Er sagt: “Die Lösung der Blockierung ist die Lösung. Behutsam, nicht gewaltsam” … ” und: “Das, was als Wissenschaft erscheint, ist von Grund auf ein Glaubenssystem. Die Neoklassik ist ein Glaubenssystem im Gewand von Wissenschaft und sie hat sich mittlerweile den Rahmen einer neuen Weltreligion erarbeitet” … und: “Es ist verständlich: Wenn man sich erstmal auf den Baum der Wissenschaft hochgearbeitet hat, erst im Studium, dann macht man das Diplom und die Doktorprüfung, die Habilitation und man kriegt tatsälich eine Prof-Stelle … und: “Man versucht sich einen guten Ruf zu erwerben, national und auch international” … und: “Dann sitzt man da oben und plötzlich kommt so’ne Flegel an, rüttelt unten am Stamm und zeigen einfach nur auf: Guck mal, der Stamm, die Wurzel ist doch völlig morsch und faul! Ja, die Wenigsten werden mit Begeisterung darauf reagieren und sagen: Nagut, dann komm ich mal von da oben wieder runter. Die meisten werden die Leute, die sie da oben neben sich haben, nehmen, und denen da unten über Kopf hauen. Das ist ganz grob bildlich angedeutet die Struktur des Wissenschaftsbetriebs im Bereich der Wirtschaftswissenschaften” … (Systemfehler.de).

Er sagt auch: Angenommen zu Beginn unserer Zeitrechnung wäre ein Pfennig mit fünf Prozent Zinsen angelegt worden und hätte, unberührt von Inflationen, Steuern oder Währungsreformen, ungehindert wachsen können – sein Wert hätte 1990 bereits 134 Milliarden Goldkugeln vom Gewicht der Erde entsprochen, allein durch Zins und Zinseszins. Es sind die Zinsen, die unsere Wirtschaft zu fortwährendem Wachstum – und damit zwangsläufig immer wieder in den Zusammenbruch – treiben, sagt Bernd Senf, Professor für Volkswirtschaft an der Berliner Wirtschafts-Fachhochschule im Interview mit P.M.

Currency substitute: Script – This article is about the currency substitute. Scrip is any substitute for currency which is not legal tender and is often a form of credit. Scrips were created as company payment of employees and also as a means of payment in times where regular money is unavailable, such as remote coal towns or occupied countries in war time. Other forms of scrip include subway tokens, arcade tokens and tickets, and “points” on some websites. Scrips have gained historical importance and become a subject of study in numismatics and exonumia due to their wide variety and recurring use. History: … (full text).

Wilhelm Reich (March 24, 1897 – November 3, 1957) was an Austrian-American psychiatrist and psychoanalyst. Reich was a respected analyst for much of his life, focusing on character structure, rather than on individual neurotic symptoms. He promoted adolescent sexuality, the availability of contraceptives and abortion, and the importance for women of economic independence. Synthesizing material from psychoanalysis, cultural anthropology, economics, sociology, and ethics, his work influenced writers such as Alexander Lowen, Fritz Perls, Paul Goodman, Saul Bellow, Norman Mailer, A. S. Neill, and William Burroughs. He was also a controversial figure, who came to be viewed by the psychoanalytic establishment as having gone astray or as having succumbed to mental illness. His work on the link between human sexuality and neuroses emphasized “orgastic potency” as the foremost criterion for psycho-physical health. He said he had discovered a form of energy, which he called “orgone,” that permeated the atmosphere and all living matter, and he built “orgone accumulators,” which his patients sat inside to harness the energy for its reputed health benefits. It was this work, in particular, that cemented the rift between Reich and the psychoanalytic establishment … (full long text), also Wilhelm Reich’s work about Orgone on wikipedia.

Wilhelm Reich said: “Love, work and knowledge are the well-springs of our life, They should also govern it”.

Silvio Gesell (born March 17, 1862 in Sankt Vith (now Belgium); died March 11, 1930 in Oranienburg) was a German merchant, theoretical economist, social activist, anarchist and founder of Freiwirtschaft (german for free economy) … (full text); … His Life; … his money reform; / seine Geldreform; …

… He spent the first 25 years of his life in Europe, studying liberal arts and languages. After a short and uninspiring spell as a government civil servant, he went to live in Brazil, where he resided for over 20 years. He made his living as an importer of surgical instruments. He was a reasonably successful businessman, but, like all his associates, labored under the great disadvantage – an unsound economy. Inflation, unemployment, bankruptcies, recessions, and governmental instability led him to the study of economics. Thus out of self preservation this transplanted European merchant began the study which was to change his life. He came to the conclusion that in order to bring about the kind of stability, equity, and freedom so necessary to harmonious economic development, there needed to be a thorough reform of the world’s land tenure system, money arrangements, tax laws, and accountancy procedures … (full text).
