New video via Rosemary-Anne Warrington: Who is dependant on welfare?

Here is some of the imagery I like that we can use, thanks to this new video from the Blum Center for development economics, a #globalpov production. (join the conversation on twitter)

- Two jars full of jelly beans (public spending and charity)
- Large university lecture hall for social change
- Global south map
- Roundtable discussion
- Grocery checkouts & food stamps
- Clinton signs law with screwdriver
- The Welfare Queen (Regan)
- Public housing as "Help to Buy" not skink estates
- Two-stream welfare state, and a divide
- Mountains and valleys
- Big fish small fish
- Champagne distribution in glasses
- A new social contract between government and the poor
- A citizen's income taking the poor above the poverty line
- Poor people demanding, roaring
- Linking thoughts on a scrabble board
Momma Welfare Roll a poem by Maya Angela

This builds on work from false economy and the CLASS think tank.  They argue that we can not win the public debate on austerity without strong imagery like the above, in our speeches, our writing, arguments, and demonstrations.
