Time Banking

Peter pointed me to this one from

Edgar Cahn, ‘I think we’re learning that money isn’t what we thought it was, that bankers aren’t what we thought they were, and that the monetary system is not enabling us to get to where we need to get to,’ he says. ‘Money that depends upon repayment of interest requires that we have to keep producing more and more in a world that’s having to learn how to become sustainable.’

And this,

A Different Occupation

I realize what I am about to post may not seem directly related to the Occupy movement - BUT for me it is.  

This morning I watched a video, "No More Shooting and Crying"  that affirms all that I think about why war and military occupation is not the answer. 

I appreciate that these young people in Israel have found a way to share the message of what war and military occupation…

Charlie Rose Discussion about Wall Street

"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.
