This may also explain how and why gangs behave as they do. Might this be a micro theory to explain the underground economy. Assymetric economics create institutional pressure to innovate (including in criminal ways).

Shiraz Visinko's insight:

I LOVE this! An economy based on trust in the humanity of humans?The idea is an incredible reversal of patriarchal mode of economy that MAKES people pay. Perhaps a creating ways for LETTING people pay will be a complete game-changer.  Your dose of hope for today!

Empathy, or, seeing from within | Savage Minds

Empathy, or, seeing from within | Savage Minds | Wealth, Health, Poverty and Consumption | Scoop.it

Empathy: is kind of like seeing as an artist would the shape and essence of being. Naming it, as Van Heekeren (2012) suggests she does, perhaps should be the new intention or method of anthropology which Appadurai (1996) claims is important for the evolution of anthropology in "Global Ethnoscapes".

They are called ngangkari and they are Aboriginal traditional healers whose work is becoming increasingly recognised the modern health arena

"I hope you continue you work in a law-abiding way."
Shiraz Visinko's insight:

If these claims are true then Wells Fargo needs to be brought to justice. These loan practices are sound very racist and extremely shady. I hope now the defendants can now be free to pursue justice.

International Development - FAO: Rio+20 is ‘golden opportunity’ to boost global food security efforts

International Development - FAO: Rio+20 is ‘golden opportunity’ to boost global food security efforts | Wealth, Health, Poverty and Consumption | Scoop.it

The U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization is pushing to put the “quest for food security” at the heart of the Rio+20 conference, whose outcome document remains under negotiations. It must also be put under deep scrutiny. Food security is an oft used trope which has thus far, despite outward efforts been thwarted by structural and affective issues which must not remain unaddressed.
