It's been a long haul and we've had the greatest honor getting to know some of the brightest minds and biggest hearts that are leading the conversation on money and building a new economy . . .<br /> <br /> . . . The converging crises we are grappling with today reflect the crumbling of old stories and institutions that are no longer adequate for the times we are living in.

Difficult for sure, but there is no palatable alternative."<br /> <br /> <a href="http://capitalinstitute.org/blog/welcome-anthropocene">http://capitalinstitute.org/blog/welcome-anthropocene</a>
