Funding the New Economy. Join pioneering policy makers, civic leaders, banking entrepreneurs, innovators and ordinary citizens interested in learning about one of the most critical undertakings of our time: creating a truly prosperous, democratic and sustainable new economy.
On Sunday night, June 2nd from 7 - 9:30pm, Matt Taibbi will speak on "Griftopia: Bubble Machines, Vampire Squds, and the Long Con That Is Breaking America." He will join Ellen Brown, Author of Web of Debt and her book (newly available on 6/2/13) The Buck Starts Here, and Birgitta Jónsdóttir, member of Iceland's Parliament, in a discussion of how we can move from a two-tiered justice system (one favoring the financial elites and one for the rest of us) to a more just and democratic system where we can reclaim our economic sovereignty from Wall Street banks and the US Congress.
