8. (2012 October) What Can You Do: 2012 Earthsharing Canada Conference

2012 Earthsharing Canada Conference
October 27-28, 2012

Open Source Economics means economics free of moribund academic bias, free from powerful interest groups, and beyond today’s prevailing dysfunctional conventional wisdom.

Ideas like:
– Business-friendly, job-friendly, innovation-friendly, planet-friendly taxation;
– Impotence of central bank monetary policy exposed;
– Amnesia-free academic rediscovery of basic laws of economics;
– Self-financing public infrastructure through land value taxation (LVT);
– Green economics to conserve resources, rebuild the Global Commons;
– Economics to stop sprawl, incent walkable communities, build affordable housing;
– Economic rent capture to break boom/bust cycle, reduce speculation, underground economy;
– Equitable wealth distribution, less re-distribution, reduced welfare state.
