65: Bennet Zelner – Regenerative Economics

‘My focus now is on how do we transform the economic system so that it fosters connection, that it helps people connect to other people, helps them connect to themselves and helps them connect to the natural world.’

This week Julian talks to regenerative economist Bennet Zelner. While economics is not something that is habitually associated with compassion, in this episode Bennet highlights how it affects us on a day to day level: How our current economic system is draining monetary resources from communities for the benefits of shareholders, and how large the impact of having a different system could be.

Bennet’s work is revolutionary, and his mission of injecting humanity back into economics is well funded and long over due. By changing the way we think about money – as something that benefits many rather than just a few, we can change society.
