The Last Cargo Cult | Show | 2009 Philadelphia Live Arts Festival :: Philadelphia City Paper:

It’s hard to be anti-materialistic in a culture that has such “fuckin’ awesome stuff,” notes veteran storyteller Mike Daisey in his new monologue about the meaning of money. In fact, American materialism is literally worshiped on at least one primitive South Pacific island that Daisey visited and describes with great humor during this 100-minute economics class/travelogue/sit-down comedy routine. The Last Cargo Cult is still definitely worth the money.
