Episode Notes

Welcome to Slate Money Goes to the Movies, a miniseries in which Felix Salmon, Anna Szymanski, and a different guest each week discuss popular business-themed movies.

This week, Felix and Anna are joined by the New York Times Magazine’s Taffy Brodesser-Akner to discuss the 1993 film Indecent Proposal, starring Demi Moore, Woody Harrelson, and Robert Redford. They get into topics like whether there can possibly be a feminist read of this film, the moral value of money, and why Taffy quotes this movie all the time in her professional life.
