“Free market” advocates have tried to perpetuate three great economic myths, all of which have recently been exposed. Trickle-down economics does not work. Free markets do not automatically self-correct.  And perhaps most importantly, allowing income inequality to grow larger and larger is not only bad for a society’s morale, it inevitably leads to economic instability.  The ECONOMIC JUSTICE Bullfrog Community encourages public education on timely economic issues that affect us all: the recent credit bubble burst, the current global financial crisis, the influence of special-interest money in politics, our over-consumption "disease", and new ideas on measuring the success of the economy. Join in and speak up!

Host a screening today to find out what's at stake, and how you can help.
