ABOUT

We are in a liminal time rich with possibility. These salons are designed to up-skill your mental models for the next economy. Because learning is a collaborative process, the salons are interactive with facilitation by Denise. Look forward to seeing you soon.

FORMAT

One hour: a 25 minute presentation, followed by

small group discussion and Q and A.

COST

All salons are offered on a 'pay what you want' basis, inspired by the

Gift Economy. You'll receive a PayPal link upon completion of the salon.

EMERGENT ECONOMIES: USING NATURE AS A GUIDE

Emergent phenomena are nonlinear, self-organizing, and non-mathematically computable. This presentation explores how our economic system, and even money itself, is emergent — causing us to re-think how we measure growth, value, and economic productivity.

THE MYTH OF CAPITALISM:

MONOPOLIES AND THE DEATH OF COMPETITION

Named a Best Book of 2018 by the Financial Times, The Myth of Capitalism explores the future of capitalism, inequality, monopoly power, and the need for new models and new approaches to guide a future economy that works for all.

SYSTEMS THINKING FOR THE NEXT ECONOMY

Covid-19 has laid bare our need for structural change. This presentation provides mental models for thinking through complex systems, and provides case studies of promising new models that eschew perpetual, winner-take-all growth and embrace perpetual value creation based on distributed power and democratized decision-making.
