Film and Panel Discussion to Examine Federal Reserve

Money for Nothing: Inside the Federal Reserve to be screened and discussed

Money for Nothing: Inside the Federal ReserveBethlehem, Pa., September 10, 2013 – The Department of Economics & Business at Moravian College will hold a special screening of the film, Money for Nothing: Inside the Federal Reserve, a feature-length documentary that examines the Federal Reserve and its policies. The film will be followed by a panel discussion led by Moravian College faculty members and alumni. The event will be held on Tuesday, September 17, with the film at 6:00 p.m., and the panel discussion beginning at 7:45 in Prosser Auditorium, Haupert Union Building. The public is welcome to attend and admission is free of charge.

Narrated by acclaimed actor Liev Schreiber, Money for Nothing is the first film to take viewers inside America’s central bank and reveal the impact of Fed policies. Current and former Fed officials, top economists, financial historians, famed investors and traders provide unprecedented access and take viewers behind the curtain to debate the future of the world’s most powerful financial institution. The key tenet underlying Money For Nothing is the belief that a more fully and accurately informed public will promote greater accountability and more effective policies from our central bank—no matter the conclusions any individual draws from the film.
