                                                                ANU PARTANEN

                                           Learning from the Nordic Countries

Anu Partenan is the author of The Nordic Theory of Everything: In Search of a Better Life. She is a Finnish journalist who lived in the United States for several years, married an American and became a U.S. citizen in 2013. Eventually, the more humane services and compassionate culture of Finland was the lure that inspired Anu and her husband to set up home in Finland. Having lived in both countries, Anu understands the disconnect between what we call "freedom" in the U.S. as it contrasts with the intrinsic freedom inherent in the Nordic countries. There is a reason why Finland has been ranked the happiest country in the world for the past three years, and Anu is ready to tell us about the policies and quality of life that keep their citizens at the pinnacle of happiness and well-being. We can learn from these inspiring policies and lobby our representatives to enact them here.

                                PETER BARNES

                                              Ours: The Case for Universal Property

Peter Barnes
is an entrepreneur, environmentalist and author of Capitalism 3.0, and The People's Land: Who Owns the Sky. His latest book, Ours: The Case for Universal Property, will be published in July. His proposal for a "cap and dividend" program, modeled on the Alaska Permanent Fund, could reduce greenhouse emissions and create a citizens dividend for all Americans. Barnes contends that this proposal is more workable and sustainable than the cap-and-trade policies of the Kyoto Protocol. Barnes is also the founder of Working Assets/Credo, a progressive communications company that gave over $90 million to non-profits last year. In 1995, he was named Socially Responsible Entrepreneur of the year for Northern California. He has served on the boards of Greenpeace, Rainbow Workers' Cooperative, the California Solar Industry Association, and others.
