Play
Read more
While world leaders wring their hands over forecasts of timid GDP growth, a growing list of visionaries around the world are collaborating to redefine economic objectives in a more meaningful and sustainable way. Former White House advisor Gus Speth has been at the forefront of new economic thought for decades. His prescription for change is not a bunch of economic mumbo-jumbo for boards and bankers. His ideas reach deep into the way we conduct our personal lives.
 
“We need to get beyond this consumerism, to get beyond our hyperventilating lifestyles...and start focusing on the things that really matter to us, to our future, to our children.”

In this 2010 interview, Gus Speth shares new thinking about the purpose of an economy, how climate change was discussed in the Jimmy Carter White House, the successes of environmentalism, and where and how the environmental movement has failed us.

James Gustave Speth, who goes by “Gus” and speaks with a soft South Carolina drawl, is nobody’s picture of a radical. His resume is as mainstream and establishment as it gets: environmental advisor to Presidents Carter and Clinton, founder of the Natural Resources Defense Council and World Resources Institute, administrator of the U.N. Development Program, dean of the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, now a professor at Vermont Law School, and distinguished senior fellow at Demos. Time magazine has called him the “ultimate insider.”  Gus Speth: ‘Ultimate insider’ goes radical

Gus Speth calls for a “New Environmentalism”

Gus Speth explains why the Environmental Movement still matters

Play

Perhaps part of what plagues us when we think about most issues today, is that we tend to see them in very myopic ways.  The world is a more and more complex place, and yet we do the opposite of what we should do.  We too often silo information or categories, or problems.  We don’t always see the connections and therefore we get frustrated, because we can’t seem to solve the problems.  Environmental issues are no different.  My guest, one of the fathers of the environmental movement,  James "Gus" Speth, believes that when we talk about environmentalism, it’s more than the air, or the water, or the earth.  That there is a holistic approach we need to take that is  essential if we want to solve anything.He writes about this in the context of his own history in his memoir Angels by the River.My conversation with Gus Speth:

Gus Speth visits with Joanna Dafoe, Yale F&ES '14, about his latest book America the Possible: Manifesto for a New Economy. Speth describes the need for a new economy to generate lasting and expansive political reform and reflects on his personal theory of change as it has evolved throughout his career. Time Magazine has called Gus Speth the "ultimate insider," but to many students at the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies and Vermont Law School, Professor Speth is a mentor and friend. To that end, the podcast concludes with a discussion related to a student-posed question: what is the best role for young people to help in the new economy transition?
