- "Fixing our economic systems" - Christopher Ellingsworth Terry McMullen 1:00:55
Chris has a bold belief that he understands the issues with our current economic systems, the ways they are hurting society and the earth, and what needs to be done to fix them.
His work, with his non-profit (The Foundation of New World), is meant to build awareness and drive people to implement these fixes. At the root of the problem, Chris believes we are focusing on the wrong metrics (GDP, currency values, inflation, etc.) which are leading us to overproduce, overwork our employees, and destroy value.
Although many people would agree that our current systems have issues, it is a massive claim to suggest that there is a cure-all to fix them. So Chris and I spent a good bit of time trying to understand his solution and how realistic it was. We also spent time trying to better understand Chris, where this mission came from, and why he has dedicated so much of his life to it.
A more complete bio from Chris-
Christopher Ellingsworth is the Founder and CEO of a non-profit, (https://thefoundationofanewworld.com/), and a veteran. He would like to not only raise awareness about the non-profit and its goals, but also to raise awareness and teach people about a core problem of our society that is overlooked, not understood, and thought to be unsolvable. This core problem is our financial system and its designs that push our society to produce products designed to fail so they can be built again, simultaneously causing us to destroy our own environment reproducing what is planned to be garbage as soon as possible and pushing the majority of humankind into something close to if not, a form of indentured servitude.
