Spent: Looking for Change (A Post-screening Discussion)

"Spent: Looking for Change" follows the stories of everyday Americans who earn, save, and spend money but don’t have access to some of the financial tools most take for granted. Turning to pawn shops, check cashing services, and using payday loans to meet basic financial needs can be costly for many of us, with $89 billion a year going to fees and interest using these types of alternative financial services. It’s time for change. New technology and new ideas can help make managing money simple and more affordable. Academy Award-winning filmmaker Davis Guggenheim is executive producer. How do we drive change and improve financial inclusion in the US? Underwritten by The Rockefeller Foundation.
