What If...we moved to a sustainable economy/society?

Date: 

Tuesday, April 15, 2014 - 2:00pm to 3:30pm

Location: 

Iowa City Public Library, Meeting Room A

The University of Iowa Public Policy Center invites you to join us for a series of public forums where our researchers will examine different hypothetical scenarios and their unitended consequences, and present their relevant research.  The information will be presented briefly and will be followed, we hope by lively public discussion!

The public is invited to actively engage in this town hall-style debate, in which we will examine current and potential alternatives to the state of the economy, environment and society with regards to the role economics plays in shaping the future.  We will examine the impact of our current paradigm on income distribution, environmental impact and consumption and what those consequences can be and if there exist alternative paths.
