19. The Big Idea

September 26 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm

Join Carol Off for a visionary exercise about what the future holds, with statistician Darrell Bricker, economist Jeff Rubin, novelist Catherine Bush, and novelist and memoirist Tessa McWatt. With unprecedented global upheaval, and huge challenges to be addressed – the ongoing health catastrophe of COVID-19, systemic and institutional racism, income instability, the rapaciousness of big business, and the climate crisis – NGOs advocate a just recovery/Green New Deal as a way forward. Do these proposals stand up to analysis? Are they right for us as individuals? As a nation?

Media Sponsor:  
Author Patrons: Mary Ann Higgs, Darrell Bricker; Chez Piggy Restaurant, Catherine Bush; David O’Toole and Julie Leclerc, Tessa McWatt, Virginia Gordon and Lynne Kenny, Jeff Rubin; Ann-Maureen and Peter Owens, Carol Off

7:00 – 8:15 pm ET
