Keynote: Peak Money and the Ecological Transition

Primary tabs

Even though ecological agriculture occupies a growing niche in the food market, many farmers find that the more they produce with that market in mind, the less "ecological" they become. Money exercises a relentless pressure on farmers to compromise their deeply held values: often, it seems, the best financial decision is not the best ecological decision or the best decision for one's community and future generations. This talk will explain how our current money system creates these conditions, how the crisis in money is opening up radically new possibilities, and how we can prepare for — and help to create — an economic future in which money is no longer inimical to community, ecology, health, beauty, and place.
