Speaking @ System Error 

Featuring absurdly honest interviews with leading academics, economic theorists and the world’s financial elite, System Error takes a deep-dive into the fundamentals of our global economy and asks, ‘How can we have infinite growth on a finite planet?’

If the system that fundamentally underpins our entire global economy is not sustainable, why are our politicians and global leaders so obsessed with it, and how, and when will we transition to a new world?

Featuring candid and confronting interviews with a range of fascinating characters, ranging from world-renowned academic and author of ‘Prosperity Without Growth,’ Tim Jackson, to ex-Trump staffer Anthony ‘The Mooch’ Scaramucci, who founded an alternative investments firm with 10 billion under management, System Error opens our eyes to the conflicts and contradictions of the economic logic which underpins our global civilization.
