basic introductory stuff
What's the point of all this?
Polls show that 96.7% of all babies are concerned that their standard of living will be inferior to their parent's standard of living.
Polls also show that 96.7% of all adults are really bothered by that statistic.
Polls suggest that if everyone is so darn bothered by that statistic, they need to do something about it.
An informal show of hands indicates that it's easier to ignore an impending standard of living degradation than it is to figure out how to do something about it. At ChangeOurWorld.com, we're out to change that!
If you would prefer not to have to look your children, grandchildren, & great-grandchildren in the eye to tell them that you really wish you could have prevented serious standard-of-living degradation but you didn't want to miss each new episode of CSI:Omaha, then you'll certainly want to explore this site.
