“People centered” means that control of infrastructure, access, distribution, resources, and co-governance are now on the scale of the individual person. When an individual person with this empowerment reaches their individual carrying capacity to operate, they will tend to reach out to others who are operating like them, and a connection-based network will emerge. Economic development here targets individuals operating as self-employed independents who network together. Independents, small businesses, community groups, working together, with government, higher education, and larger business are the new economic driver. The more control people have an on individual scale of infrastructure, access, distribution, resources, and governance, *and* the more connectivity there is between those people, the that more growth happens in “people centered economic development”.

When control of infrastructure, access, distribution, resources, and co-governance are now on the scale of the individual person, a new way of coopertive co-managing of existing resources, and surpluses of production tends to emerge. That new way of co-managing is known as “Resource Sharing”."

Don't demonize public pensions: Opposing view

Don't demonize public pensions: Opposing view | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
Government workers aren't leeches; they deserve secure retirements. The budget problems of state and local governments have more to do with wasteful corporate subsidies than pensions.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Excerpt:

"Public-sector workers are not leeches. They are firefighters, police officers and teachers who negotiated agreements to defer some compensation until retirement."

I cannot recommend this Bill Moyer episode enough. It will enlighten so many people to what changes took place as a key to cause the economy to be bailed out or most have likely failed a little over four years ago. It is would worth the watch  and a share for even more people to start the new year with their eyes wide open and more fully informed about something as important as our past which if we are not careful also becomes our future again, and again.

 

Please take time to watch thisI cannot recommend this Bill Moyer episode enough.Key players that altered the economic security of all of us, this nation and the world speak out here. The changes discussed here and the Libor scandal have played a huge role in changing the lives of the once strong middle class and harvesting the wealth of nations to the hands of a few.
