In addition, the people creating today's technologies have been nurtured, civilized, educated, socialized, and organized by families and communities — by society. They are times of danger and uncertainty; but they are also more open to the creative energy of men than any other time in history. Our society, our economy, and our natural ecosystems are all in crisis today because we have failed to work together, through government, to protect either nature or society.

That's how we are going to bring about change. In some instances, these two forces have been self-reinforcing: In March, the storm was at its fiercest. The foreign exchange swap market indicates that the funding costs for many institutions may be even higher than suggested by the dollar LIBOR fixing. This provides cover against the potential for an adverse signal from participation. It must be ecologically sound and socially responsible if it is to be economically viable.
