4th Annual CCPA-NS Fundraiser: An Evening with Laura Penny

Laura Penny speaks to guests attending the 4th Annual CCPA-NS Fundraiser (October 2011) and shares her thoughts on how expensive all this "austerity" is going to be. She focuses specifically on the implications of this agenda and on problems with education funding, the environment, and the effects of social disinvestment on kids.

Laura Penny is the best-selling author of Your Call Is Important to Us: The Truth About Bullshit and More Money Than Brains: Why School Sucks, College is Crap and Idiots Think They're Right. She has been described to be "as scathing as Michael Moore, as incisive as Naomi Klein."

Special thanks to Sobaz Benjamin for donating his time to film the event for us.
