Economic Proverbs for a sustainable future

  • Only lend money if you have it to lend.
  • Only create new money once it is backed by an asset
  • Reward people for consuming less
  • Require Rewards to be invested to create new resources
  • Measure economic success by the productive assets we possess
These proverbs contrast with the way the world’s economic system is currently organised
  • Lend money you do not have
  • Create new money on a promise that you will get back more than you create
  • Only give resources to those who have resources
  • Reward the profligate by how much they consume
  • Measure economic success by how much is consumed
