How We took Our Economic Insanity for Granted
Posted 2/22/11


One would think that the crash would set some people straight, but I am sure most the crooks on Wall Street are born and bred to do their business dirty. It's like the saying, "once a thief, always a thief."

I wouldn't go so far as to shift the economy of America to something where the laws prohibit capitalism, but I'd sure as hell like to see the people taken from the back pockets of tycoons. It has been said many time that we manage money like crap, and it can be said infinitely more times so long as we remain so far in debt that it might not be paid off in the lifetimes of a generation or two. The Japanese and Chinese own most of our debt, and dealing with that will take more than hipsters being put through a crash course in economics.

Then don't. When the problem is that the "tycoons" managed to bought the airwaves with paid advertisements, that's how the market kept investing them through centralized manipulations. You know, smokes and mirrors and all that jazz during the Superbowl, or any other mainstream events.

Decentralize their power-base by buying local, investing in alternative business, and engage in "zero-waste" lifestyle choice. Just don't believe that there's only one way of capitalism, which is to invest in mainstream.

Yes! We can boycott junk in favor of the real goods. That's one peaceable way to eliminate undesirables. Without the almighty power of currency, what do the power-base's have? Precisely dick, aside from their thumbs in their colons as they sit on their failures.

You know me, always the idea man who sees patterns and possibilities among the confusion and complexity at the edge of reality. And you're welcome.

Well here's some good news for alternative business designs: biomimicry. And the designing potentials are as promising as its 3.8 billions years long of resume.
