Gwendolyn Hallsmith is the Executive Director of Global Community Initiatives, a non-profit organization she founded in 2002, and has just celebrated their 20th anniversary. She is the author of six books on sustainable community and economic development and has worked with communities all over the world to foster caring communities, vibrant local economies, good governance, efficient services, and healthy ecosystems. She founded Vermonters for a New Economy to work on economic solutions at the state level, and the Headwaters Garden and Learning Center, an ecovillage in Cabot, VT.

She and her husband, Michael Taub, sing in a folk duo called The New Economistas. She has a master’s degree in Public Policy from Brown University and did additional graduate work at the University of British Columbia and the Andover Newton Divinity School.

She answers the question of “What Could Possibly Go Right?” with thoughts including:

– Transitioning away from capitalism into new ways of thinking; a “caring economy”

– Alternative examples for money and ownership, such as timebanking, neighborhood caring models, universal basic income, and sharing economy

– The need to make changes in three systems of food, energy and money
