Neighbors, visitors, guests, and then cohabitant residents (NVGC)
A goal for this web site, not yet begun, is to make this site an interactive forums with weblog for all of us to use in dialog about economics. The various NVGC, as part of the goal of this site, will likely have a wide range of educations. Therefore, the site will speak the social activist and the layperson via a distillation to summary, which will simplify the research produced largely by academia. The prime directive of this is to facilitate a media for all voices and stories of experience, which have to be respected, heard and listen to here at the table of economics, if, as a species, we want peace and a meaningful future.
