Jim Lutz, good friend of Larry Weingarten and guest of our show last year suggested we have Marco on our show. Thanks, Jim!! Marco is a founding member of Slow Money Northern California and National Coalition for Community Capital. He is on a mission to talk to us about about finance and investing and its impact on our environments and LOCAL communities. Here’s Marco introducing his upcoming webinar:
"In this first webinar I will tell my personal journey from global finance to Slow Money which began when the story of a forest awoke me to the problems of conventional finance. We will look at an important 15-year study by the UN called “Natural Capital at Risk” showing how we have been using natural capital to subsidize our global economic activity and financial returns. We will then explore the themes and ethos of Slow Money which urges us to “bring money down to Earth” and invest with the ultimate goal of restoring soil fertility. We will then look at the psychology of investing and imagine a portfolio inspired by biophilia and empathy instead of by greed and fear."
