Come hear from author, David Fleming, and multiple other leaders and panelists (like Chuck Collins, Peter Buffet, and Matthew Derr) about the kind of world we are inheriting, and how to live in it.

IN A TIME OF DISINTEGRATING CERTAINTIES, MANY OF US HAVE BIG QUESTIONS: “HOW SHOULD WE LIVE?” “WHAT WORK SHOULD WE DO?” “HOW CAN WE RESOURCE OURSELVES AND EACH OTHER?”  OUR ESTEEMED PANEL WILL DISCUSS THE IMPACT DAVID FLEMING’S WRITING HAS HAD ON THEM, AND HOW WE CAN USE THAT INSPIRATION IN ENGAGING WITH THE WIDER CONTEXT OF OUR TIMES.

Already a key influence on thinkers and activists in Europe, David Fleming’s entertaining vision of a post-growth economy built on the play, humor, rootedness and reciprocal obligations of a rich culture has long inspired optimism and action. Fleming’s work takes us back to bedrock, highlighting that “most of human history was bred, fed and watered by another sort of economy.  But the market has replaced, as far as possible, the social capital of reciprocal obligation, loyalties, culture and traditions with exchange, price and the impersonal principles of economics.”
