As a follow-up to "The Economics of Happiness," on October 27, 2011 WIT hosted a talk by Jim Lee, who is working on creating a new economic paradigm. Jim Lee is a trader, writer, and futurist with an interest in helping people get through the next five years. Jim started his career as a financial planner, and later became an investment manager for high-net worth clients. After his company was purchased by a bank, Jim struck out on his own to focus on his current book project, Resilience: A Path to Fulfillment. He is also a member of the Association of Professional Futurists and a graduate of the Futures Studies program at the University of Houston.
Here is a link to a slideshow with notes of his presentation for WIT, entitled "Resilience: An Upbeat Guide to the End of the World."
