    Chris Gibbons - The Father of Economic Gardening

    in Entrepreneur


    This week’s program will feature Christian Gibbons, Director of Business/Industry Affairs in Littleton, Colorado and co-inventor (along with city manager Jim Woods) of “Economic Gardening,” an entrepreneurial approach to economic development. Mr. Gibbons has run this project for the City of Littleton for 24 years. From the period 1990 to 2009 the number of jobs in Littleton nearly doubled from 15,000 to 30,000 and sales tax revenues more than tripled from $6 to $21 million. The City did not recruit one industry during this period, nor did it offer one cent in incentives or tax rebates.


    Mr. Gibbons received a Master’s Degree in Urban and Regional Planning from the University of Oklahoma in 1973 and worked for the City of Oklahoma City and San Bernardino County, California before establishing his own consulting firm in 1977. From 1977 to 1987 he consulted on a variety of community and economic development projects in Colorado, Wyoming and California. Mr. Gibbons has been married to his wife Diane for 42 years and they have two adult sons.

    Mid Year Economic Update

    in Self Help

    A major change in the economy has been unfolding for several years. It is reaching a financial crisis that will no longer be unnoticed by most. It is possible that social chaos could result.


    The Greek and European debt crisis has come to a head, as well as the one in Puerto Rico. The bond market is failing. With interest on bonds so low that some rates are negative, as interest rates now rise to draw investors, the older bonds are falling in value. The stock market may fall with bonds as the ridiculous derivatives market crashes. Very few people have a full time job with benefits and enough pay to meet living expenses and service their debt.


    Inflation has been in gear in needed items like food, health care and utilities. Even though crude oil prices fell earlier this year, they have risen back somewhat, and gasoline prices are close to $3 again. Meanwhile the “petrodollar” is being abandoned in the world oil markets. Will the dollar fall? Will gold and silver skyrocket? What about real estate? Will currencies be reset, perhaps even backed by assets?


    Is this an engineered collapse to set up a world economic governance via trade agreements and international institutions? It is wise to be better prepared for the changes in progress.
