Boom Bust Boom

No video available - find out why

The economic crash of 2008 sent shockwaves around the globe, prompting many to question how experts failed to see it coming. However, this crash was not an isolated event: from the Tulip Mania of 1637 to the Wall Street crash of 1929, economic "boom and bust" cycles have been happening for centuries. Each has been fueled by uncontrolled speculation, a phenomenon that now seems almost intrinsic to human nature. Hosted by Monty Python's Terry Jones, the hour-long documentary BOOM BUST BOOM investigates the history of these events while looking for ways to avoid another global collapse in the future.
