Chrematistics to Carbon Credits. The new Monetary System, The carbon credit “Gold Standard”

Capitalism & the Illusion of Money – David Korten

“The term capital is one of the major reasons that we seem to be unable to have an intelligent conversation about the economy. Because the term capital; it’s actually the same in business school, in business school you use the terms, resources, assets, and capital. I think those are the ones that come to mind immediately. None of those tell you whether the person using the term is talking about a real resource like land or a building, or technology, or human skills, or any of the things that are absolutely
essential to life into a productive process. Or whether they are simply talking about money which properly
understood is nothing but an accounting chip you think about it there is nothing outside the human mind that can recognize it, it’s totally intangible and the fascinating thing is we organize our economy around the idea that money is the ultimate constraint, Wow!”

Yanis Varoufakis On Ancient Greece And The Nature of Money

“Returning to the links between money and language. I hope you forgive me for a sojourn into etymology
you asked for a Greek to give you a lecture, you’ll suffer now. Where do you go to look at ancient coins? you go to a numismatic Museum. The word numismatic comes from the same etymology as nouse mind nomizo which is a verb that means to think to believe Noumenon which is thought, and the Greek word for a coin is nomisma and that resonates with Aristotle’s idea that money has value if we believe it does. Speaking of Aristotle besides his deep appreciation of the importance of belief and imagination in supporting the value of money he has done something else to contribute to our dystopian post-2008 world. Aristotle’s teleological philosophy, and philosophical position, led him to the conclusion that just like an arrow must have a target in order to be purposeful and meaningful, it is the same with human activity it must have a telos, an end an objective, to be worthwhile to be potentially virtuous so boat building is a virtuous enterprise, why? because it has a telos and an end, and the end, of course, is when you launch the boat and the boat eagerly slices through the waves in search of other Telos’s or teli, of course, the boat builders need money in order to build a boat so money-making, if it remains a means to an end, for Aristotle, is fine but the moment one begins to make money for the purpose of making money once it becomes a means to itself money making is no longer a virtuous activity. When is enough, enough?
Never! If there can be no telos to money making then, the human is condemned to resemble a guinea pig on a treadmill forever going faster and going nowhere.”

Value can not have a quantity it is a perception or notion even a convention.

Convention Lewis.

(10) A medium of exchange–say, coin of the.realm–has its special

status by a convention among tradesmen to take it without question

in return for goods and services. Some conventional media are better

than others: bulky or perishable ones are bad; ones that would retain

some use if the convention collapsed are good–but the inconvenience

of accepting a bad medium of exchange is less than the inconvenience

of refusing it when others take it, or of taking What one can neither

use nor spend. Again, as in (4), there is the complication of legal

sanctions, Refusal to accept legal tender makes a debt legally unenforceable. But again, such sanctions are superflous if they agree with

convention, are outweighed if they go against it, are not decisive either

way, and therefore do not make our regularity any the less conventional.

I suppose we may safely define a medium of exchange as any good


that is conventionally accepted in some population in return for goods

and services. This definition raises an annoying question: is it right

to say that we have a convention to accept our media of exchange

in return for goods and services? It is false to say that our convention

is that we accept our media of exchange in return for goods and

services. For what follows “that” does not state any convention

because it is true, by definition, of any population. On the other hand,

it is true to say of our media of exchange that our convention is that

we accept them in return for goods and services. My question was

ambiguous. It can be read opaquely or transparently.6 It is like the

question whether Hegel knew that the number of planets is greater

than seven. He did not know that the number of planets is greater

than seven. But he did know, of the number of planets–namely

nine–that it is greater than seven

Pricing of Opportunity Cost?

If Value is not a thing then a quantity of a not thing is still not a thing

“a quantity of value, must ITSELF be an abstraction”

“That means that, whilst as purists we might prefer to set out our findings in calories, BTUs and joules, we have to talk in dollars, euros and yen if we’re to secure a hearing. It also means that we need models of the economy based firmly on energy principles.”

“That means that, whilst as purists we might prefer to set out our findings in calories, BTUs and joules, we have to talk in dollars, euros and yen if we’re to secure a hearing. It also means that we need models of the economy based firmly on energy principles.”

This conflates Apples and Oranges particularly when one talks of Borrowing Value from the future.
Debt is a claim on future Wealth but not future wealth. If wealth is Surplus energy then Borrowing can only sensibly be expressed as Borrowing Future Energy Streams. Energy Budget have to be expressed qua Energy budgets a subjective value-based currency unit is simply not up to the job.

The Gulf in understanding and Speaking at crossed purposes inherent in maintaining the Old Financial artifices, and artifices are what they are, will maintain the ignorance of the majority of people. This is I think perfectly acceptable to those of an Elitist worldview and Mindset.

Embodied Energy pricing and circular economy concepts along with DIstributive concepts of political economy and not re-distributive taxation and state-based centralised top-down control mechanisms are what is required. Vested interests are not going to listen anyway Tim, Afterall Turkeys do not vote for Christmas.

Finally, Interest charged on a dead medium is unsupportable by definition, this is the driver of the Growth requirement it’s the debt-based Financial system, and debt and taxation as a political control mechanism of the masses is something which again Elitist world views are more than comfortable with and simply do not wish to let go of.

drtimmorganon  said:

Hang on a minute – debt IS future wealth, if you’re the person to whom it is owed.

If you owned £1m of gilts, and the government then said it was never going to pay up, crashing the price to zero, would you not feel just a bit poorer?

rogerglewison  said:

Tim a Claim on wealth does not necessarily represent Skin in the Game. How people feel about wealth or value is purely subjective. For Objective energy-based economics what is important is actually the Pigou Dalton principle, which is related to Status and taxation/re-distribution tolerance.
At its root, “status” is related to mating prospects, these are visceral matters of instinct, the Subjective issues around monetary value are far less problematical than Social re-ordering through perceived discriminatory re-distribution of relative status within civil society.
Energy is a falsifiable measure the Variability and subjectivity of monetary “Values” are pseudoscientific, thats why the conflation is a contradiction of the claimed first principles of energy Economics, That’s just the way it is.
Under a distributive monetary system based on Energy Credits and not Debt, the redistributive aspects of subjective earned monetary income are less acute and the process of a leveling out as posited by Proudhon in his theory and proposal for a State credit bank as argued with Bastiat is well worth reading both are available on my Blog and Conquest of Dough web site.

drtimmorganon  said:

Status is one of the many issues that I think we need to address as we go further into this. At various times, different metrics have determined status. Levi Strauss and others did interesting work on the status-signalling of foods, for example. At various times, too, ancestral lineage has had more status than wealth.

These various indications of status have applied either in economically-static societies or in those where material prosperity has been growing. We have few (though there are some) examples of status markers in deteriorating economies.

On the original point, though, cancelling debts does mean depriving those to whom the debts were owed. This is why, when debt burdens have become excessive in the past, the usual resort has been to inflation – creditors have been ‘repaid’, albeit in money of lesser or even of minimal worth.

rogerglewison  said:

For the greater part of Human History in sedentary societies, the solution has been Jubilee, not Inflation. Inflations are a fairly modern innovation as is, of course, the secular State and Supra-National Government and Corporate monopoly Capital. Since John Law got his innovations adopted by the French court, there has been a considerable memory holing of the Science of Money ( Del-Mar and Zarlenga require mention).
From the perspectives of Monetary History, the timeline goes back a long-Long way and feudalism and outright Slavery also enters the equation even in the relatively modern era. There is certainly a conversation to be had. Of Course, even the Work of Henry George, well known at the Fin De Cicle is all but forgotten after over Half a century of Hayekian and Chicago School Neo-Liberal monetarism and financialization.
Regarding Usury, I consider Benthams in defence of Usury to be the point at which the Liberal lobby for Usury to have bamboozled the better judgment of more Conservative heads, overturning a couple of Millenia of religious and ethical thought. Bentham’s Treatise is well worth reading it is an un-requited invitation to Dialogue with Adam Smith who opposed usury.

—”Near the window by which I write a great bull is tethered by a ring in his nose. Grazing round and round he has wound his rope about the stake until now he stands a close prisoner, tantalized by rich grass he cannot reach, unable even to toss his head to rid him of the flies that cluster on his shoulders. Now and again he struggles vainly, and then, after pitiful bellowings, relapses into silent misery. This bull, a very type of massive strength, who, because he has not wit enough to see how he might be free, suffers want in sight of plenty, and is helplessly preyed upon by weaker creatures, seems to me no unfit emblem of the
working masses”

Money and Goods Are Different

Thus, clearly, money and goods are not the same thing but are, on the contrary, exactly opposite things. Most confusion in economic thinking arises from failure to recognize this fact. Goods are wealth which you have, while money is a claim on wealth which you do not have. Thus goods are an asset; money is a debt. If goods are wealth; money is not wealth, or negative wealth, or even anti-wealth. They always behave in opposite ways, just as they usually move in opposite directions. If the value of one goes up, the value of the other goes down, and in the same proportion. The value of goods, expressed in money, is called “prices,” while the value of money, expressed in goods, is called “value.”

Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s published diaries Table Talk.
this is from 27th April 1823.
“The national debt has, in fact, made more men rich than have a right to be so, or, rather, any ultimate power, in case of a struggle, of actualizing their riches. It is, in effect, like an ordinary, where three hundred tickets have been distributed, but where there is, in truth, room only for one hundred. So long as you can amuse the company with any thing else, or make them come in successively, all is well, and the whole three hundred fancy themselves sure of a dinner; but if any suspicion of a hoax should arise, and they were all to rush into the room at once, there would be two hundred without a potato for their money; and the table would be occupied by the landholders, who live on the spot.”
“In the economic sense: Any thought that says that Land is Capital.
In whatever shape or form that comes. By rich or poor thinkers, from both the left and right of politics. Any economic investigation using only Labour and Capital as factors in the production and distribution of wealth. Excluding Land as a primary factor”.

a problem in oligopoly is very much meaning and since oligopoly’s rule capitalism
it means that demand tends to depend on supply even if we ignore the
brainwashing of consumers by firms and then there is Piero Sraffa
Sraffa loved to tackle the neoclassicist on their own terms in an article he wrote in 1926
he said let’s take a big industry and consider what happens when producers increase their output and
therefore go up on their short-run supply curve to do so they will need to buy more
variable inputs such as labor and raw materials and because the industry is assumed to
be large the increased demand for those inputs will cause their prices to
increase this increase will redistribute income in favor of the owners of those inputs
and as income gets redistributed the demand curve will shift as suppliers move on the supply
curve so we have one supply curve and movement on the supply curve shift the demand curve so
in the case of a large industry, demand depends on supply and there is no unique equilibrium
by contrast, if the industry is small he said there are no longer fixed
factors of production and the supply curve is flat but that’s a problem because if the supply curve is
flat there is no limit on the size of firms and as firms grow in size
perfect competition gives rise to oligopoly and eventually to monopoly and the neoclassical model then breaks.


This brilliant documentary by Tim Gielen reveals how a small group of super rich criminals have been buying virtually everything on earth, until they own it all. From media, health care, travel, food industry, governments… That allows them to control the whole world. Because of this they are trying to impose the New World Order.

The Control of Oil


John Malcolm Blair

 4.33  ·   Rating details ·  9 ratings  ·  1 review

Everything you always suspected about the oil industry but weren’t certain was true–and Blair has proven it for you in the best book to be written about the oil industry. A documented chronicle of the conniveries of the world’s oil barons–most of whom always have resided and continue to reside in America.

This book is buried buried buried.
This book is a sensational deconstruction of the myths of scarcity and the creation of artificial scarcity to maintain a cartel that spans energy and Exchange.
” in the long run the antitrust approach offers greater protection to the public
interest than any conceivable form of regulation. In mutual dislike
rather than in mutual understanding there is strength. Moreover, by
making an industry’s behavior depend on the judgment and actions of
many buyers and sellers, the competitive approach minimizes the harm
that can be done by any small group of individuals, thereby making
influence and corruption more cumbersome, expensive, and of most
importance, ineffective. “
Would that we had listened and learned from the book published in 1976. (less)
All About control.
from Shimshon Bichler and Jonathan Nitzan
If you thought that oil profits are about producing oil, think again.
The enclosed chart, updated from our 2015 Real-World Economics Review paper, ‘Still About Oil?’, shows that the main determinant of oil profit — and specifically of differential oil profit — is not output, but prices.
The figure shows the correlation between two series: (1) the differential oil profits of the world’s integrated oil companies, computed as the ratio between their earnings per share and the earnings per share of all listed firms; and (2) the relative price of oil one year earlier, measured by the $ price of crude oil relative to the U.S. consumer price index. (The reason for the annual lag is that ‘current’ profits represent a trailing average of earnings recorded over the past 12 months.)

Carbon Currency End Game.

Are Price and Value the same thing and if not which one is worth more, is worth a measure of Price or a measure of Value, or is worth another name for a measure? How circular is this argument in the lexicon of What’s in it for me?



Keep Going Almost there.

If one observes the long game the dominant Narrative of the past 30 years is Climate Change and CO2 emission being the only thing anyone needs to focus upon. The Carbon footprint narrative is by a long chalk well ahead of the curve even with the relatively short but seemingly endless Pandemic and Vaccine Narratives of the Past two years.
Naming names, Larry Fink of Blackstone and Blackstones Going Direct is considerably more powerful a control lever on what happens next than the efforts of Bill Gates and Dr. Fauci to enrich Big Pharma and themselves, Gates also has a bigger card in the game and that is Digital ID and its relationship to both Near earth Satellite networks and the 5G networks, which coincidentally really were rolling out at the Same Time as the Wuhan Event, also in coincidentally Wuhan.
The Vaccines and Vaccine Injury is very much closely related to the Adjuvants and not necessarily the Pathogen dose delivered in the solution of the Adjuvant. It is the Adjuvant rather than the disease which is of interest to the 5G / ID aspects of what the past two years have really been all about.
The Repo Spike in Newyork on September the 19th was the starting pistol, of course, the dress rehearsal was Event 201, The Objective was almost certainly to gain widespread acceptance of Digital IDs on SmartPhone devices and possibly by stealth through Nanotechnology, within the Adjuvant solutions in the mRNA vaccines( Experimental Gene Therapies?).

the underside of the Western tradition

“Western philosophy, after all, really begins with the quarrel between Heraclitus and Parmenides; a quarrel that Parmenides won. As a result, from almost the very start, the Western tradition marked itself by imagining objects that exist, as it were, outside
of time and transformation. So much so that the obvious reality of change has always been something of a problem.” Sunack, Davies v Cameron, Smith v Corbyn

WHY are we here? many choices at the end of the day are actually either or, Science or God, Evolution or Creation/Intelligent design?

Perhaps there is a useful distinction to be made between Science and Technology and between God and mental well- being. If it works don´t fix it and if it feels good or does some apparent good then keep doing it. In this area Rupert Sheldrakes´ notions of habits in nature along with C S Pierces´ Agapism, take me down a path I am always happy to re-visit with either doubt or scepticism depending whether I am blowing in a Materialistic or Idealistic breeze that particular day. Perhaps the best thing to do with mind if we accept such a thing exists is to keep it (mind)open to the possibility for changing once we think we have made it up, or to accept the possibility of contradictions and being in two or multiple minds at once. What are our choices and how do we prioritise or rank them. All of this with the knowledge that we will never have all of the information we would like to overcome our doubt or scepticism. ( Back to Ceteris Paribus? )

There are then notions of received, accepted and popular wisdom, the things we take for granted, the ´Settled Science
´´or ´´Consensus ´´Viewpoint. Beware the thought Police neither the God Squad or the Science Mob have a monopoly on policing thought crime against their Dogmas and they all have plenty of Dogma to go around. Michel Foucault got at this notion of the In Group bias of what Polyani called the Science republic. It applies equally well to any formalised structure of allowed realities I find; secular, scientific, political or religious.

”I would define the episteme retrospectively as the strategic apparatus which permits of separating out from among all the statements which are possible those that will be acceptable within, I won’t say a scientific theory, but a field of scientificity, and which it is possible to say are true or false. The episteme is the ‘apparatus’ which makes possible the separation, not of the true from the false, but of what may from what may not be characterised as scientific.” Michel Foucault.

´´Let those that deny the educational significance of the Bible, that declare it has outlived its usefulness, invent such a book, such stories, such explanations of the phenomena of nature, either from general history or from imagination, which should have such a recap- ion as the Bible ones have, and then we will agree that the Bible is superannuated .

Pedagogy serves as a verification of many, many vital phenomena, of social and abstract questions.Materialism will have the right to proclaim itself as victorious only when the bible of materialism shall have been written, and childhood shall have been educated according to this bible. Owen’s experiment cannot be regarded as a proof of such a possibility, any more than the growth of a lemon tree in a Moscow greenhouse is proof that it could grow without the open sky and the sun.I repeat it, my conviction, drawn perhaps from a one- sided experiment, is that the development of a child and a man is as unthinkable without the Bible as it would have been in Greek society without

Homer. The Bible is the only book for the elementary education of the young. The Bible, both in its form and in its con- tent, ought to serve as the model for all children’s manuals and reading books. A simple popular translation of the Bible would be the most popular of all books. The appearance of such a translation in our day would make an epoch in the history of the Russian people ´´ (YASNAYA POLYANA SCHOOL 253, Tolstoy,

Peak everything.

June 6, 2019


Egregor Matrix
None of the manuals on Economics puts the question of how a state gets wealthy; they focus on the art
of getting rich within a single corporation, a single bank, or give a piece of advice to individual wealth.
Nevertheless, in real life, the corporate effect proves to be achieved at the expense of some damage
done to the state and society.
The country has everything it takes to reach the goals set by the President in his address,
namely, the acceleration of economic growth and the external convertibility of the ruble. The country
possesses quite sufficient sources of energy, a surplus resource potential, a qualified workforce, and
our home demand is stable. However, we have never made proper use of our opportunities on account
of some glaring faults of methodological character. The commodity-and-monetary control needs the
accommodation of interests of both financial and industrial sectors, state interests, and the interests of
the global financial and commodity markets.
The nation’s financial system functionally resembles the haemal system of the human body.

Why Money is such a bad metric for Energy investment decisions? EROI, Towards an Energy-Based Economics. More Notes from the Digital Coalface.

August 28, 2017 at 9:35 am

How so? The worlds money supply has doubled in the 9 years since the 2008 financial crisis, Incomes have not doubled and neither have most peoples savings. The transfer function of wealth through Interest Charges and also priority and first mover advantage with those with first use of newly created debt based bank credit make Money as biased a unit as well as a highly variable unit of measurement you could hope to invent, of course you do not need to invent it because it already exists.
“”Who hasn’t experienced the following? Just the other day
it happened to me! Just like any other weekend, I went
to the supermarket to replenish my empty pantry and as
always, I made the mandatory stop at the fresh produce
section, where I placed some tomatoes in one of those
little plastic bags that you tear from a dispenser. As
always, I went to one of those electronic scales full of
those colourful figures that represent the different
produce: I put the bag on the scale and pushed the key
with the little tomato on it. And oh my God, the
following message appeared on the screen! “Error: This
scale has run out of grams. Please excuse the
inconvenience”. What a pain and just at the worst
moment! But then again, we all know that given the
times, grams are scarce…””

Introduction to Technocracy – 1933
discussions — of ‘value,’ of fluctuating prices, of the gold standard, of changing interest rates, of items of pecuniary wealth which are at the same time items of debt — are
merely discussions looking toward a readjustment of the factors which prevent them
The problem of analysing political choices against the metric of a Monetary measure is the Money as a Thing is most certainly a Variable and as any good technologist, scientist or metrologist will tell you a unit of measurement has to be clearly defined and fixed.
The dollar. He notes that it is a variable. Why anyone should attempt, on this earth, to use a
variable as a measuring rod is so utterly absurd that he dismisses any serious
consideration of its use in his study of what should be done.
He also considers ‘price’ and ‘value’ and the fine- spun theories of philosophers and
economists who have attempted to surround these terms with the semblance of meaning.
These terms, like the monetary unit, may have had meaning to men in the past but they
mean nothing whatsoever to the modern technologist. The standard of measurement is
not relevant to the things measured; and the measuring rod and the things, measured as if
they were stable, are all variables.

This is from 2013 and storage solutions to utilise peak generation of both wind and solar and to provide supply when generation is not possible to have improved since 2013 and will continue to improve. This is another interesting thing about the Time value of money basis of comparison it leads to short term solutions being preferred over long term ones explained by Berard Lietaer here.

In the Courtroom. A usurer demands his deserts.

When shylock petitions the Duke
can he exact a pound of flesh and spill no blood.
The Judge must honour the contract,
how many others does the forfeiture doom?

Neither brassy bosoms, rough hearts of flint
nor stubborn Turks and tartars feel obliged
to temper the harshness of usury or forfeiture, when the price can not be met.
The Quality of mercy is most definitely strained.
It flattens crops like hail.
Truly only the usurer is twice blessed
and the throned monarch is unthroned.
Usury the usurers crown of gold, our crown remains of thorns.

New suitors of title ´Masters of the Universe´.
Not Belmont’s fair Portia sought.
Porches and financial instruments of many more horse power,
torque of Twisted vigour.

No longer metaphors of Gold for gaining mans desire,
Or of Silver and its just deserts.
Always Lead and usurious alchemy,
hearts now made of stone.

failed suit of Morocco,
return and count revenues from the Sookes.
Failed suit of Aragon,
beware robbers from Flanders with heavy dennier stockinged masques.

Seek inside your own Bossanio,
rejecting usury´s gold, hard food of Midas.
Tween Man and man no usury.
Plain lead and recognise moneys deceit.

As Portias counterfeit, redeemed in marriage.
So too should all value tokens declare the
facsimile of exchange they truly be.
Money a true handshake in honour alone.
The courtiers of the Exchequer address the king;

We economists beholden as we are to the princes of usury and as the false prophets of usury.
We fit the horse foot to the shoe that suits us best. It matters not that the horse becomes lame and less furlongs are ploughed. As we deny the poison in our own usurious medium. We also deny that what ills our patient, could be from any panacea concocted in our own alchemists crucible.

Our unit of account, that is to say this store of value.
Not to leave unsaid, this medium of exchange.
Our scarlet pimpernel which no one quite pins down.
We say; ”we give you something , always the same
fungible with each the other. The one whole. Held in safe keeping, returned. What we call these claims or, definitions of claims. These bundles of demands, is money.

Insinuated into civil intercourse,
ubiquitous in the machinery of community,
deployed as a lever and pulley in affairs of state.
A measure of nothing, conjured to divine what’s important.

5 thoughts on “Chrematistics to Carbon Credits. The new Monetary System, The carbon credit “Gold Standard”


    Martin Shubick,

    ”The monetary and financial system of an economy are part of the socio-politico-economic control mechanism used by every state to connect the economy with the polity and society. This neural network provides the administrative means to collect taxes, direct investment, provide public goods, trade. The money measures provide a crude but serviceable basis for the accounting system which in turn, along with the codification of commercial law and financial regulation are the basis for economic evaluation and the measurement of trust and fiduciary responsibility among the economic agents. A central feature of a control mechanism is that it is designed to influence process. Dynamics is its natural domain. Equilibrium is not the prime concern, the ability to control the direction of motion is what counts.

    Money and financial institutions provide the command and control system of a modern society. The study of the mechanism, how they are formed, how they are controlled and manipulated and how their influence is measured in terms of social, political, and economic purpose pose questions, not in pure economics, not even in a narrow political economy, but in the broad compass of a political economy set in the context of society. ”
    Martin Shubik

    What I am trying to get across is even where we base our analysis in terms of the energy conversion potential of the economy, which I believe is a positive Story where there is room for ‘Miserable Optimism’, The Miserable element provoked by the future prospect of confronting Twain’s aphorism, ‘ It is much easier to con a man than to convince him he has been conned after the event’
