As the first post on this new blog, I thought I would try and set out what I am trying to do.
I have been worrying about debt (personal debt problems and the global debt crisis) for a number of years and wanted to see if there was something that could be done about it. I even tried reading a few economics texts.
As a result I started to think that debt was a bad idea. Whilst I am not opposed to the idea of debt in principle, we just dont seem to be able to handle it. And then it becomes a problem and the problem becomes a crisis.
So can we live without debt?
I have started writing a paper which tries to address the issues that a debt-free society would face. I am not clever enough to have all the answers and some of my answers may not be practical.
So that is why I am starting this blog – can you help by helping me look at the issue and whether we can change the world!
