WHAT: This slide show, by the Forum on Geonomics' Jeffrey Smith, looks at society’s spending for nature. This "rent" triggers the business cycle, yet could reward stewardship. Some places have shared it (Alaska's oil dividend), others replaced costly taxes. See a new view of Earth's worth.

WHERE: Urban Center, Room 270, 506 S.W. Mill St., Portland, OR

COST: Free and open to the public.
