Speaking on:

Change Everything: Creating an Economy for the Common Good

Thursday, September 15, 2016

 6 PM Potluck, 7 PM presentation

MDUUC – Owl Room, 55 Eckley Lane, Walnut Creek

Felber coined the term “Economy for the Common Good”,  in his book Die Gemeinwohl-Ökonomie – Das Wirtschaftsmodell der Zukunft, published in 2010.  This economic model calls for working towards the common good and cooperation instead of profit-orientation and competition which lead to greed and uncontrolled growth.  According to Felber, it makes much more sense for companies to create a so-called “common good balance sheet” than a financial balance sheet. The common good balance sheet shows the extent to which a company abides by values like human dignity, solidarity and economic sustainability.

Felber is an internationally renowned speaker, contemporary dancer, lecturer at the Vienna University of Economics and Business and author of several bestsellers.

Tickets: $10 in advance / $15 at the door.
