Jim Clingman | Blackonomics

James E. Clingman is one of the nation’s top writers on economic empowerment for African Americans. Below are a few quotes selected from the above video.

…let’s own our own grocery store, if we can’t feed ourselves, if we can’t demonstrate to our children that we can take care of them and provide the very sustenance that they need to live and survive in this country…

I can get very specific on some economic solutions like …urban gardening, …bartering, we need to trade some stuff with one another…why not have bartering circles in our churches, in colleges, in our communities, in our neighborhoods where we trade a few things with one another and save those deflating dollars…
