On the Grond in Phoenix - Local is where it is at!

On my way here, a friend sent me a link to Peggy Noonan's Wall Street Journal OpEd from this past weekend. One paragraph in specific stuck out to him, and here is what Noonan said,

I end with a hunch that is not an unhappy one. Dynamism has been leached from our [the US] system for now, but not from the human brain or heart. Just as our political regeneration will happen locally, in counties and states that learn how to control themselves and demonstrate how to govern effectively in a time of limits, so will our economic regeneration. That will begin in someone's garage, somebody's kitchen, as it did in the case of Messrs. Jobs and Wozniak. The comeback will be from the ground up and will start with innovation. No one trusts big anymore. In the future everything will be local. That's where the magic will be. And no amount of pessimism will stop it once it starts.


Wow.

To read her entire OpEd and to realize that she ends up on the "local" chair when the music stops is an amazing thing.

Phoenix may have been hit hard by the global economic downturn, just like almost every other city in our nation, but the optimism that we have seen since the moment we arrived is that anyone who is willing to invest in the future here will be rewarded first and foremost by those that have also committed and made Phoenix their home.

It is amazing how valuable the Local concept in Local Motors is. I am humbled by it every day we step into a new community.

Give us a chance to state for our illustration that the cost of this work would be $75,000. See that the aggregate of the price tag and the repair cost are $175,000 instead of $200,000. Commonly, one can hope to pay not as much as the pleasant house cost, in light of the fact that there are not very many purchasers if any who will need to go up against this attempt without some benefit or value included. payday loans chicago
