Guest: Wiliam Powers

 

William Powers new book, Dispatches From The Sweet Life, is an exploration into living a life in harmony. For Powers and his family, means a life far from the American consumerist dream.

Powers has worked for more than 20 years in development aid and conservation in Latin America, Africa, and North America. From 2002 to 2004 he managed a community project in the Bolivian Amazon that won a  prize for environmental innovation from Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government.

His essays, commentaries and articles have appeared in the New York Times,The Washington Post,the Atlantic and Slate. He is the author of 4 books -including New Slow City and Twelve by Twelve.  Powers has worked at the World Bank and holds international relations degrees from Brown and Georgetown.

As a third-generation New Yorker, Powers is familiar with the lure of bright lights and big cities. That's why Powers spent two decades exploring the American culture of speed and its alternatives in some fifty countries around the world.  Powers is a senior fellow at the World Policy Institute and an adjunct faculty member at New York University.
