Steve grew up in a family business, was a history major in college, and has owned a small business for 25 years. Practical experience (mistakes) have led him to recognize that political rhetoric and educated analysis often falls short of reality. TAX Your Imagination! is the name of his first book, which he hopes will be a series. Two hundred years ago, it might have been called Commonsense. Thomas Paine, Henry Thoreau and Edward Bellamy (author of Looking Backward) would have been his best friends, if given the opportunity. He is a deep thinker with a light heart and a quirky sense of humor. If you want to categorize him, he is a neo-transcendentalist. Balance and simplify!

People think the economic choices are between modern ideas of capitalism and socialism, but what we actually live is an adaptation from feudalistic system, with corporations as the nobles.
This chapter explains the role of interest and land bondage upon which all of society is based, the oddity of Wall Street, and offers a new economic formula (C=M+L) to replace Marx's surplus value and M-C-M' claims. Series: Alternative Economics 101: Tax Your Imagination! (16 Articles, 16271 views)
SHARE Saturday, November 16, 2013 14. What is Modern Finance?
This chapter deals with the rise of paper money and stocks and their role in the destruction of feudalism. Modern finance is not very old, and has not solved any of the problems it was expected to solve. In trying to understand the issues of today, it is good to understand the history of how they arrived. We are, unfortunately, repeating ourselves while expecting different results. Series: Alternative Economics 101: Tax Your Imagination! (16 Articles, 16271 views)
