Gus Speth Envisions America the Possible


Some like to call James Gustave Speth the Yoda of the green movement, but most just know him as Gus. With the dry humility befitting a Jedi, Gus Speth downplays his roles as cofounder of the NRDC, creator the World Resources Institute, administrator of the UN Development Program, chair of environmental quality under Carter, and Dean of the Yale School of Forestry. Speth talks to us about his new book, America the Possible: Roadmap to a New Economy, in which he calls for deep reforms to break our single-minded fetish with economic growth, invoke environmental sanity, and wrest financial power away from Wall Street and back to Main Street.
