Here are highlights from their conversation. You can also listen at the top of the page.

Interview Highlights

On where the ancestral lands of local tribes are located

Mechoopda is here in Chico. So the city of Chico up to Paradise encompasses the Mechoopda territory. So we kind of calculate that territory based on the peace and friendship treaty that was signed around 1851-1852, here in Chico, California, with John Bidwell.

Acumen


Dave has been thinking a lot lately, like many of us, about the role that market-driven economic policies have on the environment, social justice issues, and the lives of people around the world. So when a copy of Manifesto for A Moral Revolution by Jacqueline Novogratz showed up in the mail, he read it and immediately decided to interview its author. 

 

The conversation between Dave and Jacqueline, the CEO of Acumen, a global community of entrepreneurs and investors literally invested in creating a more just and sustainable world economy covers a wide array of stories of hard-fought successes by heroic individuals living in countries like Pakistan, Uganda, Colombia and, yes, here in the U.S.
