by Richard Douthwaite, from Fleeing Vesuvius. This plan for bringing Ireland out of its current financial crisis brings together many of the ideas described in the book. It suggests two ways of introducing debt-free money into the economy. It then explains how the financial system could be restructured by means of new banking regulation and the use of equity partnerships, and finally it advocates a move towards energy independence in Ireland.
by Lothar Luken. Just had a crash, wrote off two cars. Now where's my medal for stimulating the economy? Two replacement cars have been bought; one driver seen by a doctor; an assessor coming to inspect the wreckage; state keeps motor tax for the old cars; insurance (UK-based!) pays scrapper for wreck crushing. Nice stimulus package - according to official theory.
