The Venus Project

Dear all (Rishab would say: my dear favourite people in the universe 🙂

as time goes by, another year comes along, and I’ve hardly ever made up my thoughts about everything that happened this year!,  but still, I’ll be ready to make the most out of 2009  (I hope ;-).

Of course, this crisis will still be with us, I reckon for a few years at least. But we should really try and see it as a great opportunity to create a better way of living and working, producing and consuming, even though we all know that the odds are usually against that kind of dream.  

Anyway, to keep a long story short: Have you ever watched “zeitgeist addendum”??

www.zeitgeistmovie.com

I think it is even better than the first movie because everything in it can be proven, one can’t claim that it is “conspiracy rubbish”.  It’s all about how the IMF enslaves poorer countries in the name of “developing” them, about the global “corporatocracy” that really drives our corrupt politicians and their decisions – and what we can or could do in order to improve life on this planet.

I’m still not sure what I should think about the Venus Project, it might really be too utopian and therefore fail dramatically and, as usual, with bloodshed. But it sounds great!

So please have a look and tell me what you think. It’s described in the film.

Also, Rishab wants to introduce “Peace Economics” soon. I’m curious!

And I’ll contribute more about the way money is created and about the interest rate function soon, because this is something we have to change in the future. This is where most of the trouble comes from.

So, let’s hope for the best, folks – and see you soon here at spirinomics.wordpress.com.

Happy New Year 2009 🙂

Yours Economicsfairy
