Economy


Using community way to start cc systems is like using the electric starter for a gas engine -- it just gets the main machine going, and gets out of the way.

Thereafter the economy will adjust to apply the available currencies to meet local needs with local resources wherever possible. The new money will create a new layer to the market, which will be constrained not by any lack of money, but by the realities of local resources.

This economy will closely reflect the origins of the word -- the management of the household -- the material and energetic considerations of what is actually there and what can be done with it.

In contrast, "conventional economists" are focused so much on the in and outs of money itself, they have lost all appreciation of what is actually happening.

Cargo cults and growth for growth's sake.

It's the stupid economy -- truly, madly and deeply stupid.
