+Rebecka Eggers (and others), it looks like it's still available here: http://www.thenewconsumer.com/2011/08/09/building-a-21st-century-financial-system/ (and of course the book, The New Capitalist Manifesto, is available--including as an eBook--via the usual suspects.) It's message remains as current as it was three years ago.

SideBar - I just blogged one of your posts here.
Because I am a stubborn old meditator I did not get swept on to the next item in the BluePill stream.

I wonder: might you be interested in exploring "Think of institutions as software for human accomplishment"?
I'm just an old bummer now, but in my youth I was in an exquisitely uncommon military trade ... in Canada we say "CommResearch" because we strive to under-state. But that's where I was when, as he described it in advance to Richard Nixon, Kissinger "made the Chilean economy groan in agony".

Anyhow ... from Heidegger's techne through Bucky's tensegrity to Habermas' discourse ethics ... nothing stretched out of shape so far.
I'm only a grunt. A sniper, airborne-trained. A busker. Theatre TD, engineer for musicians, lights and sounds for events ... no sort of performer. /*G*/

I only strive to enable ... empower ... while talking about "participatory deliberation" and "discourse-based decision support". In a relaxed moment I wax about transforming "the pen" into a sniper rifle with laser sights. (The better too slay psychopaths, nae? Wooden stakes are terribly out dated!)

Oh my ... it's Saturday ... Andean folk music on the radio ... I've gotten carried away.
HeyHo, so it goes.

Oh-- and I don't think the fact you're being ignored has anything to do with you personally, Umair-- I think it's simply that your point of view is entirely unconventional and challenges everything people accept as truth. You're proposing a huge change, and change scares the crap out of people.

I just hope the change comes in spite of any fear, uncertainty, doubt, and the resistance that comes with it...

+Umair Haque I'm curious if you're familiar with Chris Martenson, if not I think this talk of his is a great introduction: http://www.vimeo.com/17929740. Thoughts?
