Bernard Lietear at the oikos Spring Meeting 2015
Currency expert, Bernard Lietaer, advocates an upgrade of our money systems as a systemic solution to our global economic, financial, and sustainability crisis. His most recent book - 'Money and Sustainability: The Missing Link' provides deep insights into how our current monetary system encourages unsustainability in its own right and encourages unsustainable interactions within our environment too.
Lietaer will be speaking on the 'complexity and stability of money' at the oikos Spring Meeting 2015 in London (March 26-29).
Mr. Lietear's TED Talk.
