  1. Looking forward to reading your posts as they appear, Joe. Also, that’s a great photo of you, handsome devil!

  3. Looks very interesting!
    Will you be holding a similar series in the SF area any time soon?
    If so, please send info.

    • Hi Peg,

      I don’t have plans at the moment to lead workshops in the Bay Area. That said, I think the topic of large-scale behavior change would appeal to a lot of people in your neck of the woods. Any thoughts about who might bring me down as a trainer would be much appreciated!

  4. Peg (and Joe),

    I’m interested in having a workshop in the Bay Area, and I’m connecting with a few people here that seem to be open to such an idea. Maybe we can get enough of us together to make it work for Joe. I’m okat with giving my address here:

  5. This is the most relevant topic I’ve seen in print yet! Have been thinking in terms of psychopaths, increasingly for the last couple of decades, always wondering what can be done. Your ideas are remarkable for their balance. Please go forward. I’ll be forwarding this to as many friends as possible.

  6. I am traching a class in Consumer Behavior at The American Business School – Paris in which I place greqat emphasis on the transition from Consumer Behavior to Human Behavior now holding sway in all aspects of our daily lives including but not limited to politics, social engineering, religion, finance, family, economics, real estate et al. I would like permission to use yout article “What if All the World’s Debt Just Went Away?” in mt claaa. I have heard that Iceland somehow abolished the debt that followed their financial collapse but am still trying to validate that before mantioing it in class. Thank you for your work, Sincerely, John Hall

  7. Thank you for this article. May I have your permission to use it in teaching my class in Consumer Behavior at The American Business School – Paris (which is located in Paris, France). One of my basic gtenets is that Consumeer Behavior has become inexorably Human Behavior and now dominating all aspects of human activity, political, social, economic, religious, professional, but sadly I believe ethical is not in play any longer. And debt is the devil’s own engine of choice. Thank you again; I hope you will allow the use of your article.

    • Hey John,

      Of course, by all means use my articles as teaching materials in your class. I post them to the web so that they can be widely shared for anyone’s use. Please let me know how the students respond to the material.

      Very best,
