Dear Kevin This is interesting ... I have been saying for quite a long time that big nations are too big to govern effectively, and the community is a better reporting unit for the metrics and management of the complex socio-enviro-economic system. This event in Cincinnati seems to be a validation of this idea. Other validation is that Cities are embracing the change that we need faster than nations ... in large pat because they are on the front line of all sorts of very big changes, not least of which is the massive migration from rural areas to the cities. I am fascinated by the work being done by the Ecological Sequestration Trust (TEST) founded by Peter Head. The TEST initiative is focused on data and modelling. I want to see an initiative like this also embrace the idea of True Value Accounting. I wish I could get to Cincinnati ... but good to know about it anyway Peter ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Create a local living economy that works for all ... details inside.

Our mailing address is: Mission Hub, LLC 901 Mission St firstname.lastname@example.org San Francisco, CA 94103 We need an alternative story of what the economy is actually for. While the conquests of Wall Street still dominate headlines there are incredible reasons for hope rising up from Main Streets all over North America. Multiple movements are converging that emphasize buying, eating, and investing in the local. It’s here at the neighborhood level - the most local economy, where we can see the impact, hear the stories, and share best practices at a more relational level. Along with luminaries like Dr. Walter Brueggemann, Peter Block, Amy Cortese, Michael Schuman and many more, we invite you to join us this November 17-18th in Cincinnati. Together let’s invest our time, resources, and imagination towards accelerating the flow of capital into our neighborhoods, let’s live into an alternative story.
