Renegade economist Amanda McCloud has been stuck in her apartment for too long, marinating in her widely derided proposal for solving wealth inequality in America: modern-day concubinage. By which she means tier-two pansexual marriages between the rich and the rest of us. She can’t give her TED-rejected talk in a theater anymore, so she’s making a video, rife with excruciatingly awkward sex, social climbing and some well-known billionaires. Could her one-size-fits-all approach to one of the country’s most pressing and complicated problems be the answer no one is looking is for?

You can now view the digital production of The Ultimate Stimulus: Now More Than Ever via the Brick Theater's YouTube channel.
