"The State of Vermont's Cooperative Economy"

Time: 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Location: Waterman Memorial Lounge
Description: Cooperatives comprise a vital and growing element of Vermont's economy, but their contributions are rarely discussed. Indeed, a recent news analysis by the Democracy Collaborative at the University of Maryland found that the cooperative model is severely and systematically under-reported in the business press. To break the silence and provide a sense of the true state of Vermont's cooperative economy, we will be holding a community forum which will include short presentations by representatives of Vermont's diverse co-op sectors, followed by questions from the audience.

"The Economics of Growth Debate"

Time: 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Location: Given E131
Description: We are all aware the economy is still healing in these post-recessionary times. We hear a lot in the news today about waiting for growth to occur in the economy. Meanwhile, all of us are increasingly concerned about job security and availability, government spending and taxation, as well as, rates of savings and investment. As we all wait patiently for economic growth, we must think critically about our current systems, focusing on what works and what should be reconfigured. In thinking critically, we must ask ourselves, "Is economic growth good for people and the environment?"

The Financing the New Economy track will kick off with a debate between neoclassical and ecological economic schools of thought. The neoclassical team, Professors Arthur Woolf and Bill Gibson, will debate the ecological team, Professors Gary Flomenhoft and Josh Farley, on the resolution that 'economic growth is good for people and the environment'. Alfred "Tuna" Snider, the director of the Lawrence Debate Union, will moderate the event. The debate will be part of UVM's Earth Week lineup. All are welcome to witness what is (because of its epic nature) increasingly being refered to as "the Rumble in the Econ Jungle."
