Shuman connects local economies at #SFUPS summit
Economist, attorney and award-winning author Michael H. Shuman will discuss his thoughts on economic development at two events (Sept. 30 in Vancouver and Oct. 1 in Victoria), as part of SFU Public Square’s 2013 Community Summit.
Entitled Connected Local Economies, the events will see Shuman set out an alternative set of principle and practices involving a local living economies approach, focusing on local business and a supportive entrepreneurial ecosystem.
A Fellow at the Business Alliance for Local Living Economies (BALLE), Cutting Edge Capital and Post-Carbon Institute, Shuman received the bronze prize from the Independent Publishers Association for best business book in 2006 with his release of The Small-Mart Revolution: How Local Businesses Are Beating the Global Competition.
The Shuman events are part of Charting BC’s Economic Future, the second annual SFU Public Square Community Summit, with events taking place across the province between Sept. 28-Oct. 4, 2013.
