Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Actually, we probably have the basis for a pretty credible critique of the origin, failures and consequences of the present system and of why it remains the dominant view of the economy in diaries and comment threads on ET. Perhaps we should start a link library organized by topics:

  1. How we got where we are.

  2. Why what we are trying to do cannot work.

  3. Why we keep trying doomed policies.

  4. What would work.

  5. Why we won't do what would work.

  6. What you can do to help.

If I had such a list available, other than my own meager efforts, I would be happy to start writing summaries that I could post and we could take apart. We have finite available energy, so a full-on encyclopedia must be a future goal. What we need is a compelling critique of the existing situation and a clear alternative that, at a minimum, most college educated adults could understand, were they to accept that they have been systematically mis-educated and/or misinformed about the nature of the economy and the relation between the economy and our political systems.

The time is now.
