    I support the Manifesto as opening up the need for paradigm change in economic theory: from superficial foundations in mercantilism and invisible hands driven by steam engines, to wider and deeper foundations in human functionality, control theory and communications technology/physiology, thereby opening up the debate to concepts and experience beyond the ken of arithmetical accountants and those paid to advise financiers.

    Add my name. Im aboslutely sickened by the fact that nations bailed out banks only to have them now dictate such savage austerity measures on citizens with complicit governments. We learnt nothing from the great depression. Nothing at all.

    The manifesto deserves attention but prudent adhesion because it is just “near-OK”. Measures 8a and 14 should be combined with in order to put it clear that government – society at last – can´t pay interests for they are “consumers” and not “investors” who use money to create profits. So, ECB might buy (countries´ parliaments budgetary laws stablished Keynesian) deficits-associated bonds with (thus controlled and limited) money issuing. What causes crises is the ever-done central banks money issuing to pay interests over a public debt that never will be paid because governments can´t go into debt. Interests are the real origin of the excess liquidity, not a simple loose monetary policy. Actual problem is not “money issuing” but “money issuing to pay interest to some rentiers”, it is the monetary policy itself, whether loose or tight.

    Im saddened. Why the divide between governments and sound economic policy? Why the closeness between governments and the economics of the financial sector??. What other sector is so cosseted and retains such a closed door personal link to the governments of many in many nations. Substitute the protection of the financial sector with protection to used car dealers and then ask why governments are failing in their economic policies? The answer is the same.
