The gist of the tragedy is that commonly held (important) resources will be depleted and will not be replenished. And this doesn't apply only to how the wilds are being ruined by being held in common but also to national treasuries which everyone in a country believes is there for him or her to dip into indiscriminately. And then, with international communities, the tragedy isn't contained by national borders.
James Turk's article Hyperinflation Looms dated April 20, 2010, is based on Quantity Theory of Money (QTM). It draws an analogy between Weimar Germany of 1923 and the United States of 2010. Both precepts are invalid.

(Yes, they'll rape and loot, but they'll likely stick around just as we've been suggesting this past week.) Seems like the EU dominant social theme is yet too valuable to discard. No surprise to us, or our readers and talented feedbackers – who've been pitching in of late with inordinate, though not surprising, brilliance.

What is really funny here is LA’s Mayor […] Continue reading
