[For those who have the time, I'd certainly be interested in feedback on my remarks.]
The folks at the NPR show “On Point,” read Friedman’s column in which he quoted Gilding and me (see “Is the global economy a Ponzi scheme, are we all Bernie Madoffs, and what comes next? Part 1“).
So if you click here, you can listen to an hour interview starting with
Paul Gilding, former executive director of Greenpeace International and founder of the environmental consulting firm ECOS. He’s now an independent writer, advisor and advocate for issues of sustainability and climate change. He first wrote about the idea of a “Great Disruption” in 2005.
I come on about halfway through, but this is really the first time I have ever elaborated on the Ponzi scheme notion in a talk or interview — so I’d be interested in any feedback.
But Gilding has been explaining his perspective for a number of years, so he is well worth listening to, I think.
