Recording: How to use Economics for Good Global Citizenship, Mar 15, 2023

How can we empower humanity to thrive through economic models and principles?
Economics is a powerful tool to influence positive change at scale. What are the negative and destructive impacts to life, and what are positives that serve to improve well-being, human happiness and equality? How can we as global citizens adjust our focus to help the world?
See micro and macroeconomic principles through a different lens: “the dark” features of toxic efficiency, scarcity, game theory and GDP, and “the light” in GHI, increased time to justice, positive productivity in governments and bi-partisan policy.
Explore the meaning we attach to 'value' and how we can use economics to advocate for good global citizenship that aligns for society's common goals, inclusive of the welfare of every citizen.
