This Funzing Experience:

A look into American adult science fiction sitcom -Rick & Morty The series follows the misadventures of cynical mad scientist Rick Sanchez and his fretful, easily influenced grandson Morty Smith, who split their time between domestic life and interdimensional adventures.*

You’re invited to a talk, given by Gilad Alper, an economist and former member of the Advisory Board of the Israeli Finance Minister.

The talk includes screening multiple clips from the show, using them to demonstrate Ricks views on economics and politics, and discussing how Rick's views relate to our world and the economic challenges we face.

Rick exhibits clear anarchistic tendencies but is also a surprisingly conservative businessman. Is there a contradiction or is Rick more consistent in his politics and economics than meets the eye?

Rick destroys the galactic government by changing the value of the central galactic currency. Does that make economic sense? And what does it have to do with the gas life form that Morty befriends?

The Jetsons, produced 57 years ago, delivered an optimistic economic vision for the future. A vision that relates, in a somewhat tragic fashion, to the reality Rick operates in. I will show how Rick sheds light on the economic and political issues of our world.

This talk will include screening multiple clips from the show.


Venue: Sink Pong

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm
