America the Possible: a 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?
