Well. it's all about you. The Initiative for Moderate Economic Behavior is an appetizer for your mind. It is all about triggering discussion and making people think about their personal economic demands.
Take the following as a starting point.
In a world confronted with unprecedented challenges a new sense of moderation among those countries taking the lion's share in global wealth is a quintessential answer to many problems. Having multiplied our economic prosperity in the last four decades many have acquired the attitude that all the wealth we possess is something we naturally deserve, something that is due to us. It's not only that we are unwilling to share our abundance. What should concern us is the stance towards our economic demands. We deem it a personal right to get everything we want and can afford. And not in the slightest do we care about the consequences. We have infantilized ourselves instead of living up to the responsibility we should undertake as citizens. It's abusing our freedom to solely use it a guarantor of wealth. Liberty comes with responsibility.
