Catastroika: privatization goes public

  • Aug 17, 2013 · 8:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

We're Greeks and we love drama. Greek drama is on the rise, having been re-adapted from the black-and-white intra-family relationship based satyres your Giagia used to watch, to a much broader scale: full-HD broadcasts of - and driven by - the recent state of the Greek economy. What - you thought that by now you'd heard and had enough about it? Kathe allo, file mou (quite the opposite, my friend) - there's more drama to be had, courtesy of the missionaries of capitalism! Let's watch a documentary that portrays future national economic horrors us Greeks have still yet to encounter, lest we somehow can draw humour from: Airport, anyone?

The creators of Debtocracy, a documentary with two million views broadcasted from Japan to Latin America, analyze the shifting of state assets to private hands.

They travel round the world gathering data on privatization in developed countries and search for clues on the day after Greece’'s massive privatization program.

Logistics: The date is certainly not set in stone - suggest an alternative if needs be. Also, the location is TBD for now - it will be assigned depending on how much interest is generated. Translation: RSVP!

    We aren't going to make it. Hope you all have fun. We would like to get together with you folks. It's quite a drive into Austin for us (we are out near Lockhart) and we are all exhausted from a long day of sun and water at a family birthday pool party.

      That's the creepiest storyline in the movie... But somehow still my favorite one. Colin Firth helps :-)

    I got the projector if you all want to roof top it.

      I have a soundbar I can bring. It's not big (maybe not that load either), as it usually attaches to monitor. Although if it is English subtitles, maybe sound not so important.

      Anthony, thanks, yes, that should help resolve my dilemma wrt building management's definition of 'amplification equipment' nicely. Perhaps we should discuss matching device inputs and outputs in a separate email
