Happy in-between holidays and onto a New Year!
We invite you to a special live event featuring Ms. Nicole Foss, aka Stoneleigh, of The Automatic Earth site.
Ms. Foss travels to Michigan in two weeks time and will be speaking in the Traverse City area at the Traverse Area District Library, in the McGuire Room, – 619 Woodmere, on Thursday, January 5th at 6:00 pm.
Ms. Foss is an international speaker from Ottawa, Canada, who regularly is invited to speak at international conferences on the topics of energy, economics, and environment. This fall, she completed a speaking tour of Europe. This winter she embarks on a tour of Oceania and Asia.
Her talk, titled “A Century of Challenges: How Energy and Finance Intersect”, will address the rollercoaster ride we are on…financial markets are up today and down again tomorrow. But hey, we’re bound to bounce back soon and continue to “grow the economy,” right? Not so, says Nicole Foss, international speaker and educator. She will meet and dialogue with us about some of the most important, and often confusing, challenges that face us. Her clear analysis integrates finance, energy and economy to help us understand why we face a state of crisis and what individuals and communities can do in response.
Her talk appeals to those interested in the future, as she ties together topics of energy, economy, environment and the current events in politics. With her visit to Grand Rapids, her talk will include new discussions of the unfolding economic situation in the USA, Asia and especially Europe; a look at the oil supply situation including the Keystone pipeline proposal; and examination of the consequences of the Japanese nuclear reactor situation and its implications for other reactors throughout the world.
You are invited to this special live event featuring Ms. Foss’s full 90-minute talk, explaining how to effectively prepare and invest for an uncertain and changing future, followed by an additional 60-minute question and answer period.
This event is free, donations of all amounts are appreciated. No one will be turned away due to lack of funds. General seating for the public begins at 5:30 pm. Donations are tax deductible.
