CCCBE Speaker Series  – Dr. Marvin Brown

A Civic Economy that Provides for Everyone

Thursday, February 27th, 4:00 to 5:00 pm

David Strong Building, C013
 
As we consider how to design ways of providing for neighbours in our local communities and strangers in our global networks, we need to re-think the relationship between property ownership and civic membership.  Thinking of civic membership as the foundation for property ownership, instead of the other way around, Dr. Brown will try to justify this choice in his presentation and demonstrate how such a civic economy might function.
 
Dr. Marvin T. Brown, is a professor of organizational ethics and business in the Philosophy department at the University of San Francisco.  His latest book is Civilizing the Economy: A New Economics of Provision  Books will be available for sale.  
 
This CCCBE Speaker Series presentation is free & open to the public with support from Central 1 Credit Union, The Co-operators, Federated Co-operatives Limited and the Gustavson School of Business.   Registration is not required.
