"Conventional wisdom says there is only one way to earn a living, and that's to work. Conventional wisdom effectively treats capital (land, structures, machines, and the like) as though it were a kind of holy water that, sprinkled on or about labor, makes it more productive. Thus, if you have a thousand people working in a factory and you increase the design and power of the machinery so that one hundred men can now do what a thousand did before, conventional wisdom says,…Continue

Though the conspicuous absence of such Constitutional specification of individual economic rights is glaring – especially within the context of an ostensibly “free market” economic environment and theoretical orthodoxy which formally asserts that maximizing systemic efficiency actually hinges on minimizing or eliminating competitive barriers to entry to achieve universal participation - in more recent times, inklings have…Continue

ACTIVIST ALERT: SINS OF OMISSION

We are living through a political crisis of the Transfer State: the United States has reached social and political limits beyond which it has become very difficult to squeeze the wage earnings of the working population for the benefit of those who do not earn wages. The signs and symptoms of this crisis are essentially everywhere: in the drive to cut the federal budget, in welfare reform, in the continuing debate over health care, in recurring drives to…Continue

"Such access to the ownership of capital cannot be brought about by taking from some who have too much and giving to others who have too little or none, for this would be an attempt to maintain the integrity of private property in capital by means which would destroy it. But it would seem worth considering whether a system of financing new capital formation can be devised which would simultaneously promote the growth of new capital formation and increase the number of households owning…Continue

What Can We Do ... NOW
There are two factors driving this post. First is an overwhelming need for CESJ to get above the noise, the sturm and drang of political rhetoric and become a serious issue before the polis! There is no escaping the crushing logic of Binary Economics, or Capital Homesteading, The ESOP and the whole failed theory of Keynsian Economics. Why then are we unable to move our message forward. The undaunted courage and tenacity of Dr.…Continue
I am a member of the Coalition for Capital Homesteading (a proposal consistent with binary economics), and I have found very little substantive argument against the plan. I was pleased to find a critical article in a Mises Institute newsletter archive, and I have prepared responses here to the points it contains. The article can be found at:…Continue

Production worker cooperatives need to be formed, based on the Mondragon Cooperative Corporation model. My interest is in raising capital for production worker cooperatives in the context of a non-casino stock exchange. See: Small Business Investment Exchange: http://sbic.wetpaint.com
