Scholars’ Circle – Secret Heroes -/- Ownership Revolution -/- Green Gone Wrong – July 2, 2017

First, secret heroes. We know the role of presidents and other leaders in shaping history, however we hear little about the unsung heroes; many who have risked their lives to liberate and rescue others. Who might some of those secret heroes be? We are joined by Paul Martin author of Secret Heroes: Everyday Americans Who Shaped Our World. [ dur: 14 mins. ]

New sustainable ownership models are emerging with groups, unions, and entire communities coming together to co-own their workplaces, homes, and sources of credit. We speak with Marjory Kelly, author of Owning Our Future: The Emerging Ownership Revolutions. [ dur: 30 mins. ]

Finally, are some green solutions unhelpful for the environment or worse, do they actually harm it? Heather Rogers is the author of Green Gone Wrong: How Our Economy Is Undermining the Environmental Revolution. [ dur: 14 mins. ]

This program is produced with generous contribution from Ankine Aghassian, Melissa Chiprin, Tim Page, Mike Hurst and Sudd Dongre.
