Of course Facebooks proposal is wrongheaded. It just adds another corporate structural impediment to what is actually needed which is a new monetary and financial paradigm/pattern/concept that firmly and ethically guides a new publicly administered non-profit national banking and financial system. The trick is to discern the new paradigm’s concept which is monetary grace as in gifting, to be precise direct and reciprocal monetary gifting, implemented at the pivotally powerful policy point of retail sale (because its the ending point of the entire legitimate economic/productive process where production becomes consumption, the summing point for all costs including profit and finally the economic factor terminal expression point for inflation). Hence, paired with a universal dividend, a 50% discount/rebate policy at that point simultaneously ends individual income scarcity and any possibility of price or asset inflation.

And the new national non-profit banking system is mandated to implement and distribute the monetary gifting policies into “the many hands of the individual”…..not a corporate elite.

The Economy As The Matrix

Of course economics is an explanatory disaster….because it hasn’t cognited on the fact that the money system and its monopolistic paradigm IS THE ECONOMIC PROBLEM.

No, it’s not just interest like the monetary cranks fixate on because MATHEMATICALLY you can always inject a flow of credit/debt into the economy that MATHEMATICALLY palliates the fact that temporally the system/pattern never works out…MATHEMATICALLY. Well why doesn’t it turn out mathematically? BECAUSE THE SYSTEM AND ITS MONOPOLISTIC PATTERN-PARADIGM…..IS THE ACTUAL PROBLEM.

YOU HAVE TO THINK IN TERMS OF THE PATTERN-PARADIGM….TO FIX THE PATTERN-PARADIGM.

TRY THINKING ABOUT IT THAT WAY. PARADIGMATICALLLY, THAT IS.

The economic problem is precisely like the Matrix. It’s not obsessive machine thinking ONLY, and it’s not human idiocy or even systematic thinking ONLY. It’s an integration of the two that creates a thirdness greater oneness out of the two THAT RAISES OUR CONSCIOUSNESS REGARDING THE PATTERN/PARADIGM.

It’s when agent Smith realizes he’s not right. It’s when Neo realizes he must give himself/his consciousness to the machines….in order to bring grace/flow/raised consciousness/permanent but not final progress to the system….because there’s no end to history….but there is an infinity of up so far as paradigm perception/grace-consciousness is concerned.

The Real Question We Need To Ask

The real question we need to be asking ourselves is: Do we owe parasitic private finance and their monopolistic paradigm of Debt Only guaranteed dominating control over everyone and every other actually legitimate economic business model? You have to be paradighmatically hypnotized to get that question wrong, and paradighmatically unconscious to not even ask it.

The current monetary paradigm IS the economic problem. Think about it.

Posted To RWER Blog Regarding Ecological Sanity, How To See It and Accomplish It

Obviously certain consumption patterns will need to change. However, if you can’t see that private finance makes every attempt to get to step one of ecological sanity “too expensive” then you’re just not looking. We’ll never get to step one until we have a non-profit publicly administered national banking and financial system that funds itself, the essential government projects that can enable us to survive and is mandated to execute the monetary policies that will reduce the prices of the consumer products that will get us there. No wonder we’ve made no progress toward survival for over 40 years.

Economists and economic pundits are generally off in thrice removed mathematical and/or theoretical abstraction. Hence they don’t look at the actual economic process itself and so they miss the incredibly powerful ending/tipping/pivoting point where production becomes consumption aka retail sale, and where a simple algebraic operation will effect a new paradigm in the money system and the ability to swiftly progress toward an ecologically sane economy.
Such need to do as much zen wall gazing on an illustration of the point of retail sale at the terminal ending point of the economic process as is necessary for them to come into present time and cognite on its existence, significance and potential for monetary policy

Me:  Better acculturate leisure and positive purpose before AI eliminates 40% of present employment in the next 15-20 years or it will be a social disaster after it happens.

JD:  Craig, let me recommend this little book by Yanis Varofakis, “Talking to my Daughter” a brief history of Capitalism, and economics. Look in particular at chapter 6. I think it applies to your ideas. It’s a very good read and very entertaining as the target is his then 15 yr old.

Me:  If you can go to the grocery store or any place else that has things you want to buy and get it for $5 today when you had to pay $10 yesterday your purchasing power is doubled and the business you bought it from just had the money available to buy their goods just doubled too. That’s the 15 year old message I have been declaring here for years and the economists and economic pundits here can’t seem to comprehend it. The problem isn’t mine.

JD:  The energy equation you rely on is not going to last. When energy oil say was costing 1% of production was one thing which kept us going til 1970. Now its 10% and going up all the time. This shortage of cheap energy will destroy everything. What you want at half price will be 20x by then if it even exists.

Me:  And nothing can be or will be done about it, right? What a counsel of despair and hogwash! Listen to the latest video available to all on Steve Keen’s patreon site.

You see the REAL economic problem has always been the monetary PARADIGM and how it has de-stabilized the economy….for the entire history of human civilization. That’s what Steve Keen RE-discovered and ALMOST cognited on when he correctly observed that neo-classicals ignored money, debts and banks….”because if they did they’d have to confront the fact of how the money SYSTEM de-stabilizes the economy.” That’s a quote from one of his recent videos. He correctly recognized the problem. The problem with that is he still didn’t cognite ON THE SOLUTION, that is, the new monetary paradigm.

Wisdom/Paradigm Perception is the recognition of both the problem AND the solution. Intellectuals so love their problems. They’ll obsess about them until they’re tired of doing so and then move on to another one….like Steve Keen has with his de-bunking of Nordhaus’s recent predictions about energy’s effects. Of course the SOLUTION to the energy PROBLEM…is still recognizing the new monetary PARADIGM.

Survival trumps all other considerations which means no matter how much money and subsidization it may take to discover the new sources to replace fossil fuels you have to create them….and the twin 50% discount/rebate policies, universal dividend and non-profit publicly administered national banking and financial system of Wisdomics-Gracenomics are the precise policies and structural changes necessary to do that without either enforcing systemic monetary austerity or creating wild inflation.

Reverse The High Costs of Green Technology With Monetary Gifting

Economists and climate theorists seem stumped by the high costs of green tecnologies. This is simply old/current monetary paradigm thinking. With a non-profit publicly administered national banking system and the monetary policies of Wisdomics-Gracenomics you could immedately reduce the costs of green technology consumer products by 75% and with the stakes being so high (species and planetary survival) the costs of developement of green technologies could be virtually eliminated so progress toward survivable carbon footprint could be accelerated tremendously.

It’s really just a matter of getting one of finance’s feet off the individual’s neck and the other one off the costliness brake toward green research and technology.

It’s so frustrating to know the new paradigm concept and its aligned policies and see economists being ignorant of them.  We have prosperity and the fast forward march toward ecological survival if they would simply awaken to them.  Meanwhile finance is saying, “No, you have no right to end our monopoly paradigm of Debt Only for the sole form and vehicle for the distribution of money/credit. We have every right to dominate everyone, every legitimate and actually productive business model, buy or cow every ignorant  and/or ethically challenged  politician and declare ecological survival “too expensive”.

Just look at it. It’s stupid to not make such policies of paradigm change the immediate reality.

Posted To RWER Blog 06/08/2019 The New Paradigm and Action

Retail sale is currently the only legitimate terminal ending, cost and price summing and terminal expression point for any and all forms of inflation for every consumer product and service including “big ticket” asset items like autos and homes. Thus a 50% discount/rebate monetary policy implemented at that point and time has immutably beneficial effects for all economic agents individual and commercial and ends the austerity enforcing monopolistic paradigm that private finance has used to dominate, manipulate and de-stabilize economies for the entire history of human civilization. That conclusion is history according to David Graeber and Michael Hudson, the present and continuing debt deflation inevitability according to Steve Keen and the very policy expression of Wisdomics-Gracenomics’ identification of the single concept defining the new paradigm of Abundantly Direct and Reciprocal Monetary Gifting.

We don’t need mathematical and scientistically hide bound inadequate attempts to statistically discern the problem and solution we need historically enlightening paradigm perception and action to implement the new one.
