Knowledge, Activism and Engagement

What role are you going to take in shaping our future? I started this blog a year and one half ago because I was so fired up about what was going on in the economy, and what we were being ‘told’, that I just had to respond in a more public way. I have written much about the economy, about the markets, and most importantly, about what we can do to change the world for the better. I ask you to make this moment the moment, that you decide to truly engage. Figure out what you are passionate about, what matters to you, what makes you nuts, and get engaged. Really engaged. Our future is not tomorrow, or next week, or next year, it is being shaped this very moment. Speak out, act out and be the change you want to see in the world.

“First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out– because I was not a communist;

Then they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out– because I was not a socialist;

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out– because I was not a trade unionist;

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out– because I was not a Jew;

Then they came for me– and there was no one left to speak out for me.
