The New Paradigm of Business – Local Economies talk at SFU


    Right now humanity is facing a oppressive list of seemingly impossible obstacles. From global warming to rising social inequity (the 99% vs. the 1%) we appear to be at a pivotal point in our evolution.

    Many blame the financial markets, multinational corporations and the banks. However many of these arguments discriminate against businesses as if they are all the same.

    What if business could be the way out of our global challenges?

    Not the profit above all else, destructive kind of business that has become rampant but a new paradigm of business. Where people and planet are harmoniously balanced with profit.

    Many business are already functioning according this new model and succeeding. Demonstrating that public demand is already there.

    The “2011 Cone/Echo Global CR Opportunity Study” found that-

    A mere six percent of consumers globally channel economist Milton Friedman and only hold businesses accountable for making money.

    That means that 94% of people on the planet believe that business should be doing more for us all!

    This event will explore the next steps in this process with local new paradigm business leaders, economists, politicians and more. (Panel TBA soon).

    Focus will be on how we can build a strong local economy in Vancouver towards this end.

    We will have a round table format starting with a brief introduction to the concept, then we will meet the panel and open the floor for dialogue.

    All with an open mind, are welcome to this FREE event!
