Film Screening: The Big Short – A Future Freedom Event


  • 30/08/2016
    18:30 - 20:30
We're sorry, but all tickets sales have ended because the event is expired.
The IEA is delighted to invite you to attend a ‘Future Freedom Film Screening’ aimed at under 30s.

The film will be: “The Big Short”

The Foundation for Economic Education (FEE) reviewed it saying:

“Such movies remind us how central economics is to the story of our lives. Economics is the theoretical template for understanding how human beings are faring in the struggle against poverty, insecurity, disease, and early death, which is why the subject is worthy of study by everyone…

“There’s another thing to love about The Big Short. It subtly turns short sellers — the pessimists who bet against ever-rising financial valuations — into heroes. It’s about time. They have been demonized since the New Deal as enemies of the people. This movie shows that they are people willing to stick their necks out based on a contrarian opinion, and thereby perform the valuable service of tempering exuberance when it is unwarranted.”

We will be serving drinks and popcorn on the night.

It is free to attend but the event is aimed at under 30s.
