Thanks Ruhh,

 

Freecycle is great, recently we have aquired a shed, a wheel barrow, a cold-frame, about 100 plant pots and about 1 ton of manure off Freecycle.

 

Wicked. all I need now is for someone to give away their old garden for free…Laughing

I don’t envy your situation Christopher. But I wouldn’t discount continuing deflation.

My understanding of money says that it only gets real when people are prepared to work for it. Changing the ownership or location of goods is trivial and does almost nothing in reality. Similarly printing money does nothing but fill computers until people work more (in the belief that money will be of value to them). Inflation occurs when more people do with less money to go around and deflation when less people do with more money to go around. Therefore inflation will only come about when people do more or more people do (for money). That does not look likely in even the medium term as people are doing less for money. All the rest of money seems to be a game whose rules can change at the whim of those who believe themselves to be in control; the evidence that this is so is mounting almost daily in our present circumstances.

It is most unfortunate that people are so indocrinated in the culture of money that they will deny their needs and maybe even starve for the sake of that culture. I guess force has some roll to play in their reasoning but still suspect that the culture itself is primary.

I agree that government, while increasing in influence at present, will become increasingly irrelevent to the local situations of people if and when it is forced to rapidly contract. Unfed troops will not remain loyal for long and unfed civil serveants for even less time.  Many possible/ probable circumstances can bring this situation about.
