Opening Day - Strategic Alternative Payback Plan

"Strategic Alternative Payback Plan" opened to rave reviews today. The show definitely started some debates around the building, with the purposeful creation of office ephemera a popular conversation starter. Here is more information about the show:

In a generous show of transparency, The Stanhope Centre for Transcendental Studies is pleased to release selected documents regarding our current activities and ongoing campaigns. The United States of America's historic levels of economic disparity coupled with massive insolvent banks being propped up by taxpayer dollars is fueling a populist anger across ideologies. The upper classes are nervous and need reassurance. In these troubled times, they need someone to turn to, someone to trust, to ensure that society doesn’t go into upheaval and the status quo is maintained. These documents will show (in a general sense) some of the multiple ways we will be working towards the goal of providing the elite class the security they need to survive. They may also show the potential outcomes of not making the necessary, but difficult, decisions.

You can hire a team of bodyguards for the rest of your life, or you can hire The Stanhope Centre for Transcendental Studies for a few years. This won't be easy, but we trust your judgement. Thank you.
