Jason Ross: “Vernadsky’s Economic Space and Time: The Anti-Entropy of the Noösphere”
Executive Director, The LaRouche Organization

SI—Vladimir Vernadsky, in developing the concept of the noösphere, in essence created a unique approach to physical economics, strikingly similar to LaRouche’s method of physical economy, which utilizes chemistry and rates of physical output and input of production as necessary measurements, rather than the non-specific monetarist approach. The development and discovery of new resources, and new approaches to harnessing and distributing resources to effectively increase the productive output of an economy, are a keystone of this approach. Water management, and the development of corridors of energy and transportation are also fundamental. Speakers in this panel will discuss powerful proposals in those fields and discuss new discoveries about the nature of water itself, and its relationship to the biosphere and noösphere, and the broader issues of climate in the context of the solar system and galaxy.

Panel 2: 2 pm – 5 pm
