Much of what gives value to our lives falls outside current economic discourse. But economics is the most powerful story around these days and its language has permeated much of who we think we are and what we think we are capable of.
What would happen if we transformed economic language so that it was fit to describe the things we really value? Is such a thing even possible?
In this talk we explore the power of words to shape what we believe is (im)possible, how the old economic story has outlived its time, and how choosing our words well may be crucial in birthing a new cultural and economic paradigm.
