The New Economics Study Sessions – October/November 2017
About the study sessions
Mondays & Wednesdays, 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm Pacific Time, from October 30 through November 15. Participants will discuss Dr. W. Edwards Deming’s last book, The New Economics. The course is open to all – repeat participants and first timers are equally welcome.
About the series
We will read two chapters (or so) before each of six sessions then connect to share ideas about what we have read.
Not all participants are able to join all six sessions. Participating more is better, but you are welcome to attend as your schedule allows.
At each session of the series, we will have supplemental information aimed at provoking additional thought.
How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
