THE CRASH COURSE: Part I
by Chris Martenson
The evening begins with a social hour and potluck supper at 6:00 pm. The film begins at 7:30 pm. A discussion follows the film.
This is Chris Martenson's famous “crash course” in economics -- a seminar he previously called "The End of Money." Chris Martenson is a hero of our times, doing more to upgrade our understanding of the present world crisis and our own hardships than a multitude of traditional theorists. His razor-sharp thinking is so focused and brilliant that he seems to make his points effortlessly. But the points he makes are not obvious; they have been buried in obscurity for ages. The Crash Course explains the consequences of having a monetary system that MUST GROW linked to an energy system that CAN'T GROW. Add to that peak depletion across the board of almost all resources due to exponential population growth and you end up with the ingredients that make quite an explosive American pie. Martenson begins his seminar stating his opinion that the next twenty years will be radically different from the past twenty years. If you are confused about what is really happening with today's economic crisis, and why everything appears to be crashing all at once, take Martenson's course by watching his film at Humanist Hall. His course is an excellent explanation of the flawed economic policies of the U.S., and all the more alarming for taking into account current environmental issues and modern demographics.
