The latest episode of It’s Our Money with Ellen Brown examines the intersection of the environment and our monetary system. Co-host Walt McRee introduces the podcast:
Regenerating Nature and the Economy
Our debt-based capital regime appears oblivious to the essential demands of Nature and the regenerative systems that are our most foundational economy. The urgency of our climate crisis means transformative reform of our monetary relationships is desperately needed. Responding to that need, our guest Ed Quevedo, Director of Regenerative Design at the Foresight + Innovation Lab in CA, has been working with economic and policy leaders to build a New Regenerative Economy (NRE). This California-based initiative is complemented by other CA progressive movements that include the push for a Los Angeles public bank. Co-host Walt McRee talks with Marc Armstrong, who is consulting for Public Bank LA, a vibrant, smart group of young activists intent on creating a public bank in the nation’s second largest city by winning a measure placed on this fall’s ballot by the L.A. City Council. And commentator Bob Bows delivers the next installment of his new book on transforming global economies.
