How I Learned about Capitalism from JS Bach and a Penniless Swami (Full Session)

Some argue that capitalism is a great blessing and a fundamental force for good. Others argue that it can encourage greed. The truth? Both sides are onto something. Free enterprise has lifted billions of people out of poverty worldwide. But while we fight for prosperity at home and around the world, we must guard against materialism and remember that money is only a means to greater ends. Please join Arthur Brooks—New York Times columnist, bestselling author, and president of the American Enterprise Institute—for this thought-provoking conversation.

Sustainability: Accounting Reform? by Larry O'Connor
Static Preview

Larry O'Connor, lecturer in accounting in the business school of La Trobe University in Australia started out with his inquiry as to how accounting is bringing about changes towards a more sustainable economy and has come to the conclusion that it isn't. The driver remains idealogy of the free market is set within a certain value set and has been misrepresented as an "agenda of reform," but is really deforming, putting economics at the center spot, making the economic value at the center of all things to include turning Universities into profit centers. As a result, accounting is being used to entrench the status quo rather than to benefit sustainability. 

This video was produced by Ruth Ann Barrett, producer, EarthSayers.tv as part of her participation in Portland State University's Social Sustainability Network. The video was made in June, 2010.
