Thought Matters Public Seminar
Thursday 28th May 2015
7.30pm – 9pm
Booth College of Mission Chapel
Do we really live in a ‘rock-star’ economy?
The term economics comes from the Ancient Greek ‘οἰκονομία’ which means housekeeping. Renowned business journalist Rod Oram will explore how our current practice of economics is not helpful for our two most important housekeeping roles – nurturing families and our relationship with our ecosystem, our planetary home. We undervalue the former role, and exploit the latter role. However, economics that can help develop right relationships with each other and the ecosystem will enrich everyone in truly sustainable ways and even enliven our theology.
Rod Oram has 40 years’ experience as an international business journalist. He has worked for various international publications, including the Financial Times of London. He is currently a columnist for the Sunday Star-Times, a regular broadcaster on radio and television and a frequent public speaker on business, economics, innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship in both NZ and global contexts.
This is not one to miss.
