Retired Chairman and CEO of BB&T John Allison and Free To Choose Network Executive Editor Johan Norberg will be hosting two free Crowdcast screenings of a new documentary, Corporate Welfare: Where’s the Outrage?, on September 22 and October 20, according to a press release.
The one-hour documentary features personal stories of the effect of cronyism, tax exemptions, subsidies, government regulations, and bailouts – all commonly used to help big business. Hosted by Norberg, the provocative documentary examines America’s system of farm subsidies, Tax Increment Financing (TIF), Big Oil subsidies, unfair government policies, and tax breaks.
Allison offers a perspective of the 2008 financial crash from the viewpoint of a banker caught in the middle. The program takes viewers across America to talk with individuals whose lives and livelihood have been directly affected by the outrages of corporate welfare.
The screening will be followed by a discussion and Q&A with John Allison, who is also Distinguished Professor of Practice, Wake Forest University and Retired President and CEO of The Cato Institute; and Johan Norberg, author, historian, and a Senior Fellow at Cato Institute.
Attendees must register through Crowdcast in order to reserve space.
