Cap Averill II
Wants and Needs is a documentary which attempts to explain the causes of recessions and depressions, and why they keep repeating. Over a six year time-span which began before the most recent recession, and continued through all of the governmental actions which happened before, during, and after the recession, Mantis and Moon proprietor Cap Averill II interviewed hundreds of people and scanned volumes of C-Span governmental footage to retell the story from a generational perspective. Is it possible that generational dynamics are in fact the cause of cyclical recessions and depressions? Historical precedents seem to suggest so. In addition to dwelling on the errors which our society has repeated for centuries, Wants and Needs also tries to provide potential ideas as solutions for future generations.
