Re-visualizing the American Economy | 2013 Lecture Videos


A perceptible alchemy linked speaker to speaker, speakers to participants, and participants to each other at Saturday’s 33rd Annual E. F. Schumacher Lectures in New York City.

Otto Scharmer, Van Jones, and Judy Wicks outlined the emergence of new economic structures that embed social diversity, shared equity, and care for our fragile ecosystems.  They described the collective consciousness leading that emergence.

Inspired and visionary while also rooted in the practical, the lectures were reminiscent of the best Annual E. F. Schumacher Lectures of the past but the context was thoroughly contemporary— an awareness of the rapidly changing economic conditions before us gave urgency and edge to the discussion.

The videos of the talks are now posted at the Schumacher Center’s website for you to view and share.  The edited texts of previous Schumacher Lectures can be read online or ordered in pamphlet form, and the audio of these talks can be heard at the Schumacher Center’s site.
