I would call it a natural for this game though. You can always go bankrupt and write your whole business of, as long as you made sure to divest some of those profits for your personal, later, use. And that one comes down to what laws and regulations exist, created through our game, protecting it.
With those somewhat incredible price hikes we've seen recently, food etc, not only coming from greed and 'supply and demand'. It can just as easily be seen as a trend that we will see more of as businesses, and the people behind them, bolster economic defenses for what they expect to come.
It would still be fun with a study defining where all that money lands, in this 'supply chain' ending with the consumer.
" The IRA is the product of a devil’s bargain struck between (among others) Democrats and Joe Manchin, speaking on behalf of his corporate donors. In exchange for his agreeing to vote for some $370bn worth of genuinely exciting climate spending, the West Virginia senator has demanded sweeping permitting reform and an all-of-government greenlight for the Mountain Valley Pipeline.
Many of the worst provisions are slated to be passed in future legislation this September. The IRA itself contains a remarkable poison pill, requiring that 60m acres of public waters be offered up for sale each and every year to the oil and gas industry before the federal government could approve any new offshore wind development for a decade."
" In London, 250,000 marched against the bomb in London in 1981. In the US, the nuclear disarmament rally of 1982 brought a million people to New York’s Central Park. In Australia, the annual Palm Sunday peace rallies mobilised perhaps 300,000 people in 1984 and 350,000 the following year.
Those huge marches – and the mass membership of groups like the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament – acted as a constraint on politicians, and so ensured that the grim scenario in Briggs’s book remained entirely fictional. By contrast, today Peter Dutton can tell us to “prepare for war” and Nancy Pelosi add to tensions by visiting Taiwan, safe in the knowledge that the antiwar movement has never been weaker. "
No, and yes Collin. GDP is more or less a joke today. But also a religious dogma by our game. And I totally agree to us not going to 'populate' any other planet than earth, in the foreseeable future. And 'single solutions' doesn't exist. We need a lot of partial solutions to make it through. The ban I want is forcing of a change to this game. Because it will change it, just as I think that this 'fractal democracy' should be able to. It's no 'final solutions' in any way, but it is what I expect us to need to do first, and it need to come from our industrialized world to be seen as honest.
