HEIST: Who Stole the American Dream (And How We Can Get It Back)
This film “traces the worldwide economic collapse to a 1971 secret memo entitled Attack on American Free Enterprise System. HEIST’s step-by-step detail exposes the systemic implementation of this memo by BOTH U.S. political parties culminating in the deregulation of industry, outsourcing of jobs and regressive taxation. HEIST provides viewers with a clear, concise and fact- based explanation of how we got into this mess, and what we need to do to restore our representative democracy.”
Following the viewing, audience members will have the opportunity to directly interact with the film’s director via SKYPE and participate in a larger panel discussion.
