The most effective ways to deal with poverty, declining economic opportunity, and community rebuilding originate from within the community.
The most efficient way of administering these solutions is by and through the community.
Community programs often lack breadth, their ability to reach many, because they lack that one important resource that frequently determines whether a program will last or perish.. MONEY!!.
WE NEED POLITICO-ECONOMIC INNOVATION! ANY ONE UP FOR IT?
