Description: Charles Eisenstein, social innovator, author, lecturer will give a one hour presentation (via skype) on the Chico State campus, followed by a 40 minute discussion, on alternative arrangements to our current economic system. Information on EisensteinÂ¹s thesis can be found on the website <http://www.ascentofhumanity.com/essays.php> where his articles on reimagining the economy are posted and can be read. Read "Money and the Turning of the Age" as well as "Money and the Crisis of Civilization". The program will begin with the playing of a brief video taped interview from the news program Democracy Now! with Rolling Stone journalist, Matt Taibbi addressing the unsustainability of current economic practice (in order to provide some context for Eisenstein). That video clip will be followed by an hour of Charles Eisenstein offering his prepared remarks. Eisenstein will then take 20 minutes to consider questions from several Peace Institute panelists. During the final 20 minutes of the program Eisenstein will entertain questions from the audience. This program is sponsored by The Peace Institute at California State University, Chico, and is free and open to the public.
