About Us

We are a small group of people from all corners of the North American economy. Some of us have a great deal of economics training, others are business owners and entrepreneurs. Some of us are young people just getting started with their careers, and some of us are retired.

We built this website to provide a forum to help us develop a clear and accurate picture of what’s happening with our economy in the year 2020.

Once we’ve developed a consensus view of our economic situation, we’ll start discussing, organizing and then publishing the various strategies and methods that are helping people successfully adapt to the new economic landscape.


Ethos is a Greek word meaning “character” that is used to describe the guiding beliefs or ideals that characterize a community. The ethos we seek to build empasizes the values of fairness, civility, accuracy, courage, focus and a bias toward action.

Making Your Impact

As this site gathers momentum, the early participants can have an outsized impact on the ultimate trajectory and quality of the project. If each of us makes the effort to cultivate and reinforce our shared ethic this site will develop into an excellent resource for all of us.

Please consider the impact you’re having as you comment, as you write articles for publication, and as you recruit your highly esteemed friends and colleagues to join in.
