Sydney, Buenos Aires, Washington, Traverse City, New York, London… Spot the odd one out.
Traverse City is in Michigan, and for the second time in two years I found myself diverting from my usual capital city travels to spend a few days near Lake Michigan at a “Local Future” conference organized by Aaron Wissner. It’s an unusual conference, with a community focus, participants from many walks of life but predominantly concerned citizens rather than corporate representatives, and a diverse range of topics blending ecology, economics and governance. The videos from the 2011 conference, entitled “Vision-Action-Leadership”, have just been posted on Youtube, and they include a two-part interview of me by Aaron where he asked me to explain money without resorting to either Powerpoint slides or equations.
There are many other videos in the series, including some with Nicole Foss who will shortly be in Australia, and I do recommend checking them out. Below is my interview in two parts.
