Thriving on a Basic Income: is it Possible?

Posted on

Basic Income and a Community Created Economy are bold ideas for humanity that promote human welfare, strong interdependent relationships and alternatives to our current individualized and self-interest driven economy. How do you manage your basic needs with a fixed amount of money and create a community-based enterprise at the same time? We will be discussing this and more with our special guest, Jamie Klinger, founder of JoatU and a Basic Income supporter who has firsthand experience and will be sharing the results of this and some of his ongoing projects.

You are welcome to place questions and comments for Jamie in the comment section of this video.

Hidden Charges Exposed

Posted on

Most people think of “hidden charges” as the sneaky little fees hidden on a phone bill, or the extra service charges that a bank will bill out to a customer, or the inflated price of a vehicle after the dealership adds all of the additional items that were not part of the base price of the vehicle. Seldom, if ever, do we consider that there is more to “hidden charges” than the price we pay at the time of purchase. Let’s discuss more about that with Joe Kou in our Live Hangout today – you’re welcome to place any comments or questions throughout our live transmission.

Conspicuous Consumption

Posted on

 

In what ways do we within society participate in conspicuous consumption? How does conspicuous consumption disrupt our personal, social and economic lives? How much do we know and understand of how we decide what to spend our money on? Why do people in every income bracket feel that they are just getting by? Why is household debt at an all-time high? How does the pattern of conspicuous consumption distract us from what is really valuable in our lives? Why are depression and suicide rates so high in developed countries? And how come we are never satisfied? This and much more discussed today with Maite Zamora Moreno and JL Kenney

For context: Thorstein Bunde Veblen’s Conspicuous Consumption: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tGynw…
