ECONOMICS FOR REAL PEOPLE: ‘The Commanding Heights’

Here’s what’s happening tonight, courtesy of our friends at the Uni Econ Group:

Hi all,

In tonight’s seminar,  The University Economics Group presents the film, “The Commanding Heights.”  A sweeping political and economic history of the 20th century, it portrays the battle across the century between freedom and control--and how globalisation and free trade came out on top.

We will see the power of ideas, specifically economic ideas, and how they have transformed the world for both better and worse.

   Date: Tuesday 28 June (tonight)
    Time: 6pm
   Room: University of Auckland Business School, Owen G Glenn Building, Room 260-325

Look forward to seeing you there.

On which planet, precisely?

Not the US, not the EU, not NZ or Aus, perhaps a little in China and SE Asia

but the winner was and remain socialism

no question.

Which concisely explains the mess the socialist financial system is in now! It is absolutely no accident that Russia and China - two countries that in different ways have completely rid themselves of socialism are booming, while the socialist "West" (including the US under Obama) is collapsing.
