Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The depression was caused by fiscal measures.

Only fiscal measures will do ....

So, how is it a good thing that the fiscal authorities have had the wheel come off in their hands?

They've left a massive vacuum for 'reality-based' policies to fill, bottom up.

That is precisely what I've been busy working on doing, by prototyping, along with a network of individuals who are joining in.

eg this project has been 18 months's work so far, but has just reached the End of the Beginning.

I wrote the constitution; co-founded the Trust; brought in the Prince's Charities; and wrote the outline Business Plan.

In a networked 21st century political economy, the parties will not create the policies: the policies will create the parties, or rather, the social movements.

The institutions of the future will not be organisations but will rather be consensual agreements for self organisation to a common purpose:

I'm working on two such movements with global application:

(a) NewClear - aimed at financial resilience, and which is a participative, decentralised financial network (and updates previous work); and

(b) Natural Grid - aimed at resource resilience, and which will be a participative, least energy cost (as opposed to least dollar cost), resource network.
