Dear GTN,<br>
Our JULY DISCUSSION will focus on a new GTI Viewpoint: =E2=80=9CCommon Weal=
th Trusts: Structures of Transition.=E2=80=9D In it, Peter Barnes forcefull=
y indicts capitalism as the driver of ecological stress and social disparit=
y (the C-word has barely been mentioned in recent discussions). But rather =
than analysis or critique, Peter=E2=80=99s interests are practical: designi=
ng institutional mechanisms for countering the profit motive and promoting =
equitable sustainability. Specifically, he advances =E2=80=9Ccommon wealth =
trusts=E2=80=9D as an effective means for safeguarding the biosphere, and f=
or sharing the benefits generated from the natural and social resources tha=
t are our collective inheritance.<br>
Please read Peter=E2=80=99s constructive and provocative piece at <a href=

"noreferrer" target=3D"_blank">
ealth-trusts</a>, and share your comments by replying to this message. The =
window of opportunity closes JULY 31.<br>
