The First Family of Radio

When Franklin D. Roosevelt was elected president in 1932, he and first lady Eleanor Roosevelt both used the new medium of radio to reach into American homes like never before. They rallied the nation to combat the Great Depression and fight fascism. The Roosevelts forged an uncommonly personal relationship with the people. This documentary explores how FDR and ER's use of radio revolutionized the way Americans relate to the White House and its occupants.

    Rising prices on the poorest

    In January 2014 nearly a hundred college presidents gathered at the White House for a summit on the rising cost of college. But data show that those same institutions have been raising their prices fastest for the poorest students than for wealthier ones. This week on the podcast, we talk to a reporter who has been following the rising college cost burden on poor families.

    How Much Will College Cost My Family?

    In 2011 the federal government required colleges and universities to publish “net price calculators” on their web sites. These tools are supposed to help families figure out which colleges they can afford. The calculators take into account family income, number of kids in college, state of residency, and other factors. But they’re often hard to use and time-consuming. Our guest this week has made this process simpler and more accessible.

    Bridging the “Middle Skills” Gap

    There’s a paradox in today’s job market: even though there are millions of people looking for work, employers say they can’t find enough qualified workers. That’s due to an abundance of what economists call “middle skills” jobs – jobs that require specialized training beyond high school, but not a four-year college degree.

    Commentary: Turning the tables on the vocational ed debate

    I’m not arguing that all education should be about acquiring job skills ... I’m saying that good vocational high schools have figured out how to bring college prep into their curriculum. And it’s time that traditional academic high schools brought more vocational education into theirs.

The Ingenesist Project specifies an alternate economy that closely resembles market capitalism except that factors of production are not land, labor, and financial capital. They are social, creative, and intellectual capital. These are the things that social entrepreneurs will allocate in the production of goods and services. This is called "Social Capitalism."

Social capitalism requires a standardized (normalized) community knowledge inventory and a social media application that allows millions of social entrepreneurs to match most worthy knowledge surplus with most worthy knowledge deficit within a geographical area (i.e., a neighborhood or community).

Since we use the same calculus as Wall Street, we can estimate the likelihood that an entrepreneur will return a social profit. All predicted social profits can be combined into a social "cash" flow and securitized as innovation bonds. The innovation bonds will be traded as a social currency to hedge the dollar.

Debt is a promise against future productivity. The innovation bond is also a promise against future productivity. Therefore, an innovation bond and debt denominated dollar would be fully convertible. That would end poverty in a hurry. Please see the Ingenesist website for an informative video series.

So . . . people should . . . THINK food onto the table? I fail to see how your "social capitalism" will feed, clothe or house people who lack these things.

@Kieth A; Yes, people will think and food, clothes, houses, airplanes, and software will get produced. How do you believe that happens now...bankers? Ingenesist is an exact duplicate of the same exact system that can now read a strip of magnetic carbon laminated to a piece of plastic which allows you to carry groceries out of a store. The exception are "the factors of production" If you don't understand how that system works, it will be difficult for you to understand how The Ingenesist Project will accomplish the exact same outcome, except where the human is the item of permanence rather than the environment, machinery, and a debt based currency.
