Social inequality is increasing across the globe. Financial markets are surging, while the earth's resources are becoming depleted. The rules of the contemporary capitalist game require exponential growth, systematic deficits and ever-larger concentrations of wealth – but why? In this entertaining and educational documentary, economists, bankers and CEOs attempt to explain the logic of modern capitalism – with varying degrees of success. OECONOMIA is a critical exploration of the irrational contradictions of our economic system.
