What would an economy built on principles of fairness and sustainability look like? How do we model it;; where is it emerging? How do we collectively strategize to fully implement it?

SPEAKERS
David McCarthy: From the mid-1990s to the present he has conducted intensive personal studies on economic issues in particular, and has developed a considerable body of original thought on the subject. His writings on economics can be found at the blog Trickle-In Economics.

Nick Kacher: is on the staff of the New Economics Institute and helps coordinate the BerkShares local currency. His work focuses on developing and implementing practical local programs informed by a theoretical understanding of the need to reform some of our most basic economic institutions such as currency, finance, land, and ownership.

YES MEN! – SUNDAY MOVIE MATINEE

March 14, 2012

YES MEN!
A FUN and LIGHT WAY TO LOOK AT OUR SERIOUSLY DYSFUNCTIONAL POLITICAL, SOCIAL & ECONOMIC SYSTEM
The Yes Men agree their way into the fortified compounds of commerce, ask questions, and then smuggle out the stories of their hijinks to provide a public glimpse at the behind-the-scenes world of business.
In other words, the Yes Men are team players… but they play for the opposing team.
After the film, there will be an open discussion on increasing our communities’ resilience.
