Jim will talk about how it is possible to build a regenerative economy by adopting a new form of debt-free money. He will show how some additional market based solutions will create a ‘common wealth’ and restore the global climate.

The Living Systems Economy (LSE) is a biophysical economic model for addressing the climate crisis, the ecological crisis, and unsustainable economic growth. The LSE is based on a thermodynamically plausible dual-economy architecture for managing the global carbon balance. It is underpinned by a new hypothesis for multi-agent systems and is validated against the biology of plant respiration and photosynthesis.

Jim has several patents having to do with electric bicycle and scooter inventions. He is a climate activist and board member of The Climate Center.
