Show 50: Launching the Solidarity Economy

Emily Kawano, executive director of the Center for Popular Economics in Amherst, Massachusetts, discusses the launch of the US Solidarity Economy Network coming out of the US Social Forum in Atlanta in June 2007. Co-hosts Francesca Rheannon and Bill Baue ask Kawano to explain the defining features of Solidarity Economy--how big an umbrella it is, how it distinguishes itself from the competitive framework of current neoliberal economics, and how it can promote true social and environmental sustainability.

Show 49: Designing the Future of the Corporation

Allen White and Marjorie Kelly discuss the upcoming Summit on the Future of the Corporation that the organization they founded, Corporation 2020, is hosting in Boston on November 13 and 14, 2007. The Summit gathers thought leaders from business, civil society, labor, government, and academia to discuss and plan new corporate structures designed for social, environmental, and financial sustainability. This conversation, co-hosted by Bill Baue and Francesca Rheannon, follows up on CWR's two-part interview with Allen and Marjorie in June 2006, and also touches on the question of whether legal regulation is the best means of promoting corporate change first addressed on CWR when we spoke with Terry Mollner, a Ben & Jerry's boardmember and a founding boardmember of Calvert Social Investment Funds.

Show 47: Paul Hawken's Blessed Unrest

Bill Baue and Francesca Rheannon speak with Paul Hawken about his new book, Blessed Unrest: How the Largest Movement in the World Came into Being and Why No One Saw It Coming. Our conversation was so fascinating that we are presenting it in two shows. The first show focuses on defining the Blessed Unrest movement that brings together environmentalists, social justice activists, and indigenous people's advocates, and on describing the metaphor of how this system works like the planet's immune system.
