Woody Tasch: Complete Interview

In this complete interview, Author Woody Tasch illustrates the concept of Slow Money. He describes how the current economic crisis evokes fundamental questions about the future of capitalism and provides a unique opportunity to reorganize financial markets for sustainability. He explains the simple notion that if we slow down, we can enjoy life more, and challenges us to bring this concept into financial markets. Woody Tasch is chairman and president of Slow Money, a 501c3 formed in 2008 to catalyze the flow of investment capital to small food enterprises and to promote new principles of fiduciary responsibility to support sustainable agriculture and the emergence of a restorative economy. Woody pioneered the integration of asset management and philanthropic purpose in the 1990s as treasurer of the Jessie Smith Noyes Foundation and was founding chairman of the Community Development Venture Capital Alliance. For ten years, through 2008, he was chairman of Investors’ Circle, a network of angel investors, funds, family offices, and foundations that has invested 3 million in 200 sustainability-promoting ventures and venture funds, since 1992. Woody is the author of Inquiries into the Nature of Slow Money: Investing as if Food, Farms, and Fertility Mattered (Chelsea Green Publishing Company).

    teach us natural boundaries on the use of our resources.
    Jct: The problem isn’t the boundaries on our use of resources, it’s the non-boundaries on our debts? which grow to infinity. We’re not suffering natural scarcity of resources, we’re suffering artificial poverty of money.

    Meet singles owmen hehe rockmycity.info?

  • The most fundamental question of all: What? is The underlying law of nature.

  • Good points. In order to accomplish the goals he is talking about however we would have to abort corporatism and even government. They and their fiat money system has created these unrealistic expectations and a disconnect? from reality. We’ve basically been hooked to the matrix (which we also often call “the grid”) without knowing the fundamentals of it.

    And they, the big corporations in cahoots (by law that established “corporation”) with government are running it. Hence huge wealth divide.
