episode 138: Charles Eisenstein "Questioning Quantification" + Bretton Woods@75 Keynote

Playing for Team Human today, Author and Gift Economy Advocate, Charles Eisenstein.
Charles joins Team Human to share how he believes quantification is changing the ways we think about climate, ecology and human beings. Less of an interview, this informal conversation was recorded at Bretton Woods@75 where Charles and Douglas were both speakers. They discuss the role of work in our life and envision some of the new ways in which economic systems might be structured so as to put the human at the center.
This week’s Team Human also includes a monologue recorded live from Bretton Woods@75.
