Charles Hall on the biophysical economy & Bill Schubart on resiliency in hard times


November 14, 2011

Professors Charles Hall and Kent Klitgaard's new book is Energy and the Wealth of Nations: Understanding the Biophysical Economy. Hall explained what the biophysical costs of energy are, and why they're more important than the price. He revealed how his understanding of peak oil helped him plan in 1970 a successful retirement investment strategy that paid off in 2008.

This Wednesday, November 16 is the fall conference of Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility, with the them, "Resiliency in Uncertain Times." VBSR executive director Andrea Cohen talked about why they chose the theme even before Tropical Storm Irene hit the state, and author and entrepreneur Bill Schubart discussed his take on resiliency. Schubart will moderate a panel on the theme Wednesday morning.>

Carl Etnier hosted.
