The Latest Financial News from Beyond Money

Unfortunately, it’s not good news.

Tom Greco is the author of Money, and The End of Money and the Future of Civilization. He blogs over at Beyond Money, where he shares good information and bad news about the state of our economy.

These are some of his recent posts.

Dollar Debasement and its Eventual Loss of Purchasing Power

The Federal Reserve and the banking system have been monetizing (buying) U.S. government debt at an accelerating pace. So why haven’t we seen greater increases in prices?

The fact is, some prices, like food and energy, have increased over the past 2 or 3 years. Having lived much of that time abroad, I notice it when I return…

Banks Still Not Lending; Number of Problem Banks Rising

What Really Happens When the Sh**t Hits The Fan

Michael Panzner is a well regarded financial adviser who seems to have better insights than most financial commentators. I’ve recently finished reading his book, Financial Armageddon, which, written in early 2008, predicted the financial crisis that marked the beginning of the global financial meltdown and our ongoing economic depression. Panzner has written another book, When Giants Fall, which I’ve yet to read. He maintains two websites, Financial Armageddon, and An Economic Roadmap for the End of the American Era. Both are highly recommended.

In a recent post, Panzner cited a book by Fernando Ferfal Aguirre, titled, The Modern Survival Manual: Surviving the Economic Collapse, which is based on the actual experience of Argentina over the past 10 years. It’s not a Mad Max scenario, but it isn’t pretty. You can find a summary at Aguirre’s website.

And plenty more where that came from! Check out Tom’s blog and his books.


Q&A with Kate Raworth about her radical new book, DOUGHNUT ECONOMICS

Slack and Taut: Defining a System’s Resilience

A resilient future (or a resilient present, for that matter) needs to be slack, not taut. What do we mean? Core to the concept of a Lean Economy is understanding the need to move toward a “slack” market rather than one that is “taut.” When British economist David Fleming died unexpectedly in 2010, he left […] Read More

Prehistory of the Next American Revolution

What now? A new Revolution? If we are to counter the dangers both of corporate domination and of traditional forms of socialist statism, decentralization is essential—both of economic institutions and of political structure. We are at a point in our nation’s history that could, decades from now, be taught as the prehistory of the next […] Read More

The Seven-Point Protocol for a Lean Economy

In the future, what will our local economies look like? How will they function if there is little, to no, state or national support? The late David Fleming envisioned a post-capitalistic society that we could call “deep local” — in which all needs are met at the local level — from income to social capital […] Read More
