John Perkins, author of  “Confessions of an Economic Hitman” gives a very informative talk in Seattle in April 2011 about the challenges and opportunities of living in the modern world. Yes, he says there are challenges with the environment, the economy and corrupt governments but for the fist time in human history we are all talking to each other, which is bringing about tremendous change and change at a rapid rate.

Perkins goes on to talk about and extol each of us to change the world by finding and expressing our passion. All in all a very inspiring talk.
