2015 – 2019

Starting a conversation about capitalism is like walking up to a stranger and asking, “Can I talk to you about Jesus?”

The word “capitalism” is a red flag. And for good reason because pretty soon someone will be talking at you about “The System” or aggressively confronting you about taxes. As a culture, we need the vision and boldness it takes to discuss the system itself.

Capitalism Works for Me! (True/False) engages people in a deceptively simple true or false vote. The large LED-lit scoreboard sign opens up discussions about the way capitalism affects us all, inspiring critical thinking and new ideas.
