See:

Paper co-authored by myself and Drs. Larch Maxey and Victoria Hurth of Plymouth University.

Powerswitch-quality discussion very welcome! Cool

TEQ's, operating in a debt based monetary system, amount to no more than moving the deckchairs around. Which, in and of itself, is no bad thing in principle in that at least everyone gets their fair share of deckchairs. That won't stop the ship sinking though. To do that, we have to wrest control of the money supply back from the usurers. And that will require bloodshed. The people benefiting the most from the current arrangements will simply not give up their wealth and power without a fight.

I'm delighted to report that our paper is now the most-read in the history of the Carbon Management journal, with over 3,000 downloads to date, and some interesting comments flowing in. Seems it was worth taking the radical step of making it readable! Wink

Yes, I agree. One paves the way for the other - but neither will happen without serious upheaval. Maybe by then it won't matter.
