Description
Who would have thought that one of the best explanations of modern day capitalism would come from two women who grew up during the Great Depression? Armed with curious minds, common sense, and the audacity to ask straightforward questions, Shirley (90) and Hinda (84) set out on their scooters to journey across the USA from Seattle to Wall Street, aiming to figure out how we got into the current financial crisis and just how messed up our economy really is. With humor, heart, and a fair amount of friendly bickering, “Two Raging Grannies” follows their search for answers (in plain English!) as they meet every one from economists to homeless people to investment bankers, asking whether our current model of perpetual economic growth is sustainable.
