Now I think I’m beginning to see the challenge for myself. You’re talking about making the national currency a representation of the available resources, like labor and natural resources rather than a debt. It’s almost like we want to make banking a public utility rather than a private profit center.
I’m thinking now of Henry George and Adam Smith, economists who were wary of the concentration of wealth. I think I read somewhere that in their minds, there were no “employers”, we’d just be a nation of free agents.
I don’t know if I’m following you well, but I can see that I will have to reconsider my notions of money again.
Thanks again for sharing and encouraging me to furrow my brow.
