Scaling Down to Cut Carbon-Reclaiming a Sustainable Local Economy

March 4, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Free

During this lunch hour event, come to hear retired Industrial Design Program instructor Jacques Laval discuss his recent book Scaling Down to Cut Carbon, in which he offers an alternate interpretation of our current understanding of obsolescence, low prices, externalities, low-cost raw materials and globalization, all part of society’s systemic consumerism.  The economy does not belong to economists.  Can we curb the capitalist economy?

The second half of the event will be dedicated to questions and discussion with audience members.
