Author C.M. Fields Attending! "A Life as a Stock"

C.M. Fields, the author of "A Life as a Stock" will be with us to discuss his book!
Book Review:
"A Life as a Stock" is a great read largely because of Fields’ ability to successfully traverse current trends in order to produce a plausible future reality. The story flows fast and it contains somewhat of a moral cautionary note as the reader watches Rick struggle. If we draw parallels between today’s world and Rick’s story we see that as financial success continues to serve as marker of individual achievement we have to take great care to interject humanity into the system or otherwise our lives do essentially become commodities on a stock market. Fields creates a morally ambiguous future… in other words, Fields leaves the values and realities of the future free of moral judgment instead showing the both ends of the spectrum of opportunity. "A Life as a Stock" offers a relevant and captivating glimpse into an imagined future offering the reader the chance to explore innovative perspectives.

    Enjoyed the conversation with Carlos. I think he has some great ideas about the blending of societal needs and capitalism.
