Event Description

We are back! By popular demand after over 25 people attended our lectures in our inaugural Ecological Economics class in the spring of 2013, Michael Barkusky, Jordan Bober, and Randy Chatterjee are again teaching from Herman Daly's unparalleled textbook.

We are starting in September 2013 and running every third Wednesday night from 7 to 9 PM at a downtown Vancouver location, and continuing for "as long as it takes" to spread the teachings of an enlightened economics, where assumptions such as unlimited growth, pollution as a mitigable externality, and free trade face fair and unbiassed scrutiny.

More important than critiquing a field that has likely done more damage to the world than any other academic discipline, we will be constructing new economics models for promoting real wealth, positive yields, just distribution, healthy societies, sustainable resource extraction, stable banking and monetary regulation, and truly fair trade.

Join us, and change the world. All of it.

We encourage all to join at any time, even if an earlier class was missed. Please contact Randy Chatterjee by email to pick up the reading ahead of time so that you will be able to follow the class more effectively. All readings can be emailed.
