To solve today's financial crisis, some fundamental changes in our monetary system are needed. This presentation with economist Bernard Lietaer covers the economic, spiritual and psychological aspects of money and suggests monetary policies and practices for the future.
Bernard Lietaer, author of Of Human Wealth (Citerra Press, 2007) and The Future of Money (London: Random House, 2001), has been active in the domain of money systems for a period of 25 years in an unusual variety of functions. While at the Central Bank in Belgium he co-designed and implemented the convergence mechanism (ECU) to the single European currency system. During that period, he also served as President of Belgium's Electronic Payment System.
His consultant experience in monetary aspects on four continents ranges from multinational corporations to developing countries. He co-founded one of the largest and most successful currency funds becoming its General Manager and Currency Trader. He was Visiting Professor of International Finance at the University of Louvain and Naropa University. He is currently Research Fellow at the Center for Sustainable Resources of the University of California at Berkeley, Member of the Club of Rome; Fellow at the World Academy of Arts and Sciences; of the World Business Academy; and of the European Academy of Sciences and Arts.
Renowned economist Bernard Lietaer links the patriarchal economic system to the current financial crisis. He believes a shift back to a matrifocal system would balance masculine and feminine impulses, leading to greater societal and fiscal stability.
I don't know whether it'll be of help or not, but I'd invite you to visit my blog site at ' the integral economist '. I've endeavored to present a comprehensive overview of Bernard Lietaer's work with links to supporting papers and a video on comparable subject matter from TEDxBerlin in November of 2009.
So much that this guy says isn't correct. Alot just wouldn't work, one or two aren't feasable yet (but I accept the concept, yes), and some stuff is just rubbish.
Am I missing a whole lot or does this guy talk quite alot of garbage?
