He rebut un mail força interessant: “The Story of Broke”.

with 4 comments

Suposo que molts encara recordeu a Annie Leonard, si, aquella de la alaridora “Historia de las cosas”  (Story of Stuff). Doncs ara als que estem subscrits a la seva llista de correu hem rebut la seva darrera creació: “Story of Broke”.
Per si a algú li interessa, faig un copy-paste del mail.

Dear miki,

This morning we released our new movie,  The Story of Broke: Why There’s Still Plenty of Money to Build a Better Future.

If you’ve ever wondered why there’s money for bank bailouts but none for schools, or think it’s nuts to give tax breaks to oil companies swimming in record profits, this movie’s for you !

In just seven minutes, Annie busts the big lie that the United States – the wealthiest country in the world and a country in which the wealthiest among us are doing exceptionally well – is incapable of paying our bills, let alone investing in a more sustainable and fair economy.

The truth is, our country’s not broke! But we  are making some pretty dumb choices.

In the new movie, Annie lays out a common sense argument for shifting billions in government spending away from the ailing ‘dinosaur economy’ and  toward investments in the 21st Century green economy.

You know, the things we all want and almost every candidate promises us: great schools, a healthy environment, clean energy and good jobs.

Wresting our money away from the dinosaur economy and winning investments in a better, more sustainable future is going to require some serious citizen muscle.

That’s why we’re also launching a Community of Action  today to recruit tens of thousands of us to speak up for smart government investments – in renewable energy, safer materials, zero waste, and more. Once a month, we’ll throw our weight behind an important campaign, or visit our Representatives or even make a public art project. Then we’ll let you know what we accomplished together.

Sign up to participate right now.

People like you, all around the world, make our movies go. You spread them to the far reaches and everywhere in between, reaching millions. We know you’ll do the same with  The Story of Broke.

So please, watch the movie,  sign-up to make your voice heard and spread the news:  We’re Not Broke!
