[quote:Anonymous Coward 3131543:MV85ODA3ODlfMzE5MzU3NDJfOEFCMDVBMDk=] The Kondratieff cycle (we are headed into winter) may be partly natural (I deny that); Money is not part of the natural world. Money is a special extension of language - a communication. A method of communicating the distribution and ownership of the commodities and finished products that people produce each day. A method of rationalizing human effort. Gold is not beans, but beans may be eaten. Silver is not lumber but homes may be built with lumber. The various communications of the monetary variety must necessarily be truthful. The predictability factor depends on truth in monetary symbolism. Well meaning and truthful people (truthful meaning they themselves believe their utterances) make mistakes in economic conclusions because they have departed entirely too far from recognizing that money is a symbolic and imaginary way of representing the natural world. Gesell wrote and spoke some things back in the period of 1900 to 1920 that still remain to be integrated into economic thought and writing. These expositions were about the natural world and nature's laws that automatically become more important than man's representations. Mises, in his 1200 page book HUMAN ACTION called Gesell a crank. One sentence. If Mises had any honesty he would have devoted at the very least a full chapter to Gesell. Mises was there; check the history - I did. Gesell told some truth; Mises continued the lies in money. [/quote]

if we don't, it will be like a stagnant parasite within us all.
