Summary In the final episode of Addicted To Money, David McWilliams argues that the convulsions of the financial crisis are small compared to the imminent threats ahead. We are facing severe shortages of the key resources that fuel the global economy and make our civilisation possible: oil, water and food. Ultimately, these are all energy issues, and until the energy dilemma is seriously addressed, there can be little optimism for sustainable long-term growth. We have reached what influential Australian ecologist Paul Gilding calls the 'Great Disruption', the moment where our old economic model can no longer be sustained.PRODUCTION DETAILS:An Electric Pictures production, produced in association with ABC TV, RTE Ireland, S4C UK with the assistance of Screen Australia, Screen West and Lotterywest.
