Creating the Love and Caring Economy with Hazel Henderson
Co-hosts Jean Houston and Anneloes Smitsman talk with evolutionary economist and futurist Hazel Henderson about the role of global finance, the institutionalization of the seven deadly sins in the algorithms of our mainstream economic systems, as well as how to change this by incentivizing the Golden Rule for the creation of the "love and caring economy."
Hazel reminds us that this is graduation time for our species; "we have to expand our consciousness now to the actual real circumstances of our survival." She warns that the game of incentivizing everything with money by algorithmically rewarding the seven deadly sins is over. She also explains why education should be the fundamental investment that every society makes in its future as the foundation for a healthy democracy. In her closing message, Hazel advises that we need to learn how to decode our own experiences and to evaluate everything we are taught.
