We’ve resurrected this show because under COVID the rich have gotten so much richer, while the number of people barely making ends meet has hit absurd heights. Well, the tables are about to turn.
Renegade economist Amanda McCloud has been stuck at home, scheming. Ever since her proposal for solving wealth inequality in America—through modern-day concubinage—was rejected by TED, she’s been trying to get her message out. Now she’s made a video promoting her radical vision, rife with awkward sex and some very eligible billionaires.
Could McCloud’s approach to one of our country’s most urgent problems be the answer no one was looking for?

“A seminal work of economic thought.” — Felix Salmon, Reuters
“Absurd and hilarious, which, as good satire does, serves to illuminate just how difficult our economic problems are.”  — Heidi Moore, The Guardian
“If the joke’s on us, at least we leave smiling.” — Ed Cohen, Cincinnati Citybeat
