New Collective Artist Titus Burger
Orphan Sunday Project by Titus Burger from Amber Burger on Vimeo. Titus is one of the coolest kids I have had the privilege of meeting.  To see someone this young having the passion to help others is both humbling and inspiring.  I would pay the 4 dollars for his artwork (and already have) just to make this kid’s project successful.

Plentitude Economics
New Dream Mini-Views: Visualizing a Plenitude Economy from Center for a New American Dream on Vimeo. Presented by The Center for a New American Dream, and summarizing the content of Schor’s book Plenitude: The New Economics of True Wealth, what I love about this video is that it absolutely brims with positivity, excitement and optimism. This is not about letting go of a system that is working well, yet is unsustainable—it is about accepting our status quo is broken, and taking our culture and our economy to the logical next step in ensuring health, happiness and planetary stability.   Related...
