Money & Motivation – the Tele-Class

Join me on May 19, 2009 for a FREE tele-class on Money & Motivation.  Find out the many ways we’ve been programmed to focus on money as our MAIN motivator!  Realize all the other motivational elements we could be drawing upon, and where that would lead us if we made those our main motivators.  Do you think our lives would be different as a result?  Do you think we could create more happiness AND more free-flowing abundance if we didn’t just make it all about money?

This call will be at 10 a.m. Pacific, and will be repeated (live) at 5 p.m. Pacific, in order to be of service to those who can’t make the call during the day.  As well, this call WILL be recorded, so if you sign up, you will be sent the link to the recording by the following day.

To your prosperity,

Sue

Why We Fight – the Documentary

A look at the “military-industrial complex” (a phrase coined by the late Dwight Eisenhower). This film sheds light on the ‘money effect’ of war, and is very pertinent to this website’s focus. I would highly recommend this film for viewing by all audiences around the globe.

I share a quotation from Charles Lewis, Center for Public Integrity, who says in the film:

I think the history of the US, as a work in progress in our attempt at democracy here, is a constant struggle between capitalism and democracy, and there have been ebbs and flows where democracy looks like it’s winning – you reign in those powerful forces — but the fundamental reality is, that most of the government’s decisions today are substantially dictated by powerful corporate interest. Clearly, capitalism is winning.

May we all live in peace and harmony with each other.

To your prosperity,

Sue

Who Killed the Electric Car — the Documentary

I love this documentary because it brings up so much for discussion.

During the course of history, we’ve had some amazing inventions that have been extremely beneficial to everyone and everything — people and the environment — and yet, the inventions have been thwarted, or actually eliminated. In this case, they actually destroyed all the cars they created.

So, who IS really at fault for this situation? In the movie they list a bunch of possibilities. They are:

  • Consumers
  • Batteries
  • Oil Companies
  • Car Companies
  • Lack of Maintenance Profits
  • Government
  • C.A.R.B. (California Air Resources Board)
  • Hydrogen

Allegedly, the consumers didn’t provide enough demand for the new technology, plus liked the spaciousness and convenience of the old technology. Allegedly, the batteries weren’t as efficient as everyone would like them to be, and were more of an inconvenience. Allegedly, the oil companies didn’t want their business taken away. Allegedly, the car manufacturers didn’t want to be told what to do by a regulatory board. Allegedly, the car parts of the old technology generated huge amounts of income and they were concerned about the loss of that income. Allegedly, the government (most likely pressured by the oil industry and the car manufacturers) did not enforce a zero emission standard. Allegedly, C.A.R.B. reneged on their initial stance because of pressure from both the government and the car companies. Allegedly, the hydrogen fuel cell is touted to be better than the EV technology, yet there are so many barriers to production, it could take 20 years for it actually be something people are able to buy and use. It was also argued that the coal emissions from producing the electricity that would be required to keep these cars on the road would be worse for the environment that leaving things the way they are.

Hmmm…and how does money fit into all this?

To your prosperity,

Life and Debt — the Documentary

There is a fountain of information found at the local libraries.  Not everything need come from the internet, nor do we have to pay for every movie we want to watch.

Today, I found this gem-of-a-movie at the library — and got to watch it for free.  The documentary is called Life and Debt, and is based on the economic problems in Jamaica that started after the British left. It’s a fascinating movie, and I was saddened by the series of events and the situation the country is in.

It’s very well done, and the link I provided gives you tons of information about the movie, so I will not elaborate further.

To your prosperity,

Sue
