Is Our Monetary Structure a Systemic Cause for Financial Instability? Evidence and Remedies from Nature (April 2010)

Is Our Monetary Structure a Systemic Cause for Financial Instability?  Evidence and Remedies from Nature (April 2010) | money money money | Scoop.it

Abstract — Fundamental laws govern all complex flow systems, including natural ecosystems, economic and financial systems. Natural ecosystems are practical exemplars of sustainability: enduring, vital, adaptive. The sustainability of any complex flow system can be measured with a single metric as an emergent property of its structural diversity and interconnectivity; it requires a balance in emphasis between efficiency and resilience.  The urgent message for economics from nature is that the monoculture of national currencies, justified on the basis of market efficiency, generates structural instability in our global financial system. Economic sustainability therefore requires diversification in types of currencies, specifically through complementary currencies.

EconoMonitor : RGE Analysts » Europe’s Destructive Creation: Why the Euro’s Biggest Problem is the Flawed Crisis Narrative

EconoMonitor : RGE Analysts » Europe’s Destructive Creation: Why the Euro’s Biggest Problem is the Flawed Crisis Narrative | money money money | Scoop.it

What are the causes of the eurozone crisis? As basic as this question may be, European policymakers’ typical understanding of the causes of the crisis is incomplete at best. As a result, the approach to solving the crisis has been, and continues to be, inappropriate in several ways. If the crisis has one merit, though, it is that it can serve as a pedagogical opportunity to understand the deeper origins of Europe’s troubles.

The Morality of Moneylending: A Short History - The Objective Standard

It seems that every generation has its Shylock—a despised financier blamed for the economic problems of his day. A couple of decades ago it was Michael Milken and his “junk” bonds. Today it is the mortgage bankers who, over the past few years, lent billions of dollars to home buyers—hundreds of thousands of whom are now delinquent or in default on their loans. This “sub-prime mortgage crisis” is negatively affecting the broader financial markets and the economy as a whole. The villains, we are told, are not the borrowers—who took out loans they could not afford to pay back—but the moneylenders—who either deceived the borrowers or should have known better than to make the loans in the first place. And, we are told, the way to prevent such problems in the future is to clamp down on moneylenders and their industries; thus, investigations, criminal prosecutions, and heavier regulations on bankers are in order.
