We are entering a new economic time and must Actually Economize instead
of saving human time while millions are unemployed. We must
reconsider "productivity" in a time of global warming where natural resources are priced at the cost of extraction. Our financial signals are all wrong. One true concept is taxing bads, not goods.
For example providing bonuses for borrowing short and lending long
ought to be taxed at somewhere between 99 and 200%. It is perverse.
Fact is a billionaire is the product of a broken tax system and a broken tax system makes governance next to impossible.
If we expect to grow our way out of this recession and factor China and India into the mix we will be consuming eight planets worth of
resources per year.... untenable. We must have a functional, low
overhead financial system in place of the current predatory one which is in slow, but accelerating collapse.
Without costing, putting a price on, environmental consequence we will advance into mass migrations and war.
