We would like to invite you to our Grenoble showing of Oliver Stone's old film, Wall Street, next Thursday evening on campus, before you rush off to the cinema to see the sequel, 23 years later: Wall Street Money Never Sleeps.

THE SHOWING OF OLIVER STONE’S 1987 AWARD-WILLING FILM:
To grasp the evolution of capitalist ideology during the past decades, we encourage CEIMSA readers to also see , Wall Street Money Never Sleeps. The expressions of "Social Darwinism" are becoming more palpable in the capitalist culture industry.

Also, to confirm how reality imitates art, readers are directed to the 3 very revealing sources of economic information below :
Dear Yulia (from Russia),
Chomsky writes on page 147 of "Hegemony or Survival" in the third paragraph: "The UN Development Program estimates ten million excess male deaths during the 1990s, approximate ly the toll of Stalin's purges sixty years earlier, if these figures are near accurate. [see footnote #4 below or his sources.]
The Chomsky sources for statistics on Russia are provided in footnote #4, on page 274 of "Hegemony or Survival" : UN Development Program cited by Duncan Green and Matthew Griffith, International Affairs 78, no. 1 (2002), and David Powell, Current History, October 2002.

Capitalism's Poverty Problem
The costs of capitalism and its recurrent crises can be tallied in multiple ways. Frequently used measures include the effects of unemployment, home foreclosures, cuts in wages and job benefits, insecurity of jobs and reductions in the services provided by governments at the federal, state and local levels. The costs tallied for the current crisis - now completing its third awful year - are so huge, diverse and lasting that no final or complete count will ever be possible. There are yet other ways of seeing and measuring the costs of capitalism.
