Group to discuss John Greer book
MARQUETTE - The Transition Marquette County Reading Group will meet at 7 p.m. Thursday in the Conference Room at Peter White Public Library conference room in Marquette to discuss the book "The Wealth of Nature: Economics as if Survival Mattered" by John Michael Greer.
In an "age after abundance" Greer claims that we need to pay special attention to the "primary goods" - those things "necessary for human life and economic activity that are produced not by human beings, but by nature." He warns against the belief that "Nature can be ignored with impunity" as one of the most dangerous "superstitions" of our time.
It is suggested that participants at least have started to read the book. For more information, call 226-3314 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
