Next on: 30th April 2013, from 8pm
Venue: Mulberry Restaurant & Bar
9 Jalan Ampang (in the Ming Building Annexe, at the bottom of Bukit Nenas)
Its the 51st Green Drinks... but the very first to be in the middle of election fever!
And this month's topic couldn't be more relevant!
A screening of WHAT'S THE ECONOMY FOR, ANYWAY? - 'a humorous, edgy, factual, timely and highly-visual monologue about the economy today' by David Batker... an economist who worked for the World Bank and also for Greenpeace (not at the same time!)
This is a great time to think, re-think, and join in the conversation about the economy... as we prepare to 'job-interview' our next political leaders!
Here are a couple of reviews:
Monique Tilford, Your Money or Your Life - "What's the Economy for, Anyway? is the best documentary I have ever seen. I marvel at how the producers were able to take such a complicated subject and present it in such a compelling and funny way. Watch and be inspired"
Bill McKibben, visiting professor at Middlebury College, Author of Deep Economy and The End of Nature - "This is the news that everyone needs: you don't have to live in exactly the world you grew up in. What's the Economy for, Anyway? shows that there are other possibilities, and they're well worth considering. It's completely great!"

PS We'll be meeting at the usual place... Mulberry Restaurant & Bar at the bottom of Bukit Nenas... please check the map with the one on the main Green Drinks page and the one on the website above... Bing Maps can be a little misleadingWHO:

The last Tuesday of every month, from 8pm
Mulberry Restaurant & Bar, 9 Jalan Ampang (in the Ming Building Annexe, at the bottom of Bukit Nenas)
FREE! No fees. Buy your own drinks... or practice the art of persuassion on a friend!
HOW IT WORKS:
Step 1: Arrive and get a drink and/or food.
Step 2: Mingle.
Not sure how? The most common method is to randomly start listening in on whatever conversation is going on... eavesdropping and lurking are socially acceptable (and essential skills) at Green Drinks!
Green Drinkers are welcome to display cards, brochures, info sheets, posters, magazines, newsletters etc on the table... just remember to take whatever is left on the table away with you when you leave.
QUESTIONS, SUGGESTIONS and COMMENTS:
These are always welcome. Please email one of the organisers. Join our Facebook Group... start and participate in discussions there.
