You are what you invest.
Here’s the million-dollar question: Do you own McDonald’s? Before you shake your head in disgust, think about your portfolio and where your money is. Through mutual funds or our 401Ks, many of us unknowingly invest in companies that don’t share our values. Woody Tasch is working to change the system and how we invest, for the better of our economy, our conscience, and the planet.
This is about putting your money where your HEART (and brain) is…it’s called the Slow Money movement and it just might change the world.
As founder of Slow Money, Tasch seeks to connect investors and donors who are committed to investing in local food systems. In this interview he reads from his fantastic book, Inquiries into the Nature of Slow Money: Investing as if Food, Farms and Fertility Mattered. Learn about triple bottom line investing (people, planet, profits), why economic change requires creativity and imagination, and why we (yes, you and I) have the power to create a new paradigm of economic growth with our hearts, minds and portfolios.
Tune in and hear why Woody Tasch is a hero for our times.
