How Free is the Free Market by Raj Patel
Static Preview

Uploaded on Jan 13, 2010

Raj Patel, author of The Value of Nothing, examines the concepts of freedom and liberty in relation to the free market economy. He suggests Nobel laureate Elinor Ostrom's notion of collaborative governance known as "the commons" may be a better alternative to resource management.
If economics is about choices, who gets to make them? Activist and academic Raj Patel says that prices often mislead us, and he reveals the "hidden costs" of goods. To demonstrate his argument that the free market and corporations distort price and value, Patel suggests that the true price of a hamburger would be $200 if we factor in the hidden environment and health costs.

Published on Dec 16, 2014
Kate Raworth flips economic thinking on its head to give a crash course in alternative economics, explaining in three minutes what they'll never teach you in three years of a degree. Find out why it's time to get into the doughnut...
Watch the video,Introducing 'The Doughnut' of social and planetary boundaries for development YouTube here.

Kate is an economist focused on the rewriting of economics to make it fit for addressing this century's realities and challenges. She is the creator of the doughnut of social and planetary boundaries which, since being first published by Oxfam in 2012, has gained widespread international recognition and influence in reframing sustainable development, including shaping the United Nations' post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals. She is currently writing Doughnut Economics: seven ways to think like a 21st century economist, to be published by Random House in Spring 2016.

Kate is a senior visiting research associate and lecturer at Oxford University's Environmental Change Institute, and a senior associate of the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership. She has presented doughnut economics widely – from the UN General Assembly to the Occupy Movement – and her writing has featured in The Guardian, The New Statesman, Resurgence, Nature Climate Change, and Wired. She has been named by The Guardian as "one of the top ten tweeters on economic transformation”.

Over the past two decades she was senior researcher at Oxfam, co-author of the UN Human Development Report, and a fellow of the Overseas Development Institute in Zanzibar. She holds a first class BA in Politics, Philosophy and Economics and a MSc in Economics for Development, both from Oxford University.

Kate blogs about Doughnut Economics at www.kateraworth.com and tweets @KateRaworth.

Oregon should be National Industrial Hemp Leader by Rep Earl Blumenauer
Static Preview

Published on Nov 12, 2013

Oregon should be a national leader in industrial hemp production, which can fuel economic development in rural communities, inspire entrepreneurs and meet rising consumer demand, U.S. Rep. Earl Blumenauer said Saturday.

"I think the stakes are high for Oregon," Blumenauer told a group of industrial hemp supporters at a forum he organized in Portland Saturday.

The Portland Democrat, an outspoken advocate of industrial hemp, said momentum is building for the crop in Oregon and in other states. He pointed to a letter he received on Friday from Oregon's U.S. attorney, Amanda Marshall, as a positive step for hemp production in the state.

The Rise of Responsible Investment by James Gifford
Static Preview

Published on Apr 22, 2013

James Gifford says the global financial crisis has caused more firms to consider the impact of environmental, social and corporate governance factors on the long-term sustainability of a company. James Gofford, the Executive Director of the U.N. Principles for Responsible Investment says that only using financial metrics to gauge future value is "a bygone paradigm." Short-term investment strategies must be addressed by leaders coming together and saying, "Something is wrong here."

Dr. James Gifford is a Senior Fellow at the Initiative for Responsible Investment at the Harvard Kennedy School, where he researches sustainable investment in emerging markets and methods to deliver positive impact within mainstream investment strategies.

Published by the IESE. For over fifty years, IESE, the graduate business school of the University of Navarra, has been at the forefront of management education, developing and inspiring business leaders who strive to make a deep, positive and lasting impact on the people, companies and society they serve.

The Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by Dirk Philipsen
Static Preview

DEFINITION of 'Gross Domestic Product -GDP' The monetary value of all the finished goods and services produced within a country's borders in a specific time period, though GDP is usually calculated on an annual basis.

GDP is seen as the universal yardstick of progress and the highest goal of politics. But economic historian Dirk Philipsen argues that the world can no longer afford GDP rule, and it’s time now for a different measure.
Economic historian Dirk Philipsen shows how the history of GDP reveals unique opportunities to fashion smarter goals and measures, and explores a possible roadmap for a future that advances quality of life rather than indiscriminate growth.

Today, increasing GDP is the highest goal of politics. But a finite planet cannot sustain blind and indefinite expansion. If we consider future generations equal to our own, replacing the GDP regime is the ethical imperative of our times. Published on Aug 2, 2015

His book, The Little Big Number, is available from Amazon by clicking the image or visiting your local bookstore or library.
