Right Relationship: the new eco-economic model -- Peter Brown

In a 50 min video and powerpoint, Dr Peter G. Brown (McGill Environmental Studies) explains to Concordia business school students how the core Quaker principle of "right relationship"—respecting the integrity, resilience, and beauty of human and natural communities—can serve as the foundation for a new economic model. See the written article just published by Peter and others online: Kosoy N et al. "Pillars for a flourishing Earth: planetary boundaries, economic growth delusion and green economy".  In the book Right Relationship: Building a Whole Earth Economy, he and co-author Geoffrey Garver propose new economic policies that combine science and morality. They will both be involved in the 13-19 May 2012 international Degrowth conference in Montreal.
