I have touched on the activities of alternative economics in past postings under the BANK ALTERNATIVES category in the Blog. Seriously though, what is being proposed looks to be a model of sustainable economics that can change things dramatically by a party hoping to run in the upcoming 2014 general elections in New Zealand. The New Economics Party are building support and one policy is support or are part of the growing phenomenon of TIME BANKING. I recommend you visit their site, join and ignite a great concept that will contribute immensely to returning the rule of law back to the people and not the mind controlled politicians currently purporting to pass legislation ‘willy nilly’ and often in secret to suit the agenda of a minority few greed merchants. Sure they are encouraged by their own perks and alto-egotistic frailty. Deidre Kent “the Tax system, it is illogical to tax, work, sales and trade on a finite planet of resources” , has written Books and articles on the subject of social and economic reform and they are well worth a read. Tax is paid by users of the resources rather than any workers employed is my basic understanding of the model proposed. Good Luck with an absolutely fantastic economic model that suits everyone yet has the potential to spread wealth and as a consequence reform social and economic inequality. She is the author of a fantastic publication called Healthy Money, Healthy Planet – developing sustainability through new money systems. For an in depth article on the truth of the current money system in this Blog try this. Is the current system sustainable?? HMM.. well the trees are still falling, carbon dioxide is still pumping out into the atmosphere, weather is indifferent – just ask those poor souls in the North its freezing up there.
