CANCELED: 2020 Ferrando Family Lecture: Yancey Strickler

This Could Be Our Future: Building the Post-Capitalist World
Friday, March 13, 2020
3:00-5:00 PM
Amphitheater Rackham Graduate School (Horace H.) Map
The 2020 Ferrando Lecture has been canceled. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Capitalism as we know it has gotten us this far, but there are serious questions about how much farther it can take us. Inequality, fractured social institutions, and, most importantly, the climate crisis are all huge, systemic challenges that are unlikely to be solved by more economic growth and preserving the status quo. To right the ship, we need a new way to see. In this talk, Yancey Strickler, the cofounder and former CEO of Kickstarter, presents a new vision for defining value and self-interest, and a whole new frontier of work to be done defining and growing a wider spectrum of value. Building on research and ideas shared in his book “This Could Be Our Future: A Manifesto for a More Generous World,” Strickler will make the case that the generation coming up will be the ones to lead us into the post-capitalist era where values pluralism, rather than the monoculture of financial value, will be the new norm for defining the health and success of organizations and society.

Yancey Strickler is the co-founder and former CEO of Kickstarter, and the author of This Could Be Our Future: A Manifesto for a More Generous World (2019).
