“Given the timing, reach, and location of this conference, I can scarcely imagine a more favorable opportunity to make a historic contribution to framing a new national conversation on the redesign of an economy that has failed environmentally, socially, and now financially. The conference organizers intend to highlight the relationship between spiritual awakening and economic transformation in the service of justice and sustainability. My presentation will frame the moral choice between money and life and the ways in which Wall Street has reproduced the historic practice of debt bondage on a national and global scale to maintain the structures of domination and expropriation that the world’s great religions have condemned for thousands of years.
"The publication schedule for Agenda for a New Economy: From Phantom Wealth to Real Wealth. Why Wall Street Can't Be Fixed and How to Replace it was time to have the book available in time to launch at this conference.
“Working with the staff of the Trinity Church Institute has been a thrilling experience. They bring an exceptional commitment, spiritual sensibility, and professionalism to the work of making this a significant national event.”
