Chuckanut Radio Hour with Special Guest Ryan Coonerty, The Rise of the Naked Economy
Join us for a special episode of the Chuckanut Radio Hour, hosted at Bellewood Acres. Our special guest for our September show is Ryan Coonerty for his book The Rise of the Naked Economy. Coonerty will be interviewed by Derek Long, Executive Director of Sustainable Connections. The book shows readers how to achieve both personal and professional success in an economy that does not guarantee lifetime employment. From the recently graduated to the recently laid off, Coonerty covers how the rise in non-traditional employment calls for a new infrastructure, strategy, and attitude for workers, companies, and communities alike. Through interviews with the people, companies, and policymakers who are leading the change and already profiting from it, The Rise of the Naked Economy provides an optimistic, humorous, and inspirational vision for readers who want reclaim their lives and livelihoods.
Ryan Coonerty is the co-founder and Chief Strategist for NextSpace. He served two terms as the Mayor of Santa Cruz, California and was selected by the Aspen Institute as "one of the nation's most promising young leaders." Ryan teaches constitutional law at the University of California, Santa Cruz and is the author of Etched in Stone: Enduring Words from Our Nation's Monuments.
