Coffee and Conversation at the College of the Atlantic
On July 31, 2012, GDAE Co-Director Neva Goodwin spoke with the College of the Atlantic trustee Hank Schmelzer. While engaging the audience to think about the need for alternatives to current economic theory, she raises questions of whether corporate goals create materialistic desires to respond to immaterial needs, trapping society in a culture of “no such thing as enough.”
GDAE Co-Director Neva Goodwin shares her thoughts on how economics have been taught in the past. The video was filmed by the New Economics Institute at their June 2012 conference on "Strategies for a New Economy."
Additional videos from the conference can be found here.
Creating New Curriculum to Address the Needs of the Time
GDAE Co-Director Neva Goodwin participated in a round-table discussion with Debra Rowe and Rob Johnson. They address what students learn – or should learn – about economics for a sustainable future and how these concepts can be embedded into the courses of multiple disciplines. Recognizing that most students will not go on to be economists, but all will go on to be citizens, the panel asks what content needs to be included, especially in introductory economics courses, that is not usually found there now.
This video was filmed as part of the New Economics Institute Conference on "Strategies for a New Economy" at Bard College on June 8, 2012. Additional videos from the conference can be found here.
