One thought on “Financial Permaculture: 8 forms of Capital

  1. Errghh, yes, but now to the real world.

    I am sorry to say that this proposal is already kind of being implemented.

    But the end-point will not be what is intended.

    Financialization of the climate, via carbon trading, continues to expand, despite flawed markets and project failures.

    Ecosystem services are being financialized via carbon trading, forests are now “carbon sequestration products” that are already like home loans, by the same people and financial corporations, in FINANCE CAPITAL, becoming the foundation for new complex derivatives.

    Much of this is being controlled by the same financial capitalists that brought us the current financial and economic crisis.

    Its happening in shadow banking, offshore and in computerized trades between banks and other corporations.

    Spritiuality, culture etc are financialized too, its called Hollywood, organized religion.

    I am sorry to be so harsh, but this financial permaculture current of thought is so far removed from reality its a misleading and dangerous joke.

    Too many people are looking for real answers its very misleading and irresponsible to promote such nonsense.

    At least Mollison had the good sense to promote financial schemes based on real, working examples, no matter how quixotic.

    This is just Natural Capital expanded.
