The New Sustainable Economy and You


Published on

Slides for my talk about three things:

1.) The state of our current economy and the opportunity to build a better economic system.
2.) What such a change can mean for you (the audience was b-school students).
3.) What social entrepreneurship and social enterprise mean and why it can make a difference.
