Marco Vangelisti

Marco Vangelisti

I have seen Marco’s presentation and I’m really encouraging you to come hear Marco speak. You will be astonished at the information he is going to present about our finance system. The great thing is, he will also tell you how you can make a POSITIVE impact with your own actions going forward.

Marco will talk about what happened when he decided to divest all of his wall street investments and put them into the local economy, and what he knows about the wall street reality.

In the face of increasing economic instability, building a resilient, enduring and equitable local economy is vital. To achieve this, we need to understand the current economic system, how it affects our communities and ways to transform it. We also need to understand how the monetary, banking and financial systems work and their central role in the functioning of the economy.
