Weʼve all heard the saying, “Itʼs the economy, stupid.” In this eveningʼs presentation weʼll turn the tables and shift the rather pejorative connotations where they belong: “Itʼs the stupid economy.” Whatʼs “stupid” is our current economic modelʼs requirement for infinite growth in a world that is demonstrably finite. Key to the evening will be the idea
that the next 20 years will bear little resemblance to the previous couple decades. In a time of far-reaching and systemic change, what can we do to develop resilience in our households and communities?
