Appreciating Society Chart – Early Hypothesis from 2010
This chart is about the economic physics of reversing mass incarceration. It acknowledges that our community is operating with a depreciating economic model driven by jailing, and traumatizing people on the left column. On the right column it show how we can reverse the costs and outcomes to the taxpayers if we change what we do in our community at the point of an arrest. When we do an interception, we can completely change outcomes for many people, and build an “APPRECIATING” society business model for the community. This Appreciating Society Chart was produced by Joy Gilfilen after listening to over 24 speakers and 84 people discuss the problems we had in our County – people who attended the Community Visionaries Opportunities Conference in Bellingham, WA in 2010.
