New Economy Radio Commentaries

As a precursor to New Economy Week 2013, we teamed up with Vermont Public Radio to air a series of commentaries on the New Economy in Vermont. Each of the four commentaries featured a New Economy leader speaking about one inspiring aspect of the New Economy movement. Their views and stories touched on themes such as innovation in business, investing locally, and promoting and measuring true wellbeing. We invite you to explore the full commentaries below.


Will Raap:

Measuring Economic Success




Ellen Kahler:

Food and Energy Innovation







Gwendolyn Hallsmith:
