Patrick Noble provides a glimpse of how the future economy could look along with some unusual ideas about how we might get there. Might the transition to a community-focused, renewable-energy-based economy be "less the great revolt and more the return of ordinary lives"?
Notes from Nowhere
We live in a uniquely perverse time – and solutions to its uniquely- perverse problems will not be found in extra-ordinary solutions such as austerity. Remedies may be found in simply returning to normal. Moreover, living by ordinary ethics within ordinary laws of physics may reclaim the happiness that comes from living within ordinary human nature.
