Poverty Inc

Poverty Inc
The landmark film about global aid and the limits of philanthropy.

Ben Ferencz

Benjamine Ferencz Law over War
Benjamin Ferencz's heroic career has been promoting and instituting a single truth, "law over war" for more than 70 years. As one of the international legal community's living treasures, and one of the architects of the International Criminal Court, Ben is responsible for putting the concept of "crimes against humanity" into law. As a Nuremburg prosecutor, he was tasked with bringing to trial the Nazi death squad leaders that killed over 1,000,000 people. Not content with merely the defendants themselves, he put their crimes, and society itself, on trial, holding us to a new standard of international justice, a legacy that remains.

Law is an agreement that allows humans to transcend war. Our laws, norms, and social agreements create an inevitable path forward to making the world work for 100% of humanity.

Buckminster Fuller

Buckminister Fuller and the World Game
The survival and life strategy work of Buckminster Fuller,  20th century  architect, systems theorist, author, designer, inventor and futurist, and the man who coined the term Spaceship Earth, is at the heart of our campaign.

Our question, #IsThereEnough, is a  doorway to his World Game question that asks how we make the world work for 100% of humanity, producing wealth, and survival, for all of us.

Marcia Martin

Marcia Martin, Life lives in the conversation   Talk This Way
Life lives in the conversation
That phrase, "life lives in the conversation" was authored by Marcia Martin as consequential as any human being alive today in the success of what many people think of as the human potential movement, a global 20th century phenomenon that may prove to have seeded the tools we  need for leadership in meeting the challenges of the 21st. Marcia is fond of reminding us that life actually happens, and even transforms, by our conversation, something this campaign is built on demonstrating.
Marcia's self commitment to her work began consciously in her teens, and in her early 20's, she became one of the most visible and impactful members of the team that produced and scaled EST (later known as The Forum) to evolve into the transformational global phenomenon it became, a set of work that is still being studied in academia and which had the love and attention of a late age Buckminster Fuller. As a youth and future oriented organization of the 1970's, it created a resurgence in appreciation for, and even an expansion of,  Bucky's reach, helping him steer a new generation of social entrepreneurs that later influenced the work #IsThereEnough is currently doing.

A Radical New Economic Theory

The Deficit Myth
Kelton’s work suggests that government deficits are able to be used for creating wealth and inclusion in a particularly modern model in which society can play a participating market role.

Letters from Birmingham Jail

Martin Luther King, Letters from Birmingham Jail
Letter from Birmingham Jail, one of Martin Luther King’s most famous pieces of expression, written at a pivotal moment in civil rights history, suggests, in the clearest possible terms, that any injustice anywhere, is an injustice everywhere. This #IsThereEnough campaign is about human lives, all human lives, and the rights to life and liberty that everyone has, no matter their country, race or religion. "It is not possible to be in favor of justice for some people and not be in favor of justice for all people." -Martin Luther King, Jr.

The Entrepreneurial State

Mariana Mazzuchato
Mariana Mazzucato addresses the growing concern about capitalism and a counter movement embracing socialism. “There’s all sorts of different ways to do capitalism. There’s the kind of maximization of shareholder value. There’s the more stakeholder value perspective. . . that fundamentally affects how public and private come together. That’s what I think need complete rebooting rather than to start calling things socialism.”

What are the SDG's?

We the People Image
The Sustainable Development Goals are a collection of 17 interlinked global goals designed to be a "blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all". The SDGs were set up in 2015 by the United Nations General Assembly and are intended to be achieved by the year 2030.

Leave Them Wanting More

Jerry Seinfeld
The question of #IsThereEnough has an entirely new twist when it comes to Seinfeld. How much Seinfeld was #enough, was the key question for an artist responsible for bringing his audience a rare thing of value that is arguably one of the 10 greatest entertainment phenomena of all time.  Jerry is asked by Oprah Winfrey in this video, "why did you end Seinfeld?" and his clear and articulate answer reveals that the things we value most are the things we do not have enough of.  Jerry wanted his audience to experience that value at its highest capability.

Money & You

Money & You
Money & You has become one of the most consequential and influencial developers of human transformational talent of the last 50 years, on a global scale and perspective.  It has trained over 100,000 graduates who are now in leadership positions throughout the world in dozens of disciplines, including business, government and social impact.

Money & You is a global leadership game, purposely and artfully seeming to be about money, and our relationship to it. It is, instead, a journey to self discovery and the way we collaborate with others. It is the most vivid way possible for anyone to truly understand, in a group environment, that wealth is not money, and money is not wealth, a difference that matters in survival and standard of living. It is also the fastest way for any team to accelerate productive relationship results.

The program was founded in 1979 by Marshall Thurber, Bobbi DePorter, two groundbreaking pioneers in combining entrepreneurship with social impact education, and Dame Doria Cordova, who is leading it to this day. It is based on the interactive experiential learning principles of super teaching, and masters the ability to meaningfully incorporate complex and specific principles from the work of Buckminster Fuller, Edwards Deming, and Ilya Prigogene, Nobel Prize Winner in Chemistry 1977, among a number of others. Using  ground breaking experiential education methods, these complex systems thinkers became visceral and accessible to anyone.

This #IsThereEnough campaign carries much of its core essence and many of its principles.
