In May of 1991, Institute for Local Self-Reliance’s co-founder David Morris was featured in Minnesota Public Television’s (TPT) Portrait series on prominent Minnesotans. The video is available here in TPT’s video archive. In this interview David speaks about the founding of ILSR and how he originally came to Minnesota, the prominence of ILSR’s work in localizing the economy, and his vision for the future.

Here’s the description from TPT’s series:

Description: Professionally, David Morris is an author, consultant, lecturer and futurist. Politically, he’s been called a libertarian, communist and the Pied Piper of self-reliance. But never a Republican or Democrat.
