Most of this week has been concerned with preparations for next week’s trip to Cleveland and the annual Rally at the Federal Reserve on April 26, 2013. The weather has been warming up a trifle, as has the Rhetoric Against Everything. This, of course, is only to be expected as people become increasingly concerned about the deteriorating global situation.
What can you do about it? Plenty. For one thing, spread the word about the Rally. For another, spread the word about binary economics and the potential for rapid yet sustainable rates of growth inherent in financing with future savings instead of past savings.
Finally, show up at the Rally:
• Don’t forget to clear your calendar for Friday, April 26, 2013 and the annual rally at the Federal Reserve in Washington, DC to demonstrate for democratic access to capital credit for a “Capital HomesteadAct” so ordinary people can become capital owners without redistributing the wealth belonging to the rich or increasing government debt, and the money supply can be backed with private sector assets instead of government debt. We don’t have all the details yet, but it looks as if there is going to be some entertainment and a number of interesting speakers.
• Members of the CESJ Core Group have made great advances developing an individual business model that can be implemented within existing law. Employing the S-Corp ESOP, the model has the potential, at least according to studies collected by the National Center for Employee Ownership in Oakland, California, to be 1.5 times as productive as otherwise comparable companies — and that’s on top of the tax savings.
• CESJ met briefly with an historian working on a biography of Father Andrew F. Morlion, O.P., one of CESJ’s co-founders. Father Morlion was an important figure in Vatican politics until shortly before his death in 1987.
• As of this morning, we have had visitors from 58 different countries and 50 states and provinces in the United States and Canada to this blog over the past two months. Most visitors are from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Saudi Arabia, and India. People in Singapore, Portugal, Qatar, Indonesia, and Nigeria spent the most average time on the blog. The most popular postings this past week were “Thomas Hobbes on Private Property,” “Some Thoughts on Money, II: The Different Schools of Thought,” “Aristotle on Private Property,” Social Justice IV: The Characteristics of Social Justice,” and “State Sovereignty . . . or Sovereignty of the People.”
Those are the happenings for this week, at least that we know about.
