In this episode, recorded live at Prarie Festival earlier this year, Woody Tasch, founder of the Slow Money movement, joins David Bilbrey to discuss the limits of growth as related to economics, our personal role in changing the future, and where Woody sees Slow Money in the next few years. Along the way they talk about the incredible impact of other thinkers on these ideas, include Wendell Berry, Wes Jackson, and E. F. Schumacher, author of Small is Beautiful.
In the post conversation interview I spend a few minutes looking at the judgement-free way that Permaculture allows us to best use our resources, especially being able to vote with our money, to have an impact on what we are able to do. By taking these kinds of actions each day we are able to decrease the size of our integrity gap and live in ever greater service to Earth, ourselves, and each other.
