#IsThereEnough is here to drive an inclusion conversation that helps make the world actually work for 100% of humanity, a framed mathematical goal of R. Buckminster Fuller.
Throughout 70,000 years of human history, we have been limited in survival to those that could access and utilize the resources that survival was based on. Those resources, we were told, were limited. In fact, they were scarce. We are still economically governed by those ideas. There are no economics textbooks, in any language, that suggest otherwise. Economics has always been said to be based on distributing a limited pie, on scarce, or some might say, “scare”, resources.
The problem is that economic theory is just that, theory. There are no examples in human history that demonstrate scarcity as a pre condition of economics. We have never run out of any resource, in all of human history, before we replaced it with something else. We also have never found any example of a migration of people, by refugee, war, or voluntary movement, that has caused a destination country to economically suffer. In fact, just the opposite is true. They have thrived. Is there scarcity in the world? Sure, but is it a precondition of life on earth ?
Scarcity exists, but not because we lack resources, or because we have ‘too many people’. In fact, it is just the opposite. It is because we lack agreement. Instead of working on 100%, we are focused on who is to be included. What creates survival is wealth, which is much more than money. Money only stores wealth. Changes in real wealth, such as have taken place in the last 100 years in India, or the last 25 years in Bangladesh, saving 100’s of millions of lives, haven take place by agreement, something humans are not very good at yet. We are very good at war.
Our Economic Models Need An Upgrade
Our goal, and our game, our entire game, is to reach 100 Million people who are ready to enroll in a new economic agreement, The #IsThereEnough Economic Peace Treaty, that prizes wealth building over war. If you are ready to sign the agreement, do so today. If you are not ready, dig into our influences page. Studying them, you will gain some understanding of our values and intentions. We do not want you to take a commitment to a peace treaty to be taken lightly. We want to know you are exercising a clear and informed choice when you join us in the pledge, to hold agreement over war.
