NEED maintains a catolog of presentations for use by Delegation members. The presentations are also generally available to the public. When Delegation members give presentations under the NEED banner, their presentation is posted on this website. Click the "Presentation Catalog" for raw presentations and a document with a set of references for each presentation. Click the "Sample Presentations" button for a list of presentations given under the NEED banner.
The process for assembling presentations is generally led by a single individual. Oversight of a presentation on any specific topic will be achieved by calling on members of the Advisory Board who have some expertise in the field. The result of this effort will be two pieces of material: a PowerPoint presentation and a supporting document. The supporting document will provide a narrative for the presentation as well as a list of references and source materials for the contents of the slides.
The presentations developed by NEED undergo a rigorous review process to ensure that they adhere to the following core principles:
NEED presentations go through a rigorous review process before they are made available to the general public or to delegates for their use in speaking engagements. Here is an outline of the review process:
Once there is a general consensus within the NEED community that the presentation passes muster, it will be made available to the delegates as source material for public presentations by any and all NEED delegates and Board members.
Delegates making presentations and using the NEED name will be asked to adhere closely to the spirit of the NEED presentation. That spirit is one of presenting consensus where there is a demonstrated consensus among economists and outlining the various opposing views on the topic where there is no consensus. The delegates will be required to send a copy of their given presentations back to NEED for posting on the NEED website.
