John de Graff – What’s the Economy for Anyway?


WGBHForum

Published on Oct 15, 2012

Activist, author, and film-maker John de Graaf looks beyond the current downturn to explore the assumptions underlying the U.S. economy at Cambridge Forum. In an election cycle that is focused on the economic future, his new book “What’s the Economy For, Anyway?” offers a different perspective on quality of life, health, security, work-life balance, leisure, social justice, and sustainability. How can we measure economic success? Nationally? Individually? What is the role of growth in a 21st-century economy? What role can governments play in creating economic success? What is the individual’s role? Recorded 10/10/12. More lectures at http://forum-network.org
