Almost everything we need to know about the economy we learned when we were kids. If a growing percentage of the population eats bad food, drinks bad water, watches 8 hours of TV a day, gets no exercise and develops skills at printing currency, printing securities, dealing drugs, engineering financial frauds (big and small), putting young people in prison, manipulating media, engineering the excuses for more warfare, administering legal and financial systems and debating distractions, there is no hope. If, however, enough of us shift our time and investment to activities that are life giving and productive, miracles are indeed possible.
By "miracle," she might really mean miracle. She may be saying that virtue has a silent partner. In any case, she consistently suggests we take our money out of the global financial markets and invest locally, face to face with our neighbors. Likewise, she would have us disinvest our attention in the national media, and pay attention to what happens close enough to hand that our small efforts can make a big difference.
