Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
"I think we saw in late 2008 the end of the intermediated market, and that we will see an evolution via a dis-intermediated 'Energy Economy' market possibly one day to a Gift Economy/Economy of Abundance."

That's so cute. Sort of anti-doomer prattle.

There will never be a lack of grasping hands after the surplus, and they're much, much quicker than the government.

Align culture with our nature. Ot else!

Most people realise that a smaller % of something is better than 100% of nothing.

And most people are quite capable of co-operation to a common purpose to create, share and exchange surplus value - and by 'value' I do not mean financial claims over value created by middlemen.
