Ceres event with Nicole Foss, Melbourne Sunday February 18

Flattr this!

Nicole Foss, the sys­tems ana­lyst and biol­o­gist behind the blog Auto­mat­ic Earth, is speak­ing tomor­row at A Com­pass for Tur­bu­lent Times, organ­ised by Ceres.

I’m on the bill too, which I’m told will pro­ceed rough­ly as fol­lows:

9–11 Nicole (inc Qs)
11–30 Morn­ing tea
11.30 — 12.30 Steve (inc Qs) — focus on aust con­text
12.30 — 1.30pm Lunch
1–30 — 2pm Oppor­tu­ni­ty for fur­ther Qs to both
2pm — 3.30 — Work­shop ses­sion — small­er groups come up with
hypo­thet­i­cal scenarios/strategies (30mins) to put back to Nicole/Steve
for response / dis­cus­sion (1hr).

Nicole is an excel­lent thinker and speak­er; we’ve spo­ken twice togeth­er now at events organ­ised by Local Futures in Michi­gan, and I have great respect for her com­bined eco­nom­ic-eco­log­i­cal per­spec­tive (in which ecol­o­gy dom­i­nates!).

If you’d like to attend, book­ings are still avail­able from Ceres; tick­ets cost $150, or $110 for con­ces­sions and Ceres mem­bers. Ceres is a not-for-prof­it organ­i­sa­tion, and the fees are cov­er­ing the costs of bring­ing Nicole out to Aus­tralia.

The event is being held at CERES Com­mu­ni­ty Envi­ron­ment Park Cnr Roberts and Stew­art East Brunswick VIC 3057.

About Steve Keen

I am Professor of Economics and Head of Economics, History and Politics at Kingston University London, and a long time critic of conventional economic thought. As well as attacking mainstream thought in Debunking Economics, I am also developing an alternative dynamic approach to economic modelling. The key issue I am tackling here is the prospect for a debt-deflation on the back of the enormous private debts accumulated globally, and our very low rate of inflation.
