THE SLOW MONEY PRINCIPLES

•We must bring money back down to earth.

•There is such a thing as money that's too fast, companies that are too big, finance that is too complex. We must slow enough of our money down to matter.

•The 21st century will usher in the era of nurture capital.

•We must learn to invest as if food, farms and fertility mattered.

•Let us celebrate the new generation of entrepreneurs, consumers and investors who are showing the way from making a killing to making a living.

•Let us begin rebuilding our economy from the ground up.
