Glad to see that you too are following these threads Jock.
We are I think struggling with not only the theory of money, but the
practicalities of how we operate when :-) we get a sensible system.
If it goes out as new money, and we want it to circulate and not
accumulate, we must bring it back in again at some time.
Yes I know there are some here that go ballistic at the very mention of
the hated word "Tax", but how else will anything like a sufficiency be
And as for those who hate the idea of Government being involved in
anything, how do the majority make their needs constitute a market ?
Combination in some form or other, don't you think ?

John, forgive me for butting in here. I agree. But also, partly why
there is such a high demand for public spending is that people do not
get to keep enough of what they can make to be able to afford to do
for themselves what they then expect government to provide.
I reckon you could probably slash government spending in half at
least in a more equitable fiscal environment.
This is why I like SoCred to get the money out there and LVT to get
some of it back as land rents reflect so well the public sector
inputs into them, so you would be recycling public sector capital
expenditure and giving people more of their own money back to let
them choose what revenue expenditure they wanted to support/use.
