Sponsored by the Economics Group of the Anthroposophical Society in America
7 pm, Monday, 2 October 2023 / Introductory Talk
7 pm, Tuesday, 3 October 2023 / Follow-on Discussion
An in-person event only.
A two-part workshop with Christopher Houghton Budd, economic and monetary historian, participant in the Circle of Treasurers, board member of the Goetheanum Fund Worldwide.
One hundred years ago in the run up to Christmas, Rudolf Steiner encouraged the formation of country societies, out of which the General Society was born. As prompted by Peter Selg,* this is the centenary event we should first be celebrating. Not only celebrating, but reiterating, starting over in terms of current
realities, especially as regards the outer skin of our will and karma – our finances. Intended to ask what is the role of Country Groups in our time and of the Anthroposophical Society in America in particular, this is part of a tour of its Branches to commemorate the 1923 founding of Country Societies prior to the refounding of the Anthroposophical Society.
Key themes include:
– The first one hundred years
– Two bodies that a third may be
– The Wild, Willed West! What, where, and why is that?
– Rudolf Steiner’s Financial Genius and Milton Friedman’s ‘own lights’ theory
– Will we drive our denial of spirit out of economic life?
Christopher Houghton Budd is an economic and monetary historian, participant in the Circle of Treasurers, board member of the Goetheanum Fund Worldwide.
Cost: $50 for both sessions. An in-person event only. Limited seating.
