    Default If there was no money...

    If there was no money, if everything depended on the way you behaved, how you treat people, and your integrity.... How would you be doing?

    How would Rump be doing?

    I'm pretty sure we'd be just fine. Trump would be dead by now of starvation and exposure.

    If there was no money something else similar would take its place, economics isn't the study of money but rather demand, and shortage will always exist

    This is well said. And of course begs the question. If a shortage will always exist why is everyone trying to ignore that?
    Consider the Oyster.

    Maybe if you put it this way, if money was made based on your value to society, how would you be doing?

    That is a question that should be put forth to every politician in this country.

    In rejecting their view [Spinoza, Leibnitz and Hegel], as I shall contend that we must, we are committing ourselves to the opinion that “truth” in empirical material has a meaning different from that which it bears in logic and mathematics.”

    If we get shot of capitalism, why on earth should they? We could make everything we need nowadays in a very short time without this system that collapses whenever there is enough of anything.
