[quote:Anonymous Coward 3131543:MV85ODA3ODlfMzQ2MDc3MzNfRkMzMUQzNzE=] Bernard Lietaer and Margrit Kennedy of Germany; Lietaer taught at the University of California so his English is fairly good. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W6lfWQ2TLlU (100 minutes - audio improves after 2.5 minutes) Blurb: "As we witness the turmoil in Europe around the single currency and the search for solutions, few people are better equipped than economist, systems thinker and currency designer Bernard Lietaer, to shed light on the crisis and to share his vision for New Money For A New World. Co-designer and implementer of the convergence mechanism to the Euro, Bernard was our keynote speaker at an event hosted by the Women's Network for a Sustainable Future and the Earth Institute on Wednesday evening at 6:30pm, November 30, 2011 at the Altschul Auditorium in Columbia University's International Affairs Building. A long time proponent of currency innovations and monetary diversity, Bernard took us on a journey through the history of money. He demonstrated how our obsession with the monopoly of our centuries old monetary system has fostered instability as well as societal and ecological breakdown. In advocating diversity both in scale and type in our monetary ecology, Bernard showcased several innovative solutions, including examples of rethinking money already in play, that can "stop the juggernaut towards global self-destruction." As a monetary expert, Bernard has studied and worked in this field for more than 30 years in an unusually broad range of capacities: as a Central Banker, a currency fund manager, a university professor, and a consultant to governments in numerous countries, multinational corporations, and community organizations. He served as president of the Electronic Payment System at the National Bank of Belgium (the Belgium Central Bank) and today consults with governments and central banks across the world. He is the author of The Future of Money, co-author of New Money For A New World (forthcoming from Qiterra Press) with Stefan Belgin and co-author of Creating Human Wealth, published last month which talks about creating motivational currencies at local levels to grow local economies and to create jobs." ************************** More information on Bernard Lietaer and his works can be found at http://www.lietaer.com and at http://www.money-sustainability.net/ The you tube video linked at the top has poor audio for the first 2.5 minutes after which the problem is fixed. The whole video is 100 minutes long. Lietaer is well connected and has spoken at many events and in multiple languages. Here is a 18.75 minuted TEDx talk in Berlin: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nORI8r3JIyw Search for more: http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=Bernard+Lietaer Charles Eisenstein has picked up on some of Lietaer's ideas and presents them with his unique perspective: http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=Charles+Eisenstein Professor Margrit Kennedy is a contemporary of Lietaer, has written a short and easily read book Interest and Inflation Free Money: http://userpage.fu-berlin.de/~roehrigw/kennedy/english/ Here is a 20 page piece from Kennedy which is over 13 megabytes because of color chart presentations that I suspect were developed as portions of speech presentations. http://doors8delhi.doorsofperception.com/presentationspdf/margritkennedy.pdf Jem Blendell of England has picked up the same ideas from Leitaer and Kennedy...
