This week on Love (and revolution) radio, we speak with Gus Speth of the next system project about a paper he wrote called “The Joyful Economy: A Next System Possibility.” Sign up for our weekly email: http://www.riverasun.com/love-and-revolution-radio/ You can check out Gus’ paper here: http://thenextsystem.org/the-joyful-economy/ James Gustave Speth, who goes by “Gus” and speaks with a soft South Carolina drawl, is nobody’s picture of a radical. His resume is as mainstream and establishment as it gets: environmental advisor to Presidents Carter and Clinton, founder of the Natural Resources Defense Council and World Resources Institute, administrator of the U.N. Development Program, dean of the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, now a professor at Vermont Law School, and distinguished senior fellow at Demos. Time magazine has called him the “ultimate insider.”  Gus Speth: ‘Ultimate insider’ goes radical   Gus Speth calls for a “New Environmentalism” Gus Speth Wikipedia World Resources Institute   Music by: "Love and Revolution" by Diane Patterson and Spirit Radio www.dianepatterson.org   About Your Co-hosts: Sherri Mitchell (Penobscot) is an Indigenous rights attorney, writer and activist who melds traditional life-way teachings into spirit-based movements.
