Lamoureux Hall, University of Ottawa. room 339
Robert Reich, the Former Secretary of Labor of the United States, examines America’s fragile democracy and its fight for survival; as income and wealth go to the top, more Americans are left behind. Now it’s up to those ordinary Americans to change the rules. Robert Reich demystifies economics, busting popularized myths told to get people to buy into various policies; while sometimes it seems like an uphill battle, Robert Reich is uniquely trying to find a way to make the system work better for everyone- not just in monetary scales of the bottom line, but in real returns—a better life for everyone.
Cinema Academica hosts film screenings during the academic year at the University of Ottawa on various social, political and economic issues in order to increase social consciousness and encourage activism in the community.

Parking: There is limited metered parking on campus on Séraphin-Marion (the continuation of Wilbrod west of Cumberland) and in the adjacent lot east of Tabaret Hall, and also on Louis Pasteur, between MacDonald Hall and Gendron Hall. The meters are enforced 24/7. There is also a pay-and-display lot beside Simard Hall. The best bet is on nearby streets in Sandy Hill, e.g., Henderson, where there are signs for 2 or 3 hour parking up to 7:00 p.m., unrestricted after 7:00.
