Joy, in Nature's wide dominion,
Mightest cause of all is found;
And 'tis joy that moves the pinion,
When the wheel of time goes round.

Friedrich Schiller, 1759 - 1805

When I care to be powerful - to use my strength in the service of my vision - then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.

Whosoever wishes to know about the world must learn about it in its particular details. Knowledge is not intelligence. In searching for the truth, be ready for the unexpected; change alone is unchanging. The same road goes both up and down. The beginning of a circle is also its end. Not I, but the world says it: all is one. And yet everything comes in season.

(Heraclitus of Ephesus, 535 - 475)

What is Modular-Finance...????

First, It's important to understand what it is NOT.

"There isn't a single story, The way we understand economics and economies is by learning from lots of different sources and thinking about them in lots of different ways." ~ John Kay, Economics in the Real World

Soulis something creative, something active. Soul is honesty. I sing to people about what matters. I sing to the realists, people who accept it like it is. I express problems; there are tears when it's sad and smiles when it's happy. it seems simple to me, but to some, feelings take courage.

(Aretha Franklin, 102 - 2018)

Joy and woe are woven fine, clothing for the soul divine;
under every grief and pine runs a joy with silken twine.
It is right it should be so: we were made for joy and woe;
and when this we rightly know, safely through the world we go.

(William Blake, 1757 - 1827)

What is Modular-Finance...

At two meetings at the White House sponsored by the Obama Administration's department of labor, seventy-five people from a variety of organizations and movements gathered to discuss whether or not there needed to be one brand that identifies the emerging new story of business.

While such a brand may someday surface, for our purposes we want to focus on the underlying ideas and principles that are inspiring all this activity.

  That is the purpose of Modular-Finance™

Whatever brand ultimately becomes the rallying cry of this conceptual revolution, it will have to be based on a sense of purpose and ethics that is central to the new narrative as profit is to the old one.

Modern vs Modular

It will have to address how companies can simultaneously create value for all of their key stakeholders. The brand will have to take sustainability and the physical limits of business very seriously. It will have to account for the fact that all businesses are embedded in societal institutions and processes. It will have to recognize that people are complex (vs Rational Expectations) and that they can and do collaborate with others to create value.(Vs Selfish). And it will have to integrate these ideas into a coherent framework.

Getting them to work together - The Balance or the Blend if you will - is what we call - Modular-Finance™
