Reviews of Dan


Clarence received session of Ask an Activist from Dan
Feb 14, 2019
Met with Dan twice in an "online" session. Unfortunately I was not able to have as much time for the second, due to some connectivity issues. However,... the insight he has and the theoretical background he has I consider very valuable. Thank you, Dan, for taking the time to talk with me. I hope that we are able to have several more of these discussions to flesh out some of these ideas just a little bit more. Thank you.show more
Michelle received session of Radical Economics/Politics lecture from Dan
Feb 09, 2021
Such a wonderful introduction to time banking and radical economics. Dan knows his stuff (and his history). His talk delivered, and his well time wit,... made it memorable. If you want to know more about radical economics, or interested in any of his other deal packages, go ahead and propose an exchange! (I can't wait to take him up on his deals for politics!). Highly recommend.show more
