Publisher's Summary

While most know of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s sweeping dream of equality and freedom for all, what many do not realize is just how keenly focused he was on economic issues, particularly in his later years.

Dr. King believed without economic opportunity, we do not have the chance to pursue happiness. It was, in fact, while planning the Poor People's March, a dramatic stand on economic issues, that his voice was forever silenced.

In his final book Dr. King posed the question, Where do we go from here? The answer lies in Kingonomics, a 21st-century interpretation of his economic vision translated through the eyes of Dr. Rodney Sampson, a globally established economic innovator, business developer, and highly successful serial entrepreneur.

With 12 currencies (including service, innovation, and reciprocity), Sampson takes pertinent ideas from the life and works of Dr. King and, by combining them with real-life experiences, produces a guide through which one can realize their full potential and personal power. Success does not discriminate, and the road map to it is contained in the pages of this revolutionary new work.

A truly terrible book

Couldn't finish it. It was a whole lot of feel good fluff without any true examples or reasoning The nerrator's propensity to pronounce words, like exspecially etc, wouldn't have bothered me had the content been worthwhile, but it didn't help things.

Worth the listen!

Great title, and written with a clarity throughout, representing that King had a broader picture of the healing needed to bring full recovery from the wounds of a past he envisioned. We know about the stand against social injustice, but sometimes miss the real-behind-the-scenes work and vision he had about repairing economic disparities. Amazing how King’s messages jive so well with the positive modern business constructs and examples covered by Sampson in these chapters. Jotted notes on all 12 currencies and hope to push out a note about each to add value to someone as I encourage them to take a listen too! Thank you Bishop Sampson for all that you do as a business and spiritual leader in our world!

The Freedom Struggle Continues!

This is a great approach in helping us all to continue living and pursuing Dr. King's dream. Take up the mantle of economic liberation and free yourself and as many as you can.

Great information

The author did an excellent job of taking Dr. Martin Luther King Jr speeches and writings to bring a modern perspective of King's ideology. The information is resourceful and provided suggestions that could possibly work.
