The queen of England asked, "Why did economists not see this coming?" Very many did, but they are not part of the "accepted" economic/political scene. Only now are they beginning to be heard, and powerfully so. Mary Mellor looks at alternative economic/political options.
And I'll look at this one too, Joan, time permitting of course. My class ends in June, after that I was hoping I might get a chance to start studying some economics on my own, get to the root of this thing. So far, all signs point to ominous! Being in the dark does nothing to allay my fears.
Jedi, I have been watching videos from economic and political conferences and have found some really interesting individuals who make a lot of sense to me. Some just make more of the jargon talk and aren't worth the time or attention. When you have time to start watching and if you want a few names to get started, let me know and with 3 or 4 people you can get a good start. I wouldn't think you have time for all of them. I am retired and have nothing else to fill my time.
