Hello Stimulus supporters,

Intrigued and fascinated by her unconventional proposal, the FT's Alphaville blog posted an editorial by Amanda.

A big step, no doubt, in gaining popular acceptance for her plan. 

More on Stimulus in 2014!

Many thanks,

Felipe

Ultimate Stimulus in Frontier Psychiatrist

Comment

Hello,

Hope you're all enjoying what's left of the summer!

Just wanted to call your attention to a pretty fascinating meditation on the themes featured in The Ultimate Stimulus. It's posted on the blog Frontier Psychiatrist and is a heady, wide-ranging, and all-around excellent read.

We have big plans for Amanda in 2014. We'll keep you posted.

Many thanks,

Felipe


Update #7

Amanda McCloud Would Love to See You

Comment

Hi,

Just a reminder that The Ultimate Stimulus will be at Under St. Mark's Theater in NY's East Village for three nights: June 27 (11pm), June 28 (7pm) & June 30 (7pm).

Here's what a few very sharp critics thought from our Dixon Place shows:

"It's a very silly, and extremely powerful bit of theater, which is why it's brilliant," -- Tom McGeveran, co-editor, Capital New York.

"A seminal work of economic thought, from the fecund mind of Amanda McCloud" — Felix Salmon, Reuters’ finance blogger

“A wickedly funny satire”  — Will Kenton, culturalcapitol.com editor

Stimulus is a multi-media presentation delivered by Amanda McCloud, a renegade economist with a bold solution to fix America's growing income gap. Her big idea? Concubinage. 

Where: Under St. Mark's, 94 St. Mark's Place, between 1st Ave and Ave. A. 

When: Thursday, June 27 11PM  / Friday, June 28 7PM / Sunday, June 30 7PM

Running Time: 45 minutes

How much: $15 General, $12 Students Click here for tickets and search "The Ultimate Stimulus"

Ultimate Stimulus at Under St. Mark's Theater

Comment

Hello Funding Friends!

We're bringing The Ultimate Stimulus to Under St. Mark's Theater in NY's East Village late next week as part of the miniFRIDGE festival. Come! It'll be great! And there’s a bar there!

With every show, our avant garde economist gets smarter and more passionate about her life's work. Reuter's finance blogger Felix Salmon called Stimulus a "seminal work of economic thought, from the fecund mind of Amanda McCloud."

Here are the details:
