Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
"And it's not just money that is idle"

I only mentioned resources as being idle, not money. It should be beside the point whether money is "idle" or not: if it isn't beside the point, the monetary system is broken by design.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.

To disguise that fact great effort has gone into 'educating' the public so that they understand that the present system is 'natural' and that all of the alternatives are horrible and un-(whichever country of which you are a citizen.)
