Some interesting comments about economy and money in this video...
""The source of wealth is the functional eco systems.
The products and services that we derive from those are derivatives. It's impossible for the derivatives to be more valuable than the source - and yet, in our economy now, as it stands, the products and services have monetary values. But the source, the functional eco systems are zero.
So this cannot be true. It's false!
So we've created a global institution of economic institutions, an economic theory, based on a flaw in logic. So, if we carry that flaw in logic from generation to generation, we compound the mistake.
Wealth is being happy, living in nature, listening ti the birds, breathing clean air, not having chemical pollution throughout everything, not having these horrible problems.
So we need to redefine and re-value our belief systems. We need to understand that money is a belief system.
There is nothing wrong with money, it turns out. The problem is: what is money based on?
If money is based on functional eco systems, then the future will be beautiful. If money continues to be based on the production and consumption of goods and services, we turn everything into a desert!
What is the future for our children, and our children's children and our generations to come in the future?"
