Subject: MINT Update - Thomas H. Greco to be Filmed at MINT Film Festival Screening - May 26th 2011 @ 6:30pm

Hello MINT Supporter,

Due to the great deal of interest in our May 26th screening, I thought I'd include a short write-up that you can forward to those you think would be interested in attending. This is a rare opportunity to meet one of the leading economic thinkers of our time: Thomas H. Greco.

I am thrilled Tom has agreed to come to Toronto to speak with us. And Tom's May 26th presentation will be filmed by award-winning Toronto Director Gregory Green. If you haven't had the opportunity to read Tom's books The End Of Money and The Future Of Civilization and Money: Understanding and Creating Alternatives to Legal Tender, MINT has copies of them available for purchase.

He will be in Toronto for 4 days (May 26 - May 29) for workshops (May 28th from 3:00 - 5:00 pm May 29th from 1:30 - 3:30 pm) and media appearances on the subject of alternative economic exchange systems.

For more information on the seminars and film festival, please email or check out our website at

I look forward to seeing you next Thursday, May 26! And don't forget to arrive early to hear the formidable talent of Toronto singer-songwriter Leh-Lo from 5:30 - 6:30pm. You can also get your book personally signed by Tom before the screening begins.

Synopsis for The Economics Of Happiness: This critically acclaimed documentary describes a world moving simultaneously in two opposing directions: governments and big businesses continuing to promote globalization and the consolidation of corporate power, while people around the world are resisting these policies. Citizens are demanding a re-regulation of trade and finance; and, far from the old institutions of power, they’re starting to forge a very different future. Communities are coming together to re-build
more human-scale, ecological economies based on a new paradigm – an economics of localization." (snip) ..
