 More about Marjorie Kelly and her talk
 Marjorie Kelly will kick off the day with highlights of flourishing
 businesses and institutions around the world that can withstand the
 challenges that fluctuations in the international markets pose to local
 economies. Kelly is the former editor of Business Ethics magazine and as
 co-founder of Tellus Institutes Corporation 20/20, she has brought
 together
 hundreds of leaders from business, finance, labor, government, law, and
 civil society to explore creating new ways of doing societal good while
 building thriving businesses.
 
 Quote from Marjorie Kelly
 As long as businesses are set up to focus exclusively on maximizing
 financial income for the few, our economy will be locked into endless
 growth
 and widening inequality.  Now people are experimenting with new forms of
 ownership aimed at creating conditions for all of life to thrive for many
 generations to come.  These designs may hold the key to the deep
 transformation our civilization needs.
