On Usury

In the previous posting on this subject, we noted that it seems to be a part of human nature that people like to be useful and engage in productive activity.  The Great Reset and similar proposals, however, appear to be far more concerned with meeting people’s material needs by any means necessary, with no attention paid to whether or people become productive and useful.

On Utility

As we saw in the previous posting on this subject, it is not enough, even in materialist terms, just to see that people have enough to ensure their material wellbeing.  Human beings also want to be useful and productive.

JTW Podcast: Louis Kelso on the Harold Channer Show

Last week we featured an interview of Dr. Robert H.A. Ashford of the University of Syracuse School of Law on binary economics.  This week we have something even better: another interview from the Harold Channer Show, but this one is with the “Father of Binary Economics,” Louis O. Kelso:

News from the Network, Vol. 14, No. 14

Most of the world seems to be spinning its wheels trying to figure out how to turn the old abnormal into the new normal, when the pandemic has revealed the cracks in the system that prevent the new normal from being any better than the old abnormal. . . .

Property, Power and Production

In the previous posting on this subject, we looked briefly at the “Great Reset” and similar proposals and contrasted them with the demands of human dignity.  The basic idea seems to be that everyone should have “enough,” and that the system should be reorganized to provide it.  As far as many people today are concerned, the main problem is how to get what people need directly into the hands of the people who need it.

The Demands of Human Dignity

All things, as Aristotle said in the beginning of the Nichomachean Ethics, seek the good.  If someone seeks evil, it is because he either has the wrong idea of what is good, or is trying to avoid a greater evil.  The former is called a badly formed conscience and must be corrected through education and example.

Financing Future Growth

We closed the previous posting on this subject by noting that while expanded capital ownership can restore Say’s Law of Markets and poke Keynesian economics and its unresolved paradoxes in the eye with a sharp stick, there was a problem.  It is itself a seeming paradox — or at least ironic — that the people who most need to become capital owners are the least likely to be able to afford it.

JTW Podcast: Robert Ashford on Binary Economics

This week we have a talk on binary economics straight from the expert’s mouth.  Dr. Ashford is not only a professor of law at Syracuse University, he is the author (with Rodney Shakespeare) of Binary Economics: the New Paradigm:

News from the Network, Vol. 14, No. 13

What may be a quantum leap in implementing a demonstration in the Just Third Way of Economic Personalism has occurred in Missouri, and can pave the way to break out of the inherently unjust and financially irresponsible Keynesian wage and welfare system.  In contrast, the guaranteed income proposals being implemented as pilot programs across the country, such as the one in Oakland, California (below) ultimately end up being ways to try and make a failed system work:

The Principle of Binary Growth

As we saw in the previous posting on this subject, the basis of a just economy is for production and consumption to be in balance.  This necessarily implies that every consumer must be a producer, and that every producer must be a consumer.  Further, every consumer should produce what he or she consumes, and every producer should consume what he or she produces.
