LUCI Member , Niki Okuk, gives a TED talk at TEDx Crenshaw October 2016. Today it was released to the public.
Title of Talk: Business/Entrepreneurship
How does this fit in with our theme: This years TedxCrenshaw is about taking stock and getting a clear view of our community’s strengths and weaknesses. Our economy is owned by people that do not live in our communities, such as stock market investors and CEO’s of major corporations. Corporate employment pushes down wages and externalizes cost to achieve ever increasing profits. Those profits go out of our community to share holders and CEO’s that live all around the world, robbing our local tax pool as well as impoverishing our workers. Corporate employment is pumping wealth out of our communities. To affect real change to the social problems in our communities, we need a fundamental shift in the business paradigm.
