The Masters of Money TV documentary series was produced by the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC). The documentary consists of 3 episodes, each 1 hour in length. The first episode premiered on September 17th, 2012. The second episode premiered on September 24th, 2012. The third and final episode premiered on October 1st, 2012.
The Masters of Money TV documentary series was presented by Stephanie Flanders, who was the BBC’s economics editor at the time, and Dominic Crossley-Holland, who served as the executive producer.
The series explores the lives of economists Englishman John Maynard Keynes, Austrian-born Friedrich Hayek, and German-born Karl Marx, how they have influenced modern economics, and exposed the awesome power of money. Although many people don’t know who they are, their theories have influenced decisions at the highest level.
The documentary not only considers the impact that these 3 intellectual giants had during their day but also makes the case that they have something special to tell us right now.
John Maynard Keynes is best known for Keynesian economics, and as an early pioneer of macroeconomics. Friedrich Hayek is part of the Austrian School of economics. Karl Marx is best known for communism and the theories that became known as Marxism.
The series also speculates as to how each economist, John Maynard Keynes, Friedrich Hayek, and Karl Marx, would have reacted to the 2007 – 2012 global economic crisis, and what each of the 3 economists may have proposed to resolve it.
So, just what happened to the global economy in 2008? Why did the world react the way it did? Did economic policies hurt or help? These are just some of the questions that BBC economics editor and narrator Stephanie Flanders asks in the Masters of Money TV documentary series.
