All happening at once

May 29, 2012

On the week when we finish shooting our latest film, we are also  promoting our most recent film and launching the website proper.

First, a huge thanks to those who gave their views on whether cannabis should be legalised over the weekend. The film focuses on an economic study that will add something new to the cannabis debate — but it wouldn’t be complete without breaking a rule cherished by many economists: getting out and actually talking to people. The film will be online in June.

Second, if you haven’t seen our most recent film, about a new initiative that targets the poorest of the poorest of the poor and proving to be a remarkable success, so much so that it has spread from Bangladesh to India, to Pakistan, to East and West Africa and even Haiti, then, what are you waiting for?

Third, welcome to the proper launch of the website. I will keep updating it with anything about how film is being used to share economic ideas. Keep checking back here or better still, follow us on Twitter.

THIS WEEK: Four Horsemen by the Renegade Economist, Ross Ashcroft, showing at the Frontline Club this Wednesday. Do say hello if you’re around.

Have a great week, Bob
