Which new economy are we dealing with?

Technologically new economy? Which? The one born again of microchips around

1985, of motorized agricultura, military, industrial, construction equipment

around 1920, of AC electricity around 1890? Or of commercial gunpowder in

Sweden, of paper money in Mongolia, of flint fire wherever?

Or the one born

again of the U.S. Treasury during the Bush/Reagan reign of illusion, in

complicity with their respective congresses where the treasury took a $5

trillion cash advance (institutionalizing, glorifying living on credit) on the

U.S. future, with principal and interest payments due by generations yet to be

born?

Economic pollution, not unlike other human pollution such as

hypodermic needles washing up on the shoreline, or unlike chemical/nuclear

biological wastes introduced to air, watersheds, oceans and aquifers, stressing

the limits of all resources.
