Sound Economics

Step into a world where art, music, economics, and environmental awareness come together as the Henry George School of Social Science presents: “Sound Economics: Celebrating Earth Day 2024 Through Art, Music, and Economics.” This innovative event invites you on a journey of exploration and reflection, weaving together classical melodies, contemporary compositions, and powerful visual narratives to shed light on the urgent issue of climate change.

The program begins with a series of musical vignettes that transport audiences through the economic landscapes of climate risk. Experience the timeless melodies of classical music intertwined with the modern interpretations of Stephen Kennedy Murphy’s adaptation of Schubert’s song-cycle “The Miller’s Daughter.”

In tandem with the musical performances, a Climate Change graffiti art exhibition will showcase the bold works of Tony Cruz, renown Bronx graffiti artist. Explore the vibrant colors and dynamic imagery as we confront the economic realities of climate change through the lens of contemporary street art.

The performance will be followed by a discussion with the artists led by Dr. Willi Semmler, a Climate Change specialist (and HGSSS Board member) who fostered the creation of The Steel Miller’s Daughter, with concluding remarks by Prof. Chris Horn on “Climate Risks and Future Ethics.”

Sound Economics” will inspire reflection, dialogue, and action, as we explore the intersection of creativity and economic sustainability in the fight against climate change. Join us as we celebrate Earth Day 2024 by engaging with art, music, and economic discourse.

    Game Night at HGSSS - Freedom Rings!

    Freedom Rings, a board game with Georgist roots while highlighting a different form of capitalism. Through an evolving strategy, the game employs a free market in accessing land and debt as tools needed to achieve your own chosen path. The richest don’t necessarily win and the poorest don’t necessarily lose.

    Freedom Rings was inspired by Steve Taft’s book, “A True Free Market.”

    Taft has worked for decades on Wall Street managing others peoples’ money. Over that time, he delved into economic studies to help him cut through the chatter that drives many investment choices. What he found there is a misbegotten justice and will share his findings with you.
