The global financial system has failed us in its promise, resulting in an environment and society in crisis.  A movement for a new economics, one that supports people and the planet, is emerging as an inevitable response.

The Thirtieth Annual E. F. Schumacher Lectures will introduce three leading voices for a New Economics:

Gus Speth, prominent environmentalist who has been at the forefront of rethinking the connection between health of the environment and the nature of our economic system;

Neva Goodwin, pioneer of contextual economics at the Global Development and Environment Institute at Tufts University and an advocate for a new
economics curriculum readying a younger generation to shape a sustainable future; and

Stewart Wallis, executive director of the influential New Economics Foundation of London that has led policy creation and public campaigns to successfully affect change in economic behavior.
 
November 20th, 10AM to 5PM, at Community Church of New York, 40 East 35th
Street, New York City.  Tickets are $65. Registration is through the New
York Open Center: www.opencenter.org

Events of the past few years have helped create a broad shift in our
thinking about economics.  The Thirtieth Annual E. F. Schumacher Lectures
are presented in recognition of this movement and in celebration of the many
organizations and businesses working to develop the theory and practice of a
new economics.
