The first principle of that movement is to “bring money back down to earth.” It calls for investing in local farms and food products. On today's program we are going to consider the <a href="http://slowmoneync.org/" target="_blank">Slow Money movement in North Carolina</a> and ask this question: what if we applied the principles of Slow Money to things beyond food and farms? What happens when we create a system that values businesses that create healthy local economies and environments?</p><p> Tue, 17 Apr 2012 14:45:00 +0000 Frank Stasio & Susan Davis 4954 at http://wunc.org From Slow Money to Impact Investing
