Episode Notes

The Lindisfarne Tapes are selected recordings of presentations and conversations at the Lindisfarne Fellows’ meetings. In March of 2013 William Thompson granted permission to the Schumacher Center for a New Economics to transfer the talks from the old reel-to-reel tapes to digital format so that they could be posted online and shared freely. In 2021, the Schumacher Center used the digital audio to create the Lindisfarne Tapes Podcast. Reposting should include acknowledgment of Learn more about the Lindisfarne Tapes here.

Henderson delivered this lecture in 1976 at the Lindisfarne Summer Conference, "A Light Governance for America: The Cultures and Strategies of Decentralization."
