MATTERS IN THE AIR …. Reminding each other of opportunities before us:


1. Robin Smith advocates the study of this http://gco2e.blogspot.com/2010/08/hmm-capitalist-manifesto.html and welcomes responses.
The Capitalist Manifesto is, of course, one of the books informing the development of Binary Economics and its latest book development (the subject has greatly developed in recent years) is Rodney’s The Modern Universal Paradigm. The best way to find out what is happening is to go to http//:www.binaryeconomics.net In the History page you can see something about The Capitalist Manifesto and also see a one hour interview of Louis Kelso by Harold Channer.


2. THE RECOVERY AND RE-ENACTMENT OF SOCIAL CREDIT July 31st, 2010 http://www.hinterlandvoice.com.au/the-recovery-and-re-enactment-of-so… By James Reed ….A brief review such as this one cannot do justice to a truly magnificent book such as Frances Hutchinson’s “Understanding the Financial System: Social Credit Rediscovered” (Jon Carpenter Publishing, Charlbury 2010).

Ellen Brown posted on Opednews — “WHAT A GOVERNMENT CAN DO WITH ITS OWN BANK:THE REMARKABLE MODEL OF THE COMMONWEALTH BANK OF AUSTRALIA” http://www.opednews.com/articles/WHAT-A-GOVERNMENT-CAN-DO-W-by-Ellen-Brown-100806-475.html

Did you know that in Britain today there is no ceiling on the amount that lenders can charge for credit? The UK’s poorest pay the highest price for credit in Europe and some lenders are charging the equivalent of 3000% APR. This is legal loan sharking, a national scandal which must be stopped. Today a broad coalition of activists, campaigners, citizens groups and MPs have echoed our call for an end to legal loan sharking. Please join them by signing up to our statement. http://action.compassonline.org.uk/endlegalloansharking


Note that ‘Matters in the Air’ for the following Wednesday fall into place as matters arise and can be seen at each stage on http://www.ccmj.org/members/news.php Let Peter know if you have anything to add or ask.
