Tonight's guest, Ben Schiller is a writer for Co.Exist, and also contributes to the FT and Yale e360.  During Ben's first appearance on the program we discussed the Circular Economy and Floow2.  One question we discussed is how the forces of capitalism which drive organizations to get products/services to the marketplace faster and cheaper can co-exist with the idea of a Circular Economy.

Today’s conversation will focus on organizations and marketplaces designed around shared purposes which help facilitate more equitable exchanges between participants.  We will explore how these types of organizations and marketplaces can be one of the bridges that connect Capitalism and a Circular Economy.

Some of Ben’s articles that we'll discuss are:
