What’s the economy for, anyway? Is it just about having the biggest GDP or the highest Dow Jones Average? Or is it about providing for a healthy, happy, fair and sustainable society?
Dozens of prominent experts and activists will offer parts of the answer to the big question of “What’s the Economy For, Anyway?” and offer out-of-the-box ideas about what can be done to make the economy serve us instead of vice-versa. David Bollier, a senior fellow at the Norman Lear Center, will participate in the panel called “Access to Knowledge.” Workshops will include in-depth analysis of current problems, comparisons to the economic performance of other industrial countries, and concrete policy solutions for a happier, healthier, most just and sustainable United States.
