Right now, the question is why we have inflation, which I thinkis being under reported. No one seems to be talking about thefact that in the course of two quarters in early 2020, the M1money supply went up by 400%.
Doug Howarth discovered and named the field of Hypernomics, also known as Multidimensional Economics or ME. He formed his company, Hypernomics Inc., around this discipline. MEE has worked for NASA, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon Technologies, Northrop Grumman, and Virgin Galactic, among others. He and two others in his company patented “Multivariable Regression Analysis,” under US Patent Number 10,402,838, the world’s first software designed to arrange, plot, and decrypt markets in four dimensions. They call it MEE4D. Mr. Howarth has authored 15 peer-reviewed papers across four continents. His book, Using Hidden Dimensions To Solve Unseen Problems, awaits publication. Doug Howarth unleashed a paradigm shift. He discovered Multidimensional Economics (ME). It alters economics in the same way relativity changed physics, as it uses new frames of reference. It starts with four dimensions and adds time for a fifth. But, there is no upper limit to the dimensions considered. It finds the linked, opposing, self-organizing states of Value and Demand at work against each other at all times – just like the game of tug-of-war. At age 14, Doug Howarth sensed the plotting systems created by René Descartes were inadequate for many tasks. Decades later, he made a series of startling discoveries. He found the economy self-organizes in recognizable opposing patterns and devised ways to portray markets in four, five, or any number of dimensions. Doug named this new field Multidimensional Economics, (ME). In 2011, he formed a company, Multidimensional Economic Evaluators (MEE) Inc., who show their customers how to take advantage of ME. MEE Inc. has worked for NASA, United Technologies, Lockheed Martin and Raytheon, among others. Along with two of his MEE colleagues, he was awarded US Patent Number 10,402,838 for Multivariable Regression Analysis, the world’s first software designed to deconstruct markets into their 4D structures. Doug has written 13 peer-reviewed publications acro

I decided to pick a day and allow people to sign up for a free meeting.I acted like it was a meeting that I had been running for a long time andit was amazing.
Sonia is the founder of EverBlume which provides small group recovery meetings where members are matched into groups based on what they are struggling with. The goal is for members to find connection through conversation, and get meaningful support and feedback from each other. Sonia is an orthodontist who built and sold a successful multi-location practice in 2016 and got sober in 2017. Since then, she become a recovery coach and has dedicated her life to making a difference with social impact investing and volunteering with the incarcerated, formerly incarcerated, and victims of sex trafficking. And now she hopes to create her biggest impact by leveraging the power of peer support to create a community for those on their recovery journey. Sonia Kahlon built and scaled her own orthodontist practice over the course of 6 years, experiencing explosive growth along the way. But just as her career was booming, her mental health spiraled out of control, and she developed an addiction to alcohol. When her life became unsustainable, she decided to sell her practice and get sober. Fast forward to 2022, when the end of a long-term relationship saw her struggling with her sobriety once more, and seeking out meetings to avoid self-medicating. Kahlon found that many of the existing meetings deprived her of feedback, advice or individualized support – which was what she truly needed. Kahlon decided it was time to become a certified recovery coach and launch an organization that would more directly help women struggling with alcohol. That’s how she became the founder of EverBlume, which hosts intimate, online group recovery meetings where individuals are matched according to the specific challenges they are currently facing. In Sonia Kahlon’s perspective, she observed that conventional online group recovery meetings typically gathered anywhere from 50 to 200 participants, with only a small fraction, approximately 5%, actively sharing their personal stories. Over time, she noticed that the same individuals tended to dominate these discussions, resulting in a passive form of recovery akin to listening to a podcast, rather than fostering a robust su
