Collaborative Fund

Collaborative Fund focuses on two themes: the increasing importance of values as they relate to the decisions we make about who we work for, what we buy, and how we spend our time; and the shift from an economy based on hyper-consumption to one based on Collaborative Consumption. These two forces present a significant opportunity for new technologies, products, and services to reinvent how we do business and transform our daily lives.

What Next? (Two Questions)

Desire for economic forecasts surges right when our ability to accurately forecast plunges. That’s the case today. The decline is unprecedented, so there’s no good historic guide to what might happen next. It’s also huge, so the need for businesses, states, counties, and countries to plan for what …

Then you ignore the bad news, because even once it’s reported it’s easy to dismiss if you’re not familiar with …

Why Time Has Slowed

Wounds Heal, Scars Last

Drive past the Pentagon and there is no trace of the plane that crashed into its walls almost 19 years ago. But drive three minutes down the road, to Reagan National Airport, and the scars of September 11th are everywhere. Shoes off, jackets off, belts off, toothpaste out, hands up, and empty your w…

Two Things Can Be True At Once

“How are you holding up?” That may be the most common question being asked around the world these days. I’ve posed it to dozens of people. Several have asked me the same. Two answers are common. “Devastated,” or something similar is one. “I have good days and bad days” is another – a toggling b…

Common Enemies

Everyone wants a map. Just a simple guide to what’s going to happen next. In search of a map it’s become common to try to match our current situation to past crises. Is this like 2008? Similar to 9/11? Is this like the 1918 flu pandemic? Or maybe the Great Depression? But none of those fit tod…
