What do people say about capitalism in Times Square? (daily 1 of 5)

On September 20 I installed a 20ft wide by 9ft scoreboard that says "Capitalism Works for Me!" in Times Square and passers by could vote true or false.

We are releasing clips from each day the sign is in Times Square. A longer, more polished video will come later, but these are a few snippets collected the first day.

The sign will be back in Times Square on October 6,7,8, and 9 as part of the Crossing the Line Festival and Times Square Arts.

There is also a talk on October 2nd with economist Richard Wolff and psychotherapist Harriet Fraad at the AMC theater on 42nd Street. RSVP on eventbrite:
