The Debt of Creativity

In March, I delivered a TED Talk at TEDxNovaScotia on “The Debt of Creativity,” which was about debt, creativity, the radical imagination, Gustav Courbet, student loans, indentured labour, the Paris Commune, globalization and whatever else I could cram into my 15 minutes of fame. I’m not a huge fan of TED talks, but I hope this one is OK.
