Warren Buffet Live Panel Discussion at Century 13
- When: Thursday, August 21, 2008, time TBA
- Where: Century Cinemas at Del Monte Center, Monterey
- Cost: Not available
- Age limit: Not available
A ticket to this film/panel discussion may be the wisest investment this week. First comes a screening of the documentary I.O.U.S.A., which explores the mounting fiscal problems undermining the U.S. economy and people's financial well-being. From the studio that made Super Size Me, it paints a picture, scarier than any of the Saw movies, through analysis and interviews so current that one scene features gas prices at $4.89. Think An Inconvenient Truth for the economy. After the screening comes a live-by-satellite panel discussion by giants of finance, including "The Oracle of Omaha" Warren Buffet, chairman of the CATO Institute William Niskanen, senior chairman of the Blackstone Group Pete Peterson, and former U.S. Comptroller General Dave Walker. They broadcast their 45-minute talk on the nation's economic health on 350 movie screens across the country and will take questions at www.iousathemovie.com. [WR]
