The League of Women Voters of the Tanana Valley will be screening the movie "Who's Counting? : Marilyn Warning on Sex, Lies & Global Economics" on Tuesday, February 28th at 5:30pm. The screening will take place at the Blue Loon, 2999 Parks Highway. There will be a discussion on Waring’s Alternative Vision of Economic Theory following the movie.
"When Marilyn Waring was elected to the New Zealand parliament in 1975 she thought she might one day return to her first love, classical music. Instead, the 22-year-old Member of Parliament was re-elected three times and blazed a trail that eventually overturned her government on the nuclear issue and launched her as the foremost spokesperson for global feminist economics. Witty, irreverent and accomplished in what she calls "the art of the dumb question," Waring challenges the myths of economics, its elitist stance, and our tacit compliance with political agendas that masquerade as objective economic policy.""
