Innovation, Leadership and the first Dollar


In these times: You can hear a cry for real leadership in our world. Greed, so empowered by media, runs rampant throughout our diverse cultures. Wall Street has failed us. So many within big business have failed us. Politicians, celebrities, and "big" personalities of every kind have failed us.

The people must rise up against greed and stupidity, and call on each other to volunteer to serve and lead.  Ethics, generosity of spirit, integrity and public service must stand for something. Those who create the first dollar are the backbone of a nation.

Who creates the first dollar?  Those who create the first dollar with real value have got to take back the high ground.

Let us all reinforce ourselves by studying and knowing the essential foundations that engender liberty, freedom, and human rights.  Let us study  the essential foundations of capitalism.  Let us understand the real models that open the door to put everyone on a path to economic independence.

As a people, the debate about capitalism should no longer be the domain of economists. We all need to grapple with the first principles of ethics, economics, and government. Virtually overnight globalization is a reality and belief systems are butting against one another, often shredding civility and undermining any inherent ethics and morality.

Each of us needs to engage in the historic debate about economic models. What works? What is good for people? Is this singular focus on "Return to Shareholders" a truncation of capitalism? Do we need to be looking at a more balanced model that includes more than the growth of the bottom line?

In the USA, many citizens are asking two incisive questions:  How do we save the US Dollar? What is the role of government?

Optimistic Point of View: Obama is naive. He has very limited business experience. He's over his head. He does not understand basic economics, history and practice. If this is the greater truth, we all must get involved to repair the damages of this administration, the prior administrations, and an out-of-control Congress. They all must learn basic finance.

A Pessimistic Point of View: Obama is a genius. He knows exactly what he is doing, and his goal is to change the course of the history in the USA by destroying the backbone of capitalism in order to lift up some quasi-Marxist ideology. If this is true, and we surely hope it is not, we all must act quickly; he has not learned history's lessons.   More... Think about it....

Either way the people of the USA need to awaken.
Our television culture -- with Hollywood-stars-in-our-eyes, driven by cliché  after cliché,  with an idealistic need to make everything right with a wave of a Magic Kingdom wand, where-money-grows-on-trees-so-anything-goes, and greed-and-a solipsistic-narcissism reign supreme -- is driving debt so deep that it's killing the goose that laid the golden egg
