Slow Money—Bringing Money Back to Earth

Woody Tasch

Woody Tasch, Founder and Chairman of Slow Money and Chairman Emeritus of Investors’ Circle, a network of investors focused on the flow capital to sustainability minded companies, joins ZOOM’D to explore an essential new strategy for investing in local food systems and what should come after industrial finance and industrial agriculture. Since the government isn’t too interested and industry is too self-interested, Woody suggests we need to assemble a new type of investment structure and put money directly into sustainable farming. He calls it Slow Money, inspired by the Slow Food movement and by realizing the dizzying speed of money flows in the 21st century has ripped finance away from its moorings in reality. Woody proposes the opposite: invest in food systems down the road, slow the money down, and watch it do things in the real world. Join Woody and ZOOM’D host John Schmidt as they investigate how Slow Money could truly take sustainable agriculture to the next level.
