Please mark your calendars as a renowned author and Founder of the Slow Money Alliance is coming to Ashland.
Saturday June 6th 7-9 PM – At BloomsBury for a Book Signing
Sunday June 7th 2-5 PM – At The Grange speaking to the questions posed below.
This is an amazing opportunity to discuss what is happening in our community and how we might bring some of these great ideas into reality this year!
Inquiries into the Nature of Slow Money presents the path for bringing money back down to earth philosophically,
strategically and pragmatically, and with an entrepreneurial spirit that is informed by the work of thousands of CEOs, investors, grant-makers, food producers and consumers who are seeding the restorative economy.
This mission emerges from Woody Tasch’s decades of work as a venture capitalist, foundation treasurer, and entrepreneur. His explorations shed new light on a truer, more beautiful, more prudent kind of fiduciary responsibility, a fiduciary responsibility that is not stuck in the industrial concepts of the
nineteenth and twentieth century’s, but which reflects the new economic, social and environmental realities of the 21st century.
Inquiries into the Nature of Slow Money investigates an
essential new strategy for investing in local food systems.
* Could there ever be an alternative stock exchange dedicated to slow, small, and local?
* Could a million American families get their food from CSAs?
* Could a Local Integrated Food Economy back a local currency?
* What if you had to invest 50 percent of your assets within 50 miles of where you live?
Such questions—at the heart of Slow Money—are the first step on our path to a new economy and a new culture. Inquiries into the Nature of Slow Money is a call to action, a call to design new capital markets built not around extraction and consumption, but around preservation and restoration.
Thank you for your time and hopefully you will be able to attend either event.
