Notre Dame University - South Bend and Chicago Campuses - "Fusion Economics Challenges the Chicago School of Economic Thinking"
On March 26, 2015, Laurence Brahm addressed Notre Dame University's Executive Business School concerning Fusion Economics and the importance of social enterprise at the main campus in South Bend Indiana.
On March 27, 2015, in a second address Brahm challenged the concepts of classical economics and neo-liberalism in an address to a full audience at Notre Dame's Chicago campus in Illinois, also speaking to the Executive MBA program. He presented the concepts of "conscientious consumption" as opposed to "conspicuous consumption" and "compassionate capital" in a blunt challenge to the "greed+market=everything" conundrum espoused by the Chicago school of economic thinking that was once led by Milton Friedman.
Professor Leo Burke invited Brahm to present and is currently organizing the Global Cooperative Forum to bring the ideas of Fusion Economics to a broader stage this autumn at Notre Dame University.
