Making Sense of the Financial Crisis in the Era of Peak Oil
We’re all on a roller coaster ride …. financial markets are up today, and down again tomorrow – but hey … we’re bound to bounce back soon and, when we do, things will all be hunky-dory again. Right?
Wrong, says Nicole Foss, who writes as Stoneleigh for The Automatic Earth. Nicole and her writing partner (co-editors of The Automatic Earth) have been chronicling and interpreting the on-going credit crunch as the most pressing aspect of our current multi-faceted predicament. They believe we are heading for the biggest economic crash we’ve ever seen.
If this is so, what is our vision of the future? How can we work together of creating economic outcomes?
To address these questions, Transition Rogers Park has invited Stoneleigh to Chicago on Wednesday, January 19, 2011 (United Church of Rogers Park). She will meet and dialogue with us about the most important challenges facing us this century.
Stoneleigh’s analysis integrates finance, energy, environment, psychology, population and real politik in order to explain why we find ourselves in a state of crisis – and what we can do about it.
