By JESSICA DESVARIEUX
WASHINGTON, Oct. 9, 2011

House Democratic Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said she supports the growing nationwide Occupy Wall Street movement, which began on the streets of downtown New York City in mid-September.

"I support the message to the establishment, whether it's Wall Street or the political establishment and the rest, that change has to happen," said Pelosi in an exclusive interview with ABC News "This Week" anchor Christiane Amanpour. "We cannot continue in a way this is not relevant to their lives."

food/gold standard in combination for the capital reform of currency?

Hey guys I don't know if you noticed much or at all but, Roseanne Barr is running for PM of Israel and she has an interesting idea, a food standard currency. Honestly, I've played around with the idea in my head a while back and a food standard all ways seemed like it would work well to restructure capital into the hands of every person. but overheat and cause insane inflation as anyone can print money equivalent to the size of their land requiring that there would therefore be no private property rights possible and that long term habitation of a residence also be an impossibility.

This will sink Herman Cain's Campaign.Spread The Word!

Herman Cain has no understanding of economics whatsoever. He said on September 1st in his news letter that we were in an "imaginary recession" and that the economy was great after the housing bubble had already began to burst and we had been in a recession for nine months. After publishing his newsletter with this arrogant nonsense and dogging the Democrats and media for reporting the facts about the recession and housing collapse here's what took place over the following two weeks:

Austrian Economists should educate #OccupyWallStreet

Anybody who understands austrian economics should really go down to wall street and talk to those college kids because they definitely don't learn austrian economics in college.

Those kids represent the frustration of a generation that is going to inherit the mess that the government and banks have put our country in. They are pissed off, they know who they are mad at, and they sort of know why, but I bet most don't have a real clue how it happened.

Permaculture is the practice of Austrian Economics.

LINK:

follow this link to see how the constitution, if interpretted properly, would inhibit the gov't in such a way that austrian economic principles would allow people to practice designing their own economy with cost-efficiency bringing the market to equilibrium instead of debt creation.

There is an inverted way to see the economy just around the corner, with time this movement will wash away the deceptions bankers portray to us and allow us all to plan for ourselves.

Science and Economics Meet at Hayek

From Forbes

ispersed, cooperative knowledge works in economics as it does in evolutionary biology, to accelerate advancement of the human species. Thus two disciplines are joined in Matt Ridley’s book, The Rational Optimist: How Prosperity Evolves, for which he received the Hayek Prize this evening from the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research.
