Renowned Green Economist Molly Scott Cato will be visiting Swansea on Tuesday next (1 November)

How Green Economics could transform Wales.

Dr Scott Cato will be speaking at a public meeting in The Environment Centre, Pier Street, Swansea, SA1 1RY at 7:30 PM on Tuesday 1 November. Entry is free and everyone is welcome.

Molly Scott Cato is a green economist and expert in the social economy. She specialises in the issues of trade, work, money and cooperatives. She is a Reader in Green Economics at the Cardiff School of Management and Director of Wales Institute for Research into Co-operatives.

She studied Politics, Philosophy and Economics in Oxford, and after working in the publishing industry, earned her PhD from the University of Wales, Aberystwyth with a thesis on employment policy in the South Wales Valleys.

Her publications include Seven Myths About Work (1996), Green Economics: Beyond Supply and Demand to Meeting Peoples Needs (1999 co-edited) and Market, Schmarket: Building the Post-Capitalist Economy (2006).

Her report on the structure of government specialist science advice committees, I Dont Know Much About Science, apparently influenced the structure of the government committee examining the effects of low-level radiation. Another report in 2002 for the Association of Green Councillors was titled Using Best Value to Encourage Green Procurement in Local Authorities.

Keith M Ross of Swansea Green Party said, Thanks to green thinkers like Molly Scott Cato, the Green Party is able to offer a real alternative to the failed economic policies of the traditional parties.

Were very pleased to have Molly speaking in Swansea against the background of the governments proposed Localism bill a subject she is well versed in.
