Kingonomics: Twelve Innovative Currencies To Transform Your Business & Life, Inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by Rodney Sampson
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.

[venue] Many native Atlantans will remember getting dressed in their finest to visit the Davison-Paxson department store on the now historic corner of Peachtree and Ellis Streets. Davison’s had its origins in 1891 when the Davison & Douglas company opened its doors in downtown Atlanta. Journalist Henry Grady had just died, railroads were beginning to change the face of the South, business was booming and women everywhere were needing a place to shop. They came to Davison & Douglas to buy everything from hosiery to home furnishings.
The downtown Davison’s store was a classic example of a downtown shopping experience. The main entrance on Peachtree featured a very stately marble-floored cosmetics and jewelry area, which is now the Grand Atrium of 200 Peachtree Special Events and Conference Center. Modeled after Macy’s flagship store on Herald Square in New York, the refurbished mezzanine overlooking the atrium level gazes out on the brilliantly polished crystal chandeliers. Truly, the historic elegance of yesteryear has emerged into the wondrous special events and conference center which we are proud to call 200 Peachtree.
