"Putting the Pieces Back Together: Reintegrating People, the Environment and the Economy

The modern world is fragmented. The current economy is divorced from human concerns. People are separated from nature. Environmental considerations are at odds with economic reality. The results of this fragmentation include poverty, corruption, pollution, income inequality, depression, crime, anxiety and social breakdown. In this talk, Dr. Marci Rossell will put our boom and bust economy into historical context and discuss restoring the traditional connections between people, the environment and the economy.

Marci Rossell, PhD is a market economist. Dr. Rossell is the former chief economist for CNBC. She began her career at the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas and is currently a popular speaker on the economy, financial issues and globalization.
