[123] MLK’s Legacy: End Poverty with a Guaranteed Income

Posted on

Martin Luther King Junior is best known for being a civil rights activist for racial equality. However, the last thing he focused on – right when he was assassinated – was to bring about an economic  answer to millions of people struggling in poverty at the time: a Guaranteed Income. We will be sharing more about this culmination of his life experience and how, after 50 years, an economic answer is still needed. Join us in our discussion with Joe Kou, Yogan Barrientos and your host Marlen Vargas Del Razo

Austerity measures, Debt and the Greece Crisis

Posted on Actualizado enn


Austerity measures, how do they relate to Human Rights, and can they even be justified? How come we give primacy to commercial contracts such as debt obligations, when it should be obvious that Human Rights is the most important part of society and life.

[106] Cooperative Currency: Ithacash

Posted on

Streamed live on 27 Sep 2015

What are the principles behind complementary currencies? How do local currencies contribute to creating trust in a society? How does the existence of Local Currencies change the way we understand and use money? What backs the value of self-issued currencies? How can a local currency solve issues like wealth inequality and uplift the poor? What kind of environmental and social benefits stem from using this new currency system? How can it improve local economies and create solvency while the mainstream economy is failing to do so? We discussed this and more with Scott Morris, founder of Ithacash and AmeriQoin, a monetary innovation that is focused on putting people and the planet before paper wealth.
You are welcome to post questions and comments for Scott in the comment section.

Structural Violence and the Roots of Inequality

Posted on

Structural Violence kills more people every year than terrorism, religious extremism, crime or war. Famine, Poverty, lack of healthcare and social injustice are some of the consequences of it and are entirely preventable. Why are we still not solving the problems that affect our basic living and well-being? Today we will be discussing Structural Violence with Joana Jesus.
