A good kind of group think builds sustainable small businesses
Ernesto Sirolli taps into the collective genius of communities.
If you happen to ride your bicycle to Ernesto Sirolli's Sacramento, California, residence, as I did, your effort won't go unrewarded. When he opens the garage door, you'll be treated to a glimpse of his prized possession, a white 1951 Morgan Roadster... It's a great introduction to the lifework of Sirolli himself, who over the last 23 years has helped communities around the world grow small businesses from the ground up.

If people are paid to do nothing, that's exactly what they'll do
Just before Christmas 2006, Jeff Randall, a leading Industrial Correspondent in the UK, wrote an article outlining the need for fresh policies to reduce the number of people in the UK who are fit to work - but instead 'choose' to live on state welfare. The language that Randall uses to describe the problem is powerful.
Economic Gardening is a process of economic and community development that works on the premise that sustainable development starts from where a community is at. Everything that the community requires for its own development is already present in the community - intelligence, passion, commitment and motivation. Development happens by nurturing these resources and helping them to flourish. Economic gardening is about looking for, and building on, the assets that the community already has. It is an asset based approach that seeks to create jobs and opportunities by supporting companies, actual and latent entrepreneurs that are already in the community.
