The senior members of the annual Davos skiing jolly (aka World Economic Forum) have published a damning indictment of those in charge of shaping the future for life on Earth. I could more easily accept that verdict if the Klosters crowd was in turn willing to accept some level of blame for it.
It’s hard not to sigh with a thin smile on reading the WEF’s image of itself:
‘The World Economic Forum is an independent and impartial International Organization for Public-Private Cooperation. Its objective is to improve the state of the world. It does not promote any political, commercial or personal interests’
I exchanged opinions with CLive Lord the founder of the Green Party of England and Wales just yesterday.
He Blogged lamenting being ignored by George Monbiot.
I dislike Mintbiot and said this to Clive
Monbiot is controlled opposition, a gatekeeper.
The apparent infection in the Mainstream media by the plants of various Mockingbird initiatives dating back to the cold war is more prevalent now than they have ever been.
I happen to think that both the Tragedy of the commons and also the Significance of Anthropogenic Carbon emissions is overstated and as a distraction from the Environmental despoilation and Infinite growth paradigm on a finite planet.
WHilst I disagree with you on the details You and I are on the same side, whilst Monbiot might agree with some of our positions it is important to understand that he speaks for an unspoken un-propagandised agenda

Your comment is awaiting moderation.
Could you tell me what you consider your main thrust to be?
I think we are basically on the same side regarding UBI of course and the infinite growth on a finite planet axiom is so clearly demonstrated by Bartlett and of course others.
I do wonder why this young lady was not Embraced as enthusiastically by the Oligarchs as Greta.

On Ostrum here is my blog of our discussion,
Al Gore is a total prick and his film The inconvenient truth is very very dumb.
I prepared this PDF in frustration at the very overblown claims made for a CO2 Anthropogenic control knob. King Canute is alive and well and living in IPCC land.

Conference on the poWorld
(WEA)litical economy of economic metrics
28th January to 25th February, 2013
Proposed new metric: the Perpetual Debt
It is my contention that a critical metric in economics is missing. I call it the
Perpetual Debt Level. This is the amount of bank credit money in circulation that
is not available on time nor free of any other debt, to extinguish the debt to a bank
that created it. This creates a borrow from Peter to pay Paul and vice versa
Perpetual Debt situation in which the amount of the principal involved can never
shrink, and the timing of its delivery can never slow down without causing
mathematically inevitable defaults. Therefore, to avoid such defaults, it is, in
practice, necessary to maintain growth of the money supply at all times. (1) I
further claim that there is no escape from this destructive arithmetic problem
within the concept of money as a quantity of a thing-in-itself, and especially
within the current practice of money created as a debt-of-itself. The only remedy is
radical, a total transformation of our concept of money.
The Banking System, Itself, is the ROOT CAUSE of Money System Instability
by Paul Grignon
1.THE INTEREST WAS NOT CREATED
2. ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD
3. SHORTAGE OF PRINCIPAL?
4. NON-PAYMENT IS A PRIMARY CAUSE OF INSTABILITY
5. MORALITY IS NOT THE ISSUE HERE – THE DESIGN IS
6. “SAME MONEY LENT TWICE” (diagrammed explanation)
7. COMPOUND INTEREST IS ALSO “SAME MONEY LENT TWICE”
8. ALL DEBT-PRINCIPAL IS LENT TWICE
9. BANKS CREATE MONEY vs. BANKS LEND DEPOSITORS’ MONEY
10. WHAT IS THE FINAL SITUATION HERE?
11. IS THIS AN ACTUAL SHORTAGE THAT DE-STABILIZES THE SYSTEM?
12. GROWTH TO INFINITY IS ADVERTISED
13. 100% SHORTAGE OF PRINCIPAL
14. INHERENT GROWTH IMPERATIVE
15. ARE ALL DEPOSITS AVAILABLE TO BE EARNED BY BORROWERS?
16. SIMPLE INTEREST PAID N times is UNBOUNDED if N is UNBOUNDED
17. BANKS CAN CREATE MONEY TO BUY ANYTHING!
Why is our money system unstable?
