When I approached a red light in July-hot downtown Atlanta yesterday, a group of young people gave me hope about the economy and about people generally.
They purchased a bunch of bottles of water and ice, placed it all in a cooler and were selling cool water bottles for $1 each. I made a rough calculation that they were making at least 100% profit. They were providing a desired product. At a convenient place.
A spontaneous initiative using tactical empathy to deliver a valued product or service. That is economic hope for the future.
