Before we can attempt to describe what Zenconomics is, we must first describe what it is not.
Zenconomics is not a financial advisory site and as such no information presented should be interpreted as financial advice. In fact, we could not be a financial advisory site even if it were our wish as this would require us to advocate a top-down financial plan and sell it to the masses. But we contend there is no such thing as a “one-size-fits-all” financial plan hence we would suggest you view any such advice quite apprehensively.
Additionally, Zenconomics is not affiliated with Zen Buddhism and our use of the word ‘Zen’ refers to the broad interpretation from the perspective of western culture. Wikipedia suggests that the word Zen can be translated approximately as “absorption” or “meditative state”. We associate Zen with Mindfulness in every aspect of life. Regardless of your preferred translation, Zen implies soundness of mind and an indomitable will and these are precisely the concepts that Zenconomics seeks to convey.
Zenconomics is about ideas and a way of thinking. We believe ideas shape individuals and individuals shape the world around us. Ideas dictate how an individual thinks, acts, and reacts. Ideas dictate how an individual views the world. Ideas cannot be classified as right or wrong and we do not think that they should be considered in such a way. Ideas can, however, be constructive or destructive. We are interested in promoting constructive ideas and rejecting destructive ideas.
The content published here at Zenconomics is intended to be thought-provoking and discussion-generating. We do not want to tell you what to do or what to think. After all, who is truly fit to tell another what to do or what to think?
