Hi  <<First Name>>,

Can you remember an act of generosity you witnessed, received or offered? Pause for a moment and try to vividly recall it in your mind.

How did it make you feel? How do you feel now just by remembering it?

When I was starting Essential Knowledge for Transition in 2012 I was contacted by Rebekkah Hilgraves, who learned of my work through the Transition movement. I had built a very rudimentary website for EK4T and Rebekkah offered to build me a better one as a way to support my effort to bring about a more compassionate and caring society through knowledge sharing. 

I was touched by her generosity and thrilled to have a professionally looking website which served me for five years. 

Rebekkah's gesture was for me a glimpse into the better world we are striving to bring about where our humanity is reaffirmed in our daily caring for each other outside the mediation of the marketplace.

It is not a coincidence that Rebekkah, besides being a skilled technologist, is an artist and talented singer. Artists are more attuned to the beauty of the gift exchange economy as they pursue the elusive balance between making a living and maintaining the integrity of expression of their natural artistic and creative gifts. 

The website Rebekkah built in 2012 served me for a good five years and over that time acted as a continuous reminder of that great gesture of generosity - a gift that kept on giving as I felt the warmth and caring reverberating from Rebekkah's offering of her time and talent.   

Thank you Rebekkah!

If you want to learn more about Rebekkah and her many talents here are a few websites she built for her various activities and businesses.

This month I am launching my new website reflecting the evolution of EK4T over the last five years and the current offerings - talks and guest lectures, workshops, webinars and aligned money coaching. 

Please let me know what you think of the new look and feel. I would welcome your comments and suggestions for improvements. 

On a separate topic, as the US Congress is planning to take on the issue of tax reform, the old tired debate about the debt ceiling will again come up. The whole conversation about government debt and the importance for the government to "live within its means" reveals a profound misunderstanding of how the economy actually works. 

You might want to review the blog I wrote last June on this topic Let's Talk About the Economy

Here is a little taste....

There are two misconceptions about the economy I would like to dispel.

The first has to do with the government being constrained like a family by its budget and having to spend no more than it brings in.

The second has to do with government debt and how important it is to reduce it.

Both concepts reveal a complete ignorance of basic macroeconomics and make possible the abomination of “austerity” – a brutal and counterproductive economic policy.

Enjoy the Spring!
