The Colours of Money - An Introduction to Associative Economics

with Christopher Houghton Budd, 18-19 September 2012, Goetheanum, near Basel, Switzerland

Understanding money has never been more important than today. Whether it be unfair trade, widespread poverty, burgeoning debt or bank bail-outs, modern life is marked by a ceaseless and unhealthy chase after money, which then acts more as our master than our servant. Whether locally or globally, can we understand and use money in ways that enable competition to give way to more cooperative ways of doing business? Derived from Rudolf Steiner’s contribution to economic and monetary history, The Colours of Money© seminar looks at the history and purpose of money and how it can be the main instrument for bringing about real and lasting change in our economic circumstances. Grounded in associative economics, the seminar ranges from the problems of small businesses to larger questions of global finance and the power of corporations. Open to all and offering a radical yet concrete and in-depth approach to money in our times, the seminar is presented using PowerPointPlus, a.k.a coloured chalk imagery on black paper.
