    I have never really thought about the future until Until two months
    ago an announcement was made at our school about one girl. She
    was seriously ill. She had cancer. A very aggressive form of it. The
    doctors in our country did everything they could for her. Still she was
    dying. Her only hope was the treatment that she could get in
    Germany. She needed minimum of 50 thousand Euros to be able to
    go and soon. The price of the human life. It’s a lot of money here. So
    her parents started raising funds wherever they could and
    eventually came to our school. Nowadays we have almost got used
    to such stories because after the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Station accident the rate of cancer
    among children in Belarus has increased 13 times. This power station is situated almost at the
    boarder of our Republic and right after the accident the wind was blowing north and carrying
    radioactive clouds in our direction So there are articles in newspapers, announcements on TV,
    Internet about kids dying of cancer who need urgent help.

    My organization, ISEC—the International Society for Ecology and Culture—has been promoting economic localization for more than three decades: not as an ‘add-on’ to business as usual, but as a deep-rooted and systemic alternative. As we see it, communism, socialism and today’s corporate capitalism all suffer the same fundamental—and, ultimately, fatal—flaws. They are all top-down, centralized, ‘one-size-fits-all’ systems that, to a greater or lesser extent, both suppress the best of what is human and deny the first law of nature: the law of diversity. Localization emerges from a very different worldview: one that celebrates diversity; that values different ecosystems and climates and cultures; and that sees the vital importance of community.

    ” I began my career as an economics professor but became frustrated because the economic theories I taught in the classroom didn’t have any meaning in the lives of poor people I saw all around me. I decided to turn away from the textbooks and discover the real-life economics of a poor person’s existence.”

    Muhammad Yunus

    Entrepreneurs are positive and patience in nature, they are not pessimistic and poor as we think.

    Why could not advantage be taken of a time of relative calm and quiet to investigate and try to solve a question of such immense and worldwide importance, both from the humane and Christian stand-point?
