Theology of the Land Conference

The presentation was repeated at the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment on 9th April 2013 and was recorded for TV. The 53 minute video is available here: Economics to save our civilisation.

The conferences are being held to open an inter-faith dialogue on property rights in land and their economic, social and spiritual impacts. Daily Pickings was asked to present a secular economic perspective, as laid out in the submission to the Coalition for Economic Justice.
