The Islamic Finance and Ethics Society is proud to host the ‘Four Horsemen’ film screening by the Renegade Economist, followed by a Q&A session with Director Ross Ashcroft.

8pm – 10:30pm
Four Horsemen is the debut feature from director Ross Ashcroft which reveals the fundamental flaws in the economic system which have brought our civilization to the brink of disaster. 23 leading thinkers –frustrated at the failure of their respective disciplines – break their silence to explain how the world really works.
It features: Joseph Stiglitz, former chief economist at the World Bank; Prof. Noam Chomsky, linguistic professor MIT; Tarek El Diwany, Islamic Finance expert; Ha-Joon Chang, Faculty of Economics, University of Cambridge and leading heterodox economist; Gillian Tett, US managing editor and assistant editor of the Financial Times; Kaiser Bengali, former head of the Social Policy and Development Center (SPDC), Karachi and Sustainable Development Policy Institute (SDPI), Islamabad; among many others.
The film pulls no punches in describing the consequences of continued inaction – but its message is one of hope. If more people can equip themselves with a better understanding of how the world really works, then the systems and structures that condemn billions to poverty or chronic insecurity can at last be overturned. Solutions to the multiple crises facing humanity have never been more urgent, but equally, the conditions for change have never been more favourable.
