Thanks to Data Driven Viewpoints for sharing this powerful and concise Video from the New Economics Institute.
There is a reason I support local resilience, community currencies and sustainability – More than ever, Americans need vibrant local economies, because this trend, if continued, will collapse in upon itself sooner or later – no reason for those who build America to starve when the economic collapse comes.
Plant a garden, or buy/barter from someone who does. Choose well-crafted locally made items for gifts, rather than imported frippery. Find the niches left vacant in your neighborhood and fill the need…
Invest in your neighbors and community, rather than far away companies that do nothing to stimulate your local economy –
The top 20% may have all the money, but guess where the lion’s share of manpower, creativity and ingenuity lies? Yup! We’ve got it and it’s time for us to invest in ourselves and each other!
It’s not everyday that a video about wealth inequality goes viral on the internet.
But this myth-shattering video is spreading across the social web, using powerful infographics to make the case that not only is wealth distributed unevenly, but that it is much, much worse than we think.
Here at the New Economics Institute, we are driven by a desire to build a new economy where wealth is distributed equitably. As the video demonstrates, most Americans are on our side. Our task now is to tell the story of a different, more prosperous future and to build the movement to get us there.
After you watch and share the video above, help us grow the movement by making a tax-deductible donation today.
