Steady-State Economics for Environmental Protection, Jobs, and Security – MAREA
Mar 31 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Speaker: Dr. Brian Czech, Executive Director, Center for the Advancement of the Steady State Economy (CASSE)
Applying principles of ecology to the human economy, Czech will argue that GDP has become an outstanding indicator of one thing above all others; namely, environmental destruction. Next, with a systematic analysis of the origins and process of research and development (R&D), Czech will defuse the notion that technological progress can reconcile the conflict between economic growth and environmental protection. Czech will conclude with proposals for consumer reform, economic policy, and international diplomacy.
MAREA is very pleased to have Brian share his insights with us on Tuesday, March 31, at 7:00 at TEKPark (9999 Hamilton Boulevard, Breinigsville, PA 18031, between Kutztown and Allentown).
