Event Description

We're pleased to welcome Nicole Foss, aka Stoneleigh, of The Automatic Earth back to talk about the future of our economy.  She packed a lecture hall at Langara College last year with tales of impending economic collapse.  

Now, after the Occupy Movement launched last fall, she has a new upbeat tone and theme, The Storm Surge of Decentralization.  This is the 99%'s reaction to what we now know about the Ponzi schemes embedded in our modern financial systems, and changes have already begun.  

Nicole Foss is a globally-sought issues leader on transition and an expert on the macro-economics of resilience.

By donation at the door. Please register thru Langara 604.323.5322 (CRN 50965) or RSVP here.

Hi Ross - I was away when she was here last.Looking forward to this talk, We did see her and Ilargi in Florence at the end of October 2011. That was fun. And she is more upbeat now!

See ya there!

I had no idea these two were speaking here.  Attending both.  Wonderful stuff.  Thank you.

P.S. Don't forget to either register thru Langara or RSVP here - I think we'll have a full house both evenings.

Hey Carol,

Glad you can make it to both - I think you were away for her last time?

Ha! I hear that even Nicole is more upbeat these days! (Well, relatively speaking!) Both she and Richard like Transition, and hey, we're pretty upbeat! :-)

"Collapse Gap" hyperlink. Well-known essay positing that the Soviet Union was better prepared for its collapse than the U.S. will be for its inevitable downfall.

Cool about Heinberg, too. He was on a podcast in November with Stoneleigh, Dmitry <a href="http://www.energybulletin.net/node/23259">"Collapse Gap"</a> Orlov, Jim Kunstler and Noam Chomsky (who turned out to be a blowhard that night.) I'll skip out early from work to see him. I love doom...

Glad to make your day, Vern!

And we have Peak Everything guru Richard Heinberg coming on Feb 10.

Comment by Vern Baker on January 25, 2012 at 9:32am

Excellent!!!  This totally made my day.  Finally, I get to experience a speech by Nicole Foss.  Foss is probably the foremost speaker for transition at nearly every level.  Check the automaticearth blog for previous speeches and podcasts etc.

Hooray for Stoneleigh! If you haven't seen her speak or read the blog she co-writes, you shouldn't miss this. Listening to her is like getting a college-level course on economics, psychology and what the future holds, in two hours. It's kind of doom-ish, but ends with hopeful hints on how to cope with the collapse that's coming. (Hint: stockpile friends, not guns.) Her message is perfectly correspondent with what Village Vancouver is trying to achieve.
