California designer, Vina Lustado is quick to point out that her tiny house is not temporary, but her “forever” house. If she moves, it’s going with her. That is one of the great advantage of owing a tiny home. It’s mobile.
Watch as Emily Castor talks about her experience diving into the “sharing economy” and how she feels it will ultimately benefit everyone.
Just a few years ago, Jenna Spesard and Guillaume Dutilh of Tiny House BIG Journey had a pretty common lifestyle. They both had regular jobs and resided in pretty typical homes. Jenna lived in a 2500 square foot home with roommates and Guillaume lived in a 1000 square foot apartment that he had all to himself. So it’s an understatement to say that their lifestyle changed radically when they both quit their jobs to build a tiny home on wheels and tour the U.S.
Three weeks ago, Dan Price took a $930,000 pay cut. Growing income inequality had been on his mind for months. But as he went for a hike with a friend one afternoon and listened to her describe her struggle with rising rent prices, he realized he had to do something for his own employees. So Price, the founder and CEO of Gravity Payments in Seattle, decided to raise the minimum salary at his 120-person payment processing company to $70,000.
Fight for $15—the movement calling for livable wages and union rights for low-income workers—launched a worldwide day of action on this morning with walkouts and rallies across the globe, spanning more than 200 cities in the U.S. and 35 countries.
B.A. Norgard loans out her tiny 112 square foot house to some people so they can try on her little lifestyle. The experiment was only for a few hours and even so, it clearly wasn’t the right lifestyle choice for some.
There is mounting evidence that the world is actively preparing for economic life after the death of the Dollar. The facts are now quantifiable, and for those if us who are accustomed to this moment is history where the Dollar is still technically “the world’s reserve currency” and cheap imports fill big box stores, the truth of what’s occurring globally RIGHT NOW as discussed in this interview with Miles Franklin’s Bill Holter is startling
If Neumeyer is right, and all the signs suggest his assessment is fairly accurate, then the recent strength of the U.S. dollar will be short-lived. Once deleveraging by governments and central banks has been completed they will unleash an economic, financial and monetary storm that will change the very fabric of the global order.
With house prices in Auckland City (New Zealand) going through the roof, 22 year old Lily Kemp decided to get a bit creative in order to escape the rent trap. For her, inspiration struck in the form of a vintage pop-top camper which she found on TradeMe (similar to ebay) for only $1,000.
Are we watching a replay of the last financial crisis? Over the past six months, the price of oil has collapsed, the U.S. dollar has soared, and a whole bunch of other patterns that we witnessed just before the stock market crash of 2008 are repeating once again. But what we have not seen yet is the actual stock market crash. So will there be one this year?
If the root of our economic problem is the tendency toward centralized, globalist bureaucracies (like the EU and the WTO and the IMF and the World Bank) why does anyone believe the solution will be centralized, globalist bureaucracies (like the BRICS Bank and the EEU and the AIIB)? Today we look at a truly paradigm-shattering civilization-wide change taking place right now that has the potential to undermine the status quo: the peer-to-peer economy.
Russell Brand got in a lot of trouble recently when he made a few jokes about his participation in “Comic Relief.” The mainstream media twisted his remarks, cooked up some stories, and took some public jabs at him. And I’m glad they did, because when someone (or something like a big media organization) pokes at Russell, he always pokes back.
On March 12, the government of the United Kingdom announced that they would be applying to join the Chinese-led Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank… as a founding member. This is huge. Right now, the United States dominates the global financial system. But after years of endless wars, spying, debt, money printing, bailouts, and insane regulations, the rest of the world has had enough. And they’re looking for an alternative. China is coming up with an answer.
