New Economy
The World of Our Dreams

I find hope in the fact that for all our wondrous differences, at the core we humans all want most of the same things. Fortunately, what we want aligns with where we need to go.

Our Human Nature

Greed is a sign of moral and psychological immaturity. Psychologically and morally mature adults are caring, cooperative, and honest.

Greed is Not a Virtue

Wall Street's celebration and promotion of moral perversion as a virtue must be exposed and condemned.

We’re Number One!

Americans are number one in quite a few areas—but they’re not all accomplishments to be proud of.

A System Designed to Crash

To create a stable functioning financial system, we must first understand why the current financial system holds policy makers hostage to Wall Street interests. It is more than just political corruption.

Phantom Wealth and False Expectations

Playing money games to profit from false expectations is not the same as investing in jobs that produce real value to meet real needs

Clueless Economists, Smart Ecologists

To successfully address climate change and extreme poverty, the mindset of the economist must give way to the mindset of the ecologist.

A Real-Market Alternative

Our current economic choice is not between capitalism and communism. It is between locally accountable Main Street markets and Wall Street central planning by predatory global financiers.

Good Debt, Bad Debt

Is using debt to create money a bad idea? It depends on where the money goes.

Money From Nothing?

Through their accounting slight of hand, Wall Street illusionists convince even themselves that they are enriching society rather than preying on it.

System Failure? Look Upstream

Why is our economic system consigning billions of people to degrading poverty, destroying Earth's ecosystem, and tearing up the social fabric of civilized community?

The Illusion of Money

Liberation from subservience to Wall Street begins with a recognition that money is just a number of no intrinsic value.
