... is the guest speaker scheduled for the 138th meeting of the Karl Hess Club, to convene on December 19, 2005.


 

    Bob Weber on "The Economics of the Studio Systerm in the Film Industry."


This meeting will wrap our Year of Ayn Rand theme.  Bob will bring his considerable intellect and wide experience in and around the film industry to discuss the studio system, the demise of which has gone somewhat unlamented until recently. 

Bob will explain how the studio system developed, why it made economic sense, and why it was fair and equitable.


 

  About Bob Weber


Bob Weber is a longtime libertarian activist and native Californian.  He became hooked on activism after he was part of the crowd that filled Dodger Stadium to hear Barry Goldwater campaign for President in 1964 and call for making Social Security voluntary, selling off the TVA, and getting the government off the people's backs.  Bob was also at the Pauley Pavilion in 1969 when Black Panther Eldridge Cleaver called for "Black Power, White Power, and an end to Pig Power." Bob sees no contradiction in this.

Bob has held so many offices in the Libertarian Party that he's lost count.  He's served as Southern Vice Chair, Chair of L.A. County, on the State Executive Committee, and is currently serving on the Judicial Committee.  He's run for government office many times, and has a perfect record of never winning.

Bob graduated from UCLA in 1973 with a B.S. in chemistry.  He's worked in the film industry his entire adult life, and has been a film history buff throughout.
