Economist Summit →
Just got back from the Economist Sustainability summit. It was really interesting in one of those “are we already completely fucked?” kind of sobering ways. The link takes you to the 3 scenarios that the Economist say are most likely to happen with the stimulus hitting the market. 60% chance for success 30% chance for failure 10% chance of something I’d rather not talk...

Really cool articulation of a company vision and culture wrapped into a sales pitch from Zeus Jones. Really liked the philosophy in the first half of the presentation. The second half is your regular ol’ credentials so you can skip that part.
