Today Per Fagering and Kurt Liebezeit have a chance to sit down and interview Nicole Foss, editor of the popular financial news aggregation site The Automatic Earth, on the topics of energy and finance. Nicole counts nuclear safety among her many areas of expertise, and although the Fukushima disaster has dropped out of the mainstream news cycle it is still very much an area of concern for her and other experts. Nicole also earned her living in Ontario managing renewable energy policy, and she will explain why the green future that many people aspire to is very difficult to put into practice. Join us for a stimulating 30 minute talk on a wide-ranging series of subjects that range from energy and the economy, human herding behaviors in the market place, the shrinking horizon of trust in our personal lives, and the pathology of the financial elite.
