying, but potentially transformative challenges ahead. It is both a story of shocking collective failure and a rallying call for change.

David travels the world, from Europe to Iceland to China, the US, Australia and Latin America surveying the wreckage that has been caused by the great meltdown. He discovers that this was a crisis that was avoidable, yet ironically necessary if we are to deal with the real challenge that lies just over the horizon: creating an economy that can sustain our society for the long term.
