The status of our national financial health is always in the news, but the business as usual discourse seems to achieve new heights of passion when the US Federal budget is up for debate. Given the strain of our unprecedented national debt, the conservative resurgence in the 2010 mid-term elections, and new global realities that are challenging the dominate financial position of the United States in world markets, David and I take a first look at what role evolution plays in our global financial future as seen through an Integral worldview.

In the full audio, we discuss:

  • What evolutionary stages are currently represented in the global economic system and what do they want?
  • What can we actually change in the US Federal budget?
  • Is there a new global system emerging that will replace nation states?
  • How do you sort out a hopeful personal path in the endless polarized debate about what is the right thing to do?
  • Are we just arguing about individual trees and missing the overall health of the forest?

This is a huge conversation, and we’ve only just begun to scratch the surface. We’re simply trying to navigate our way through these murky waters, finding meaning amidst the countless economic realities that govern our financial lives. So please, weigh in on how these forces are affecting your own checkbook and influencing the financial and political decisions you are making in your own lives.
