As Paul Hawken (The Next Economy (Ballantine 1983)) succinctly put it in his memorable address to Portland University’s graduate class in May of 2009,

civilization needs a new operating system” and fast.

And Central Banks and Governments should support the efforts of innovation in that field – you know what happened in the 1930s and afterwards WW2 with 61 Million people dead. ww2

Because many of the socio-economic rules under which we operate were created under a worldview that failed to recognize that the earth is a living system and that every form of life has its unique and valuable place and purpose in sustaining the larger web of life.

Lietar is advocating a “Monetary Ecosystems” (multiple currencies not only country-wise but also purpose wise) instead of a “Monetary Monoculture” which would bring about more stability.

“The structural issue is the lack of diversity – there needs to be an optimal balance between resilience and efficiency prof-lietaer-tedx-berlin-30-11-2009_9-balance-in-natural-networks-slide-sustainability-two-factors-efficiency-resiliance– conditions of stability of complex flow network (like human body – blood circulatory system)”

monopoly = monoculture like in agriculture is more efficient but it is very fragile/instable, like a airplane with one motor – if the motor breaks you are screwed.

With agriculture: Monoculture is not sustainable – you will need to use a lot of chemicals (fertilizers and pesticides).

We have lost the way. Greed has poisoned mens souls - we are destroying the earth - but it is very profitable

“i have never met anybody who owns a monopoly – who did not try to keep it.”
