Before you head into work this Wednesday, drop into the NYC discussion cafe, the Breakfast Club, to enjoy conversation and a cup of coffee!

The topic of discussion this week will be ECONOMICS.

Some food for thought from the Breakfast Club blog:

Have a watch of this short film by Ian MacKenzie, which highlights just a few ideas Charles Eisenstein (who authored the book “Sacred Economics”) has to share.

Questions to discuss:

1] While we might deem some of his ideas rather ‘dreamy’ or ‘they-look-good-on-paper’ — see if any of the video resonates with you — we encourage you to bring your own questions and/or solutions to the table bright and early this Wednesday morning

2] Where/how do artists and culture fit into today’s economic structure?

3] Can we do better with the economics in 2014; what are ideas for improvement?
