in which things such as goods, services and information are free, or practically free. This would be due to an abundance of fundamental resources (matter, energy and intelligence), in conjunction with sophisticated automated systems capable of converting raw materials into finished goods, allowing manufacturing to be as easy as duplicating software. Even without postulating new technologies, it is conceivable that already there exists enough energy, raw materials and biological resources to provide a comfortable lifestyle for every person on Earth.

On Simplicity » Simplify Your Life by Bartering for What You Need
One of the goals of simple living is to reduce the time that you spend doing work that you’re not passionate about and to replace it with time spent doing the things that you truly enjoy. One of the key ways to do this that often gets overlooked in the modern world is the option of bartering for the products and services that you need. You can offer products and services that you already have or that you enjoy doing to benefit others who in turn can provide you with the things that you need. You’ll be able to work less because you’ll be spending less money. The barter system was used a long time ago but was then replaced by the ... market research, surveys and trends


The Collectives in Revolutionary Spain
The Spanish Revolution began in the aftermath of a failed fascist coup by General Franco on the 18 July 1936. The coup, which was sponsored by conservative sections of big capital and the Church, failed in most of Spain in the face of armed resistance by workers and peasants, which was organised primarily by the giant revolutionary Anarcho-syndicalist trade union, the National Confederation of Labour (C.N.T.). "Within hours of the Franco assault, anarchist workers and peasants seized direct control over rural land, cities, factories, and social service and transport networks" (Breitbart 1979a: 60; also Geurin 1970: ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Ann's article contains a number of ideas in a version that may appear new to many readers, and which I wanted to address in full rather than with incomplete brevity.

I am addressing my review of what Ann wrote directly to her because I think of her as a very ardent and caring person, and I too am one of those types of people. You are correct, Ann, when you write "money is a tool that can help us facilitate the activities of life...but it isn't a situation of money first, economy/activities ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Arguments Against A Double-Dip Recession: 15 Economic Safety Nets (GOOG, NBG ...
Maybe the markets felt directionless for most of Friday ahead of earnings season, but the trading action of this week might make some wonder if a Double-Dip Recession is less likely.  The economic recovery has faltered and there is still more concern about what lies ahead in late-2010 and 2011.  Still, this week brought about the return of “the risk trade.”  At a minimum, the fears about a double-dip recession seem to be wearing off compared to June.    If you have watched the trading tape of stocks, bonds, and commodities, the outright panic trade bracing for a second market meltdown seems to be less prevalent than ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
EU cuts GSP+ concessions for Sri Lanka
The European Union (EU) on Monday announced that Sri Lanka would temporarily lose its General Services Preferential (GSP) + tariff concessions, mainly to the apparel sector, from August 15 following the decision of the island nation to reject a conditional offer by the Union. The EU had set July 1 as the deadline for Sri Lanka to accept 15 specific conditions to be fulfilled within a time-frame of six months.
