Video: State of the Economy [GOOD Magazine]

A rather dark and apocalyptic video/transparency from the folks over at GOOD Magazine.

Duration: 4min 7sec

But the search for alternatives, combined with environmental disruptions, is putting new pressures on other essentials like food. There are some things that are going well in the world. Right now, the economy is not one of them.

The doom and gloom music is “Genesis” by Justice.

A short history of black gold, from the ancient Persian army’s flaming oil-dipped arrows to today’s piercing pain at the pump.
