“Our ability to create sustained wealth is directly tied to our ideas, creativity, innovations, faith in the future and most importantly our values,”writes Jonathon Wellum. “An economy not anchored in a strong and flourishing value system cannot remain strong and prosperous.”

Now, with warning bells sounding in the North American marketplace, economic thinking grounded in stability and long-term foresight has never been more important. Join Jonathan Wellum as he reflects on the dangers of “short-termism” in our culture, and its implications and challenges in the emergent geography of the global economy. ¬†Wellum will also look at what a market driven economy rather than a value driven economy means in an era of migrating demographics and large scale foreign ownership.
