CH Smith has been writing about economic and associated social issues for a long time. I first learned his name the day a friend of mine and I sent each other links to a blog post of his at the same time, both equally excited by the insight that explained what we had thought was very dumb behavior on the part of banks and fund managers. Both of us and several of our friends have read the blog daily since, and subscribe to his newsletter. I have exchanged email with him once in a while through the years, tho telling you that is me bragging.
"A Radically Beneficial World" is a fundamental analysis of what is wrong with the modern organization of the world and the institutions that organize it and a comprehensive plan to fix it. It does that, and I am impressed with the synthesis and understanding of the system-level constraints any solution has to meet, the avoided problems of scaling.
It seems to me the insights that the current organization of the economy and associated financial institutions guarantees the results we are seeing, the poverty and unemployment, and guarantees that the situation will continue to get worse. The goal must therefore be to escape that, and avoid the structures and incentives that have FUBARed our world-system.
I think the analysis and considerations of a community-based economy cover the main bases and leave more than enough flexibility to handle problems.Read more ›
“...I draw my idea of the form of government from a principle in nature, which no art can overturn, viz. that the more simple any thing is, the less liable it is to be disordered, and the easier repaired when disordered;” by thomas paine, common sense
his proposed system of money has major weakness about, "price discovery" built in function of money. if you read classic i-pencil, it clearly illustrates how millions of people all over the world, in different fields, somehow cooperate production of a pencil, in very efficient manner,- due to price discovery.
as in obama or hillary care, smith money system spends large portion of his proposal about how to punish, find, prosecute cheaters. that alone suggests, without vigorous monitoring, money creation would be abused.
i like his daily column very much, but i must question this new invention. i appreciate his efforts. we need something radically different from current one, for sure.
