Supported by the Economics Group of the Anthroposophical Society in America, two forthcoming associative economic events with Christopher Houghton Budd, economic and monetary historian, “flying round the world treasurer” and convenor of the Economics Conference of the Goetheanum.

March 10-12, 2023
Hope. Springs. Eternal.
Financial sovereignty and spiritual autonomy are two sides of the one coin. In what sense is the Anthroposophical Society in America an exemplar of this? This event will build on and explore further themes touched on talks given and other material available at http://www.christopherhoughtonbudd.com/hopespringseternal/

March 17-19, 2023
Seed Corn – The Economics of Farming
Based on his book of the same name, can we revisit the Three L’s – land, leasing and liquidity? Alongside the localised futures markets created by CSAs, the seminar will explore how other “associative” approaches to land tenure, farm capitalisation and balance sheet management that can take root in today’s market-driven world. (Book: https://aebookstore.com/publications/chb-collected-works/full-chblist/seed-corn/)

Details are being elaborated, but there will be an attendance fee and accommodation recommendations, but no direct provision. Likewise, meals will be to participants’ accounts using the many good and varied
local eateries. The basic format will be 25-person seminars in research mode with topics born of the main theme but carried mutually.
