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

Update on Industrial Hemp in Oregon by Edgar Winters and Doug Fine
Static Preview

Interview with Oregon Farmer, Edgar Winters of the Oregon Agricultural Food and Rural Consortium (OAFRC) and author and hemp advocate Doug Fine.

Will Edgar the first hemp licensee in Oregon for industrial hemp be able to get seeds in the ground before times runs out to plant this spring? Maybe, but it will have to be through 7606 Federal Farm Bill provision which permits "agricultural pilot programs."

This is an old commodity, king of all plants, and we need to build the domestic seed stock and get things rolling and see positive results in terms of rural economic development. Produced by Barry Heidt.
