5-6 PM Live on YouTube and Facebook + Intro & Q&A on Zoom
In 1929 the first Great Depression hit the world. It was the widest and deepest depression of the 20th century. Today we not only stand on the edge of another economic depression but we are also teetering on the brink of a climate crisis that if we don’t act now, may be irreversible.
Fortunately, any crisis can be turned into an opportunity for positive change to emerge. Just as in 1929 where new monetary models were created, now is the time to not just talk about new solutions but to enact them. We can build a fairer, more balanced economy that is not built on the back of our shared ecology but works in harmony with it.
In his talk, Lewis will explore highlight ideas that emerged from the Great Depression and share new actionable solutions to our current global challenges, based on local, resilient, decentralized currency design.
On June 25th at 17:00 CET, you can watch the talk on our Economia Festival YouTube channel and Baltan Laboratories Facebook Page, where the videos will remain accessible afterwards.
