Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Corp I find myself on a great plain.  The sun is going down and it is getting windier and colder by the second.  I do have some firewood to help stay warm but if I do not get that fire lit, I and the others […]

A Challenge to Millennials:  Recreate a World Where Participation Has Meaning There are a scant few who would defend that money works.  If you are one of the lucky ones for whom it is working, than you would also be one of those who are quietly doing the defending.  For the vast majority though, money […]

Faustian Consumer

I was once a young man.  I not only suffered from the petulance of youth but at the same time pictured the possibility of an ideal world in which I could personally make a difference.  I became disheartened though when I found myself living paycheck to paycheck and every dollar that came in was a […]

Shoot the Screenwriter

Junk Money

Posted on: Nov. 29, 2011  |  By: Ronnie Kahn  |  Category: General

I dream worlds.  They are other worlds which I figure must be in alien realms or distant lands.  I used to dream about relationships which contained the characters in my life like one would view a play at a theater.  No more, I only see some bizarre world where I can’t explain what happens or […]

It’s official.  The financial markets have been diagnosed with bipolar disease.  Wildly down one day and then up the next (or even during the same day).  Everyone wants to know whether consumers will have the confidence to keep buying anything and everything they can find.  One day it seems we will keep buying and buying […]

Unconditional Love and Money

Posted on: May. 3, 2011  |  By: Ronnie Kahn  |  Category: General

Re-imagining Money as a Fair Tender There is a quote by William Faulkner that “History isn’t dead; it’s not even past.”  There is a lot of talk that with the U.S. national debt where it is, this unsustainable level will bring the U.S. and its currency down.
