For the first time in American history the next generation is expecting a living standard less than their parents. This decline includes, but is not primarily an economic setback. As a university professor of economics I have watched what we as a society have done to our children, environment, and future, and it isn't pretty. I'd like to summarize my observations and offer some recommendations. The social sciences can be part of the solution. Perhaps we've been part of the problem. As my biographical snapshot reveals, in addition to economics, I have read extensively in philosophy, psychology, comparative religion, and spirituality. More importantly I have watched it with my own eyes, wide open. I'd like to share these ideas with you.

Professor, Business and Economics, University of Wisconsin
Rice Lake, Wisconsin, USA

In addition to teaching I do research in business ethic and moral development. As a small business consultant I am now involved with a state wide initiative to promote inventions, entrepreneurship, small business startups and growth. In addition to accounting and economics, I have read extensively in philosophy, psychology, comparative religion, and spirituality. I am on a quest to understand what it is to be fully human. I believe I have found a few answers.
