**Problem:** There is a lot to be relocalized. The key to success will be the degree of local creativity, as opposed to force fitting foreign designs.

In many cases the old way is not working, even destroying the planet. So "creativity" points toward new and better ways.

As supply chains and global financial institutions fail we will begin to rely on local provision of almost everything.

**Therefore:** The key will be vibrant and continuous local creativity--applied to every problem that we face.


"Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn't do it, they just saw something. It seems obvious to them after a while. That's because they were able to connect experiences they've had and synthesize new things." --Steve Jobs
