The Power of Half Equals Big Opportunities

HopeTracker| GlobalShift introduces us to the Salwen family and the story of one American family who reformatted their lives in Cultural Creatives, 21st century fashion. Perhaps the effort isn’t totally CC.

Reading the extensive Amazon reviews, it seems that the Salwen’s are quite ‘caught up’ in the benevolence of their family decision to sell the McMansion, giving away half and hitting the road in Africa. Not all reviewers appreciate the self-congratulatory tone of their journey.

Nevertheless, the story of how an American family gives up Modern values, based on he who has the most toys wins,  to pursue Cultural Creatives ones with less emphasis on status and a global view of poverty and opportunity motivates a good story on the role Americans can play in the world.
