The State of the Sharing Economy with Rachel Botsman
Static Preview

Streamed live on May 19, 2016

The sharing economy has grown rapidly in the last 5 years, and is now popularized by big players such as Airbnb and Uber. But with growth, come growing pains. As the sector comes of age, what steps need to be taken now to unlock its full social potential and to ensure it remains an economic model that empowers not exploits? Rachel Botsman visits the RSA to consider where it's heading next – who will be the next breakout venture to be cited alongside Airbnb and Uber and what about the smaller ventures that are critical to the healthy diversity of the sector?; and to explore the big issues we need to tackle now, from platform culture to monopolization, the power of providers and the future of work.
Six minute version is here.

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.

Why We Should Own the Banks by Ellen Brown
Static Preview

Banks create money – nearly all of it. Should we recapture the sovereign power to create money by reclaiming ownership of the banks? Founder and President of the Public Banking Institute Ellen Brown argues that we need to own the banks – or at least some of them – in order to ensure the safety of our deposits, public and private; to reclaim the profits for the public interest; to reclaim control over where our credit goes and on what terms; and to cut the costs of government.

Very few states in the U.S. have started to transform their economy in a way that would keep climate change at bay, and in a way that matches the Paris climate agreement.

The goal of New York state's new energy policy, Reforming the Energy Vision, is to get half of the state energy from clean sources by 2030.

Changing Structural Context of our Economy by Jeffrey Hollender
Static Preview

Published on Jun 27, 2012

Recorded live at the New Economics Institute Strategies for a New Economy Conference on June 9, 2012, Seventh Generation and American Sustainable Business Council Co-Founder Jeffrey Hollender speaks about initiatives to transform business from being the source of problems for our economy to being part of the solution. "As the co-founder and chair of the American Sustainable Business Council, which is a group of 140,000 small and medium sized businesses, we're involved in public policy initiatives like the Jobs Bill to create a more level playing field and a better public policy environment for a new economy to emerge," says Hollender. "I know that in most instances, business doesn't operate in a particularly responsible, moral, or sustainable fashion -- and that is something we need to correct," he continues. "But we don't have jobs without business, so we need to figure out how to change the structural context of our economy in ways that encourages businesses to behave differently."
