The Occupy Movement can transform the global marketplace, but what would that change look like, and how do we get there from here?

At "Occupy: Reconomy" we believe that business must serve local community needs and put people and planet ahead of profit, and we're making this change happen.   Beginning with pilots for self-reliant marketplaces now being developed in India, the United States, and Costa Rica, we are discussing, designing, and implementing this economic renaissance.

Our core team members from four continents invite anyone interested to join us and be the change you want to see in the world.

I might come over there, but will have to decide what engagement(s) to give up in exchange.  I'd like to see a different discipline in the use of the terms global and planet, especially if our emerging commitment is to local/regional.

You asked "how do we get there from here?"  It's actually the other way:  how does each get here from anywhere?

David, Interesting and I'd like to hear more, either here or at Occupy: Reconomy
We have our own Occupy group because we don't want to dominate another site,

Does anyone know of any other Occupy boards addressing economic solutions?

"Happy Birthday Occupy Wall Street ... thoughts on Year One"

Fifteen years ago, I ran across a book, "100 Most Influential People in History," during one of my dalliances to my local Marin County bookstore. "Influential People" was one man's assessment on exactly that. But how he determined his rankings was the interesting part. They weren't always the reasons you would think. But after thinking about it, they made complete sense. For example:George Washington was ranked in the top 40 of all time. Understandable. But the reason why ... not so much. You…See More

Leadership Ecology

When a Leadership Ecology occurs, a web of relationships emerges revealing each person’s authentic leadership qualities through the transfer of their power to others. When done in a conscious way – a shared collaborative awakening happens.See More
