Economic dignity is a phrase developed by Economic Leadership Consultant Andre Thomas, that describes a city or nation that has​ created an environment of economic opportunity so that all of its citizens can have access to ladders of upward mobility without sacrificing its values, ideals and distinctive cultures.

The phrase economic dignity was developed after observing national leaders embrace the thinking of a ‘pawn’ and turn their potentially great nations into ‘Pawn Nation States’ on the chessboard of global affairs.  A pawn is a person used by others for their purposes at the expense of the person’s interests. A ‘Pawn Nation’ is a nation used by other “King Nations”, Multinational Companies and International Investors for their purposes at the expense of the interest of the “Pawn Nation.” In my role as a consultant to governments, I watched as policymakers and political leaders rejoice when “King Nation-States,” Multinational Companies and International Investors found temporal value in their ‘Pawn Nation States.’ I watched in disbelief as these leaders sold and traded the future of their nations because they didn’t know how to create greatness and economic dignity for their nations through people. This led me to passionately study the subject and learn how some former ‘Pawn Nation States’ evolved and became “King Nation- States” within a generation. I was surprised and delighted by what I discovered, as I searched for the root principles and philosophies, that produced the fruit of transformation into economic dignity and greatness for these nations. As I studied, it became clear that all countries that experienced the transformation from economic dependence to economic independence and then economic interdependence shared a common philosophy at the core. Their systems were not always the same; their industries were not always the same, the strengths and weaknesses of their culture were not always the same, their core industries were not always the same, but the thinking that produced greatness was the same.
