In the era of globalization, we have burst the largest credit bubble in human history. Bubbles are effectively gigantic Ponzi schemes -- destined to implode, leading into a period of economic depression. Credit bubbles borrow demand from the future by artificially inflating future worth, but at the cost of a dearth of demand for a long period thereafter. This is why bubbles always end in depression.
Consequently, we need to prepare for hard times ahead. There is much we can do to reduce our over-exposure to vulnerable systems. Facing these hard times is best done as close-knit communities. If we work together to build trust at the local level, we can withstand a great deal of upheaval. The sooner we begin, the better the chances of being as prepared as possible for an uncertain future that will not look like the lives we are anticipating.
If you'd like to learn more about Nicole, KMO interviewed her in January 2012 for the C-Realm Podcast, available at:
Nicole Foss is Senior Editor of The Automatic Earth; she previously wrote under the name Stoneleigh. She and co-author and Editor-in-Chief Raúl Ilargi Meijer have been chronicling and interpreting the ongoing credit crunch as the most pressing aspect of our current multi-faceted predicament. Nicole is also an international speaker on energy and global finance. She has lectured in hundreds of locations across North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand, and has made numerous media appearances in a variety of countries.
Prior to the establishment of TAE, Nicole was editor of The Oil Drum Canada, where she wrote on peak oil and finance. She also ran the Agri-Energy Producers' Association of Ontario, where she focused on farm-based biogas projects, grid connections for renewable energy and feed-In tariff policy development.
She was a research fellow at the Oxford Institute for Energy Studies, specializing in nuclear safety in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union, and conducted research into electricity policy at the EU level. She has significant experience as an environmental consultant. She has a BSc in Biology from Carleton University in Canada, a post-graduate diploma in air and water pollution control, in addition to the Common Professional Examination in Law and an LLM in International Law in Development from the University of Warwick in the UK.
Please note: We strive to make these events self-sustaining, but without sufficient attendance to cover expenses we will have to cancel. Please help us promote this important speaker by forwarding this announcement to others that are interested.
