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

Just not markets with value-extracting middlemen - public or private - in them. That's so Last Century.

It changes the game entirely if intermediaries are bypassed, and that is precisely what they are doing because with conventional financing and funding terminally fucked it is their only remaining option.

There is no profit or loss or double entry book-keeping in such a bottom up networked market, but there is shared risk and reward, and there is shared surplus and there is a meaningful unit of account for as long as the market persists pending the arrival of a gift economy.

The accountancy of such a networked market is interesting.  

But I won't go there just yet. :-)

Ideology? I'm not into ideology. I'm into seeing 'what works' to do what we need to do, and seeing who joins in.

In my view we won't see a Party create Policy in future: we'll see the Policy create the Party/Movement.
