The Institute for Open Economic Networks (I-Open) is an educational, economic and workforce development initiative based in Cleveland, Ohio U.S.A.

Each week we feature the top three most watched interviews in the I-Open library (right). The top four most played videos last week April 1-8, 2014 are:

• The Renewal of Culture ~ Chris Reynolds, French Teacher; Adjunct Professor, Creativity Studies, Ashland University; Musician and songwriter; Traditional Healer; Master's degree in Rites of Passage in Post Modern Philosophy
• The Nature in Leadership-Introduction ~ Jackie Lowe Stevenson, Founder and CEO, The Spirit of Leadership

Stories are contributed to the library by a network of entrepreneurial developers in Open Source Economic Development. Each person here shares their perspective on how things work in emerging economies. Most have said they learned far more than what they gave.
