The last Post from Sept, 26.2010 was about the unchallenged position of Capitalism in the world right now and the efforts to reach a sustainable society. I  want elaborate in this post. In the next post I will try to shine some light on the Individual and Sustainability.

Capitalism was and is constantly in Transition.This is the big advantage of this political and economic system to all other systems.  It is able to meet changing situations  very flexible. Communism, for instance, could not and the rest is history. But now capitalism has reached turning point. The underlying trend of capitalism to produce and sell without limits has obviously come to an end. Too much energy and resources are needed for goods which are not really needed. Again, as long as world population is small, it does not disturb the balance of nature. But with a growing world population the product philosophy must change drastically.

It is not about the eliminating capitalism, but to make it leaner! To make it fit for the future challenges.

The problem is the transition. The transition from one state to another, from present form of capitalism to sustainability must be as soft as possible and not all of a sudden. All of a sudden would mean a radical revolution and might lead to Totalitarianism and not necessarily to a viable and sustainable society.

A society, where less energy demand will mean lower profits but more sustainability and a greater chance of survival.

Capitalism has the advantage to all other systems to be flexible. Transition of steam to diesel to electricity, the computerization, Internet economy. Let us not forget the outsourcing and the magic word Lean Production and Lean Government, which cost a lot of people their jobs.
Now we, at Nesseq demand the Lean Municipality and the Lean Capitalism!

      I’m sorry to disappoint you. I can’t give you money, I don’t have any.

      The Loan Guaranty Fund is a idea how people can organize fundings in their home towns. It is not about giving or loaning money for private people. It is meant to be a way, how to make sustainability viable in your home town.

    Capitalism in Transition ?? here is an example Max :

    Why in the heck do people want to smoke? I’ve never figured that one out. My mom always called it a a cancer stick instead of a cigarette haha. Whenever I see somebody smoking it just makes me sick to think of what they’re doing to their body. Oh well, you can not win them all. That’s my rant for the day ha.
