of the Pods
promotional, and humanitarian uses
While everyone agrees that these pods look like something straight out
of Star Wars, Icosa Village's collection of "Pod" prefab shelters are
actually very down-to-earth. They
are designed for use in a variety of recreational, promotional, and
humanitarian applications. In
addition to being very practical, they are also affordable and easy to
assemble with the pieces snapping together like Erector Sets.
Prices begin around $2000 for the Bucky-inspired dymaxion shelters.

the Mongolian steppes to America
Ever since spending a significant amount of time in an updated version
of the Mongolian yurt, back in 1994-95, I have been fascinated by them.

floors. Their open circular interior encourages social
interaction making them ideal for workshops, group meetings, yoga
studios, as well as art studios, guest rooms, and disaster recovery
shelters. Heating is normally provided by a wood-burning stove in the

the Tapeworm Economy
to Catherine Austin Fitts' financial seminars
These are a truly remarkable set of
seminars available in both CD and mp3 formats on how our financial
system really works. Ms.
Fitts, who holds an MBA from one of the top business schools in the
nation (Wharton), also served as Assistant Secretary of Housing/Federal
Housing Commissioner at HUD in the first Bush Administration. She
possesses the ability to explain our economic system in terms almost
anyone can understand.
If you have had an uneasy feeling since the 1980s that Wall Street has
decoupled itself from Main Street, you will find out why you are
correct. Ms. Fitts calls it the tapeworm economy. A tapeworm is a
parasite which releases a hormone into its hosts which makes the latter
crave what the tapeworm needs in order to survive.
Not only do these seminars explain how the tapeworm economy functions
to bleed individuals and communities, but they also offer solutions
which can be implemented at both the individual and community levels.
