How the film
"ACRONYM" is Saving Lives

Mountain Time Media Logo
Members of the Mountain Time Media team were given the distinct honor this week of screening the film ACRONYM: The Cross-Generational Battle With PTSD to members of the House Committee on Veterans Affairs on Capitol Hill. The film focuses on a sad reality: 22 veterans kill themselves and 75 attempt EVERY DAY - but looks ahead with hope and at alternative therapies available. Since its Veterans Day premiere, at least FOUR veterans (the oldest a Korean War vet) have sought treatment for the first time after seeing the film. To view our trailer and to support, please visit:

Technolink Member and Author Edward Delon’s book, A Constitutional Democracy – Voices and Votes, links the Constitution to politics and voting. It has recently been reviewed by Dr. Michael R. Winston and he has quoted:

“At a time of intense discussion about American democracy and our political system, Edward Delon's A Constitutional Democracy: Voices and Votes is a new resource for the intelligent public. I regard it as a timely asset for our civic culture, especially for those young people eager to understand how our government works. Teachers will also find it a useful source in American history and civics courses”

February 2016 Snapshot




Technolink Member
Terry O’Neill
Shares a SnapShot of His Economic Perspectives for 2016
“Exploring the New Abnormal”



Exploring the new abnormal: I expect global GDP growth to accelerate by a mere 0.2 percentage points in 2016. In my view, this tepid pace of expansion reflects the slump in potential growth across both DMs and EMs—a trend that points to a prolonged period of sluggish growth and low inflation ahead.

This new abnormal—has both cyclical and structural roots, with the chief cyclical element being demand weakness as a consequence of deleveraging, a process that began in the U.S. in 2008 and spread to Europe in 2010-11. Since 2013—following the Fed’s tapering of QE, the start of China’s slowdown and the end of the commodity super-cycle—deleveraging has been playing out in the EM world as well.

Waves of deleveraging amplify the risk of hysteresis, whereby the cyclical slowdown would morph into a secular one as a persistently depressed cycle chips away at trend growth.

Population aging is throwing up structural impediments to growth—lowering investment, reducing productivity gains and, in the face of unfunded pension systems across much of the world, raising desired savings. All of these shifts dampen demand and undercut growth.

Higher savings have failed to spark higher investment as a result of deleveraging and regulatory, economic and policy uncertainties, among other factors. And tech-sector innovation has yet to show up in total factor productivity growth.

Structural reforms have been inadequate. DM governments bear some of the blame, but EMs have been especially remiss on the reform front, failing to see the need for change in the boom years and fearing contraction in lean periods.

Rising inequality is another brake on growth, as average savings rates tend to rise when wealth and income are redistributed from labor to capital and wages are transformed into profits.
