Does something feel unsustainable about the monetary system, economic theory, and the markets?

The 2007 Great Recession revealed the deep instabilities of a profoundly out-of-control economic system, which had been facilitated by complicity among governments, companies, banks, ratings agencies, economists, and theorists.

And, as Hunter Lovins will argue, nothing much has changed.

Hunter Lovins is a lawyer, activist, visionary, environmentalist, teacher, and entrepreneur. She challenges the world’s business and government leaders -- from Davos to the United Nations to General Electric to local municipalities -- to rethink their values, change their processes, update their standards, and make a more sustainable world.

Presented by the MBA in Design Strategy program

About the 2013-14 Graduate Studies Lecture Series

Each lecture is premised on the notion of "signal years." Each invited speaker will address a year of significance in his or her field or practice and link it to related transformations in the broader realms of politics and culture.

Charting a fascinating chronology over a wide range of disciplines, the series takes a close look at past moments that continue to resonate today.
