Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
Bellowing out in the songs of eco-village choirs and reverberating down city streets through the chants of the 99%, the call for a new economy echoes out over the dying gasps of late capitalism.

From energy co-operatives in Spain that are literally bringing power to the local level, to a small school hidden deep in the English moors that is redesigning the study of economics, to a vast coalition in North America that is challenging domination by the 1%, this episode of Upstream explores the movement for a new economy.

Notes: Credits:
This 5th episode shows Upstream at their best, weaving together sound collages, expert interviews, and wonderful music into an hour-long exploration of the new economy.

the story begins in 1984, just outside of the G7 World Economic Summit in London, where a small group convened a counter summit to challenge the ideas and theories that dominated mainstream economics. They follow the ripples of this seminal event as they radiate out through the world and on into our current era of Trump & Brexit.

This lineage traces back to the work of the renegade economist E. F. Schumacher (1911-1977). You'll hear from him, as well as many of the other people and organizations on the cutting-edge of this broad movement that is working to revolutionize the way we think about what the economy is, the way economics is taught, and the way we embody new economics in practice. 
Produced by Della Z Duncan & Robert R Raymond.
