Don’t miss our next Fourth Friday. Marco Vangelisti, who’s been a major force in the Bay Area Slow Money movement, has been thinking a lot about money, banking, and what they mean for Transition. Here’s what Marco says:
In the face of increasing economic instability, building a resilient, enduring and equitable local economy is vital. To achieve this, we need to understand the current economic system, how it affects our communities and ways to transform it. We also need to understand how the monetary, banking and financial systems work and their central role in the functioning of the economy.
Only a fundamental shift in the design of the monetary and banking systems will make possible a shift towards a sustainable steady-state economy that works for everybody and is compatible with environmental stewardship.
The February Fourth Friday will be a special opportunity to learn and ask questions about our money and banking system and how we can they can be shifted to better serve the transition to a sustainable future. Marco’s a knowledgeable and engaging speaker – you’ll learn and enjoy doing so!
