Economics of Good and Evil by Tomas Sedlacek

Does it pay to be good? Does economics trump ethics? 300 pages of Tomas Sedlacek’s bestseller are condensed into a theatre performance taking the audience on an exciting journey across economic thinking. In this experimental collage of movement, grotesque sketches and musical numbers viewers will see Gilgamesh, Epicuros and Adam Smith, and hear the words of Moses and contemporary philosophers. Sedlacek, named one of the "five hot minds in economics" by the Yale Economic Review, features as an actor and also as a provocative moderator of debate when the audience is engaged to co-define a new meaning for economics. The production is supported by the Czech-British Chamber of Commerce and Techo UK. A paid bar will be open for members of the audience at the venue after the performance.

Part of the Made in Prague 2011, Film & Literature Festival.
