The Future of Ownership in the Bay Area: Where We Live, Work, & Invest
In America, wealth inequality is growing and the opportunity gap has only worsened since the Great Recession. The lack of improvement tells us that current economic systems are designed to perpetuate this imbalance.
Now is the time to uplift organizations, opportunities, and ideas that flip around the status quo. Each of us as citizens and participants in the economy have choices we can make that can support a movement to create different outcomes. How do we design enterprises to spread — rather than concentrate — wealth and power? How can everyday people take ownership, both figuratively and literally, over land, housing, enterprises, and other assets core to the vitality of our communities? Our speakers will present and discuss unique approaches to housing, shopping, business and careers, and investment, highlighting ways that innovative ownership models can transform the economy.
