Decentralized Prosperity: Trend Analysis
This month the Wicked Problem is Systemic Barriers: Roadblocks to individual and collective equity and justice built into governmental, organizational, and social systems due to long-standing prejudices, superiority and fear.
We reframed this problem into the Wicked Opportunity Decentralized Prosperity: New landscapes of widespread freedom, success and fulfillment across all cultures and communities due to bottom-up governance and social constructs of inclusion.

The injustices exacerbated by the “powers-that-be” are unlikely to change through a purely top-down effort, as the factors that lead to these prejudices and inequalities are rooted in our local and individual beliefs. That’s not to say we shouldn’t fight for just government; rather, widespread prosperity must become part of our global psyche so that it is practiced in our businesses, neighborhoods and families. Government is way overdue for an evolutionary transition – it must grow and morph just like any other human entity, and life tends toward decentralization. It may seem like a big task, but the bridge to a more prosperous future for all already exists!
