Documentary Screening Night
Join WEFA for a documentary screening of The Chinese Bubble (2011). The film features interviews with Wang Jianlin, the richest real estate tycoon in China, who proclaims that economic prosperity is available to everyone in the country. The interviews are countered by scenes of Feng Lun, a construction worker who toils daily on the perilous scaffolding of Jianlin's tallest developments, but struggles to support his wife and children on a meager wage. Following the film will be a faculty-led discussion about income disparity, economic policy, and financial crises. (Faculty member TBD.) Refreshments will be served!
