Senator Bernie Sanders and John Nichols – In Conversation with Angie Coiro
March 4 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$25 – $85
From the Event Organizers:
“Kepler’s could not be more thrilled to bring you Senator Bernie Sanders and The Nation’s National Affairs Correspondent John Nichols for a rousing discussion of Sanders’ new book, It’s OK To Be Angry About Capitalism. And why not be angry? Consider the following:
- “While inflation spirals, ‘major U.S. corporations are reporting record profits, as companies pass rising supply-chain costs onto consumers.’ — PBS NewsHour
- “U.S. corporations dodge $90 billion a year in income taxes by shifting profits to subsidiaries in tax havens — $2.1 trillion in profits offshore, untaxed in the U.S. — Americans for Tax Fairness
- “While households worldwide faced rising energy and goods prices, ‘Exxon Mobil saw record annual profits in 2022, bringing in $55.7 billion—more than doubling the energy giant’s $23 billion in profits in 2021.’ — USA Today
- “About one in three Americans are very or extremely concerned about their current financial situation. One in four said they’ve reduced savings or 401(k) contributions; 18% have delayed medical care; 22% have sold off their possessions to bring in more cash. — Savings.com
“Senator Sanders wants you to feel the anger — then do something about it. Should we just accept that three billionaires control more wealth than the bottom half of our society? How can we stop the super-rich from buying elections and politicians? How do we create a fair and just society?
“Join Bernie Sanders, John Nichols and Kepler’s own Angie Coiro for an urgent and inspirational conversation!”
SPECIAL NOTE: “Masks are required for everyone over the age of 2 years old and must be worn at all times in the venue, and throughout the duration of the event.”
