  • Presentation: Quakers were originally much more likely to be tradespeople than professionals, academics, teachers, etc. They developed honest practices such as charging everyone a publicly announced price that led them to be successful. We are asking some Friends who run businesses or have thoughts on Friends and the business world to lead a discussion of what all Quakers need to know about the world of commerce, and how our practices and values are relevant today. A few people in Ann Arbor who are involved in businesses have been asked (Paul and Claire Tinkerhess, Marilyn Churchill), and we would welcome thoughts by others who might have things to say.
