by James Gustave Speth
SCHUMACHER CENTER LECTURE
In this lecture based on his book, America the Possible: Manifesto for a New Economy, Speth addresses the problems that we are facing today as a nation and as a globe. Beginning on the local and regional levels, Speth says that we must forge together to build a coherent, positive, and plausible America from the ground up. As he envisions what the future will look like, he is adamant that America the Possible can be achieved by first changing our culture, our values, and our consciousness in this country in order to move towards a new economy that prioritizes sustaining the well-being of people and the planet.
