Viviana Jiménez (for Business & Finance) and Terry Rankin (for Philosophy) will cohost the event. Please contact them for more information or details, for questions, concerns, etc. Check the local times for the event.
ABOUT THE EVENT
- In offering this event, neither the cohosts nor the Business & Finance and Philosophy groups, nor DA in general, is offering any form of investment guidance, counsel, advice, etc.
- Primary concerns for discussion are the moral, ethical, and to some extent the practical (if any) role so-called precious metals may or may not have in our time of collapse.
- The aim of the event is to identify any resonance on one hand, or dissonance on the other, between precious metals per se and DA’s principles of compassion, curiosity, and respect, especially relative to the 4Rs and such matters as scarcity, hoarding, speculation, etc.
The event is a Zoom session in an 'open space' context. The topical focus for the discussion concerns the business, financial, and other practical aspects of precious metal investment in our time of social, cultural, institutional, and civilization collapse, in addition to moral, ethical, and other philosophical considerations on the topic.

The session will open with centering in group presence and check-in. The agenda will then be defined by session attendees collectively. The cohosts will facilitate this process, including scheduling the agenda items for discussion. Centering, check-in, and setting the agenda should take about 30-minutes, followed by two 40-minute discussions about the items on the agenda. The number of attendees will guide how that will be done, e.g., using breakout rooms or not. A short break will follow the opening centering and check-in, and another will be taken between the two discussion sessions.
Attendees are not required or expected to have any professional, academic, or other experience or expertise in business, finance, or philosophy in general, nor about precious metals in particular. Event guests who may wish to learn more are invited to consider these related materials for additional perspective.
The day before the event (on 14 September), the Zoom link will be sent to all who select "Going" or "Interested."
