What opportunity could possibly come from a world economy in crisis? The same opportunity, which comes from a personal economic crisis – the chance to develop a new economic model or strategy. On a macro-economic scale, the work being done by nef (New Economics Foundation) has caught our attention. The New Economics Foundation is self-described as:
“an independent think-and-do tank that inspires and demonstrates real economic well-being. [They] aim to improve quality of life by promoting innovative solutions that challenge mainstream thinking on economic, environment and social issues. [They] work in partnership and put people and the planet first.” They believe that the global pursuit of growth has not worked and are developing a new economic model for transition to a low-carbon, high well-being future model.
On a micro-economics scale, our personal financial circumstances provided us the opportunity to adopt a new financial model or strategy. In future posts, we’ll be sharing how we did this, but in the meantime, if the economic crisis of the past few years has changed your financial situation, tell us how you have coped?
Until next time,
Your Boomer Life Partners
