Support Swags for Homeless

flattr this!

Swags for Home­less, the Aus­tralian entre­pre­neur­ial char­ity that has designed a bril­liant portable bed for home­less peo­ple, has entered a movie “Home” into the Focus Foward short film con­test.

The film is now a semi-finalist, and your vote can help it get to the Sun­dance Fes­ti­val, and pos­si­bly even win the $100,000 prize. Swags would use the expo­sure and the prize money to estab­lish oper­a­tions in the USA–a coun­try that has a des­per­ate need to make the life of its many home­less less miserable.

This is the movie, and if you click on the vote link you can do your bit to help an inno­v­a­tive Aus­tralian char­ity spread its wings to the USA and beyond.

About Steve Keen

I am a professional economist and a long time critic of conventional economic thought. As well as attacking mainstream thought in Debunking Economics, I am also developing an alternative dynamic approach to economic modelling. The key issue I am tackling here is the prospect for a debt-deflation on the back of the enormous debts accumulated in Australia, and our very low rate of inflation.

    If there is a hell, there is a spe­cial, cold and lonely cor­ner of it that is reserved for William Jef­fer­son Clin­ton, who declared vic­tory over unem­ploy­ment on the strength of his own per­sonal awe­some­ness and ended “wel­fare as we knew it”. Now count the kids and sin­gle moms crowd­ing into home­less shel­ters, and try to find the moral courage to look into the eyes of the ones who are turned away.

    The peo­ple in this video should get some kind of medal. The peo­ple in gov­ern­ment who per­pet­u­ate this depres­sion should get there own bridge to sleep under.
