This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Are we focusing on the wrong goal? Are we letting the economy dominate too many corners of our life? Katherine Trebeck's Tedx talk looks at how our economic model has failed us on too many counts and what it might take to start creating an economy that serves people and planet. This includes an introduction to an initiative undertaken by Oxfam in Scotland to create a new measure of Scotland's prosperity that goes beyond pounds and pence to look at what really matters to communities and society.

Katherine Trebeck is an Australian who has somehow found herself based in Scotland for the last nine years. Her journey has encompassed research on how (and why!) mining companies engage with Indigenous communities in outback Australia; assessing when big companies such as retailers or petroleum companies deliver community benefit; and working with a social enterprise engaged in projects to advance sustainability and deliver support for ex-offenders. She has been part of Oxfam since 2010 and involved in a range of roles including analysis of the Scottish economy, policy management for Oxfam's UK team and she has now joined the Global Research Team where she is collaborating with colleagues in Brazil, South Africa, and India to explore what we need for an economy that delivers both social justice and sustainability.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
