We need to remember reality, especially on the meaning of capital. Here are a few topics toward that end.
Remember that infinite growth using finite resources isn’t reality.
Brian Czech – Degrowth Toward a Steady-State Economy – CACOR series
Our speaker today is Dr. Brian Czech, executive director of the Center for the Advancement of the Steady State Economy. From 1999-2017, he served in the headquarters of the US Fish & Wildlife Service. During most of that time (2001-2015), he was also a visiting professor at Virginia Tech. He has written three books, including Supply Shock: Economic Growth at the Crossroads and the Steady State Solution. He is a regular contributor at the Steady State Herald. Today he will define & describe degrowth & the steady state economy as the sustainable solution to our overshoot of planetary limits. Some over-developed countries will need a reasonable period of degrowth toward a steady state economy. Countries with widespread poverty should be encouraged & assisted to develop in peace & security, free of the forced debt & environmental destruction of corporate exploitation. In other words, moving away from unsustainable, destructive growth will require a tremendous level of “steady statesmanship” in international diplomacy—the greatest challenge of the 21st century.

The artificial economy built on symbols such as the dollar, rather than actual reality, promotes a use of humanity in the exploiting system as surely as it uses natural resources.
Corporate Food Giants Have Abandoned Indianapolis’ Northeast Corridor. In Their Stead, A Movement For Food Sovereignty Is Seeing Progress.
In Indianapolis’ Northeast Corridor, a predominantly Black area with a growing Latinx population, more than half of residents live in a food desert.
“Of the 83 stores selling food in our area, only 11 sell fresh vegetables. More than half are convenience stores,” said Ashley Gurvitz, executive director of the United Northeast Community Development Corporation (UNEC), which submitted the winning proposal on behalf of NEC residents. The area has seen grocery store chains come and go for decades — or outright refuse to enter.—end of popularresistance info–
The pro-growth economy uses the symbol of the dollar to the extent that currently, when one hears discussion about the economy, one’s mind goes to the stock market rather than to the economy of local communities. This is the smokescreen of money exchangers who are the middlemen gathering monetary wealth at the expense of people and nature. De-growth seems to work within the actual economy of nature and people, leveling the playing field back to the integrity of nature rather than the strained presumption of business practice.
Hierarchical Establishment censors FACTS away from the public to capture symbols of value in the illusion of money. This system is inflicted upon the public when costs of living such as taxes, food, and energy, expect payment in the illusion of the dollar. And so the compliance by the public is secured. The cost is humanity and nature. Because the dollar is no longer used as a symbol but rather as reality, the cost devolves onto humanity and nature, which are being drained of substance.
One believes CASSE as discussed by Brian Czech offers a realistic and workable concept for righting this anomaly.
Meanwhile, let’s consider FACTS.—-

But studies show that the Sandinista Front is very popular among the Nicaraguan people, who enjoy a high quality of life compared to their neighbors.–end of mronline ifo–

Please recall the labeling of those who attempted to point out the political history of Joe Biden as racist, by the American meritocracy.
