Economics Overview

Eco-nom-ics:
the social science that studies the production,
distribution and consumption of goods and services.

PART 1
MONETARY ECONOMICS
Economics Overview

Monetary Economics:
the use of currency as a means for facilitating
the production, distribution and consumption of
goods and services.

Fundamentally based on selling one’s labor


as a commodity in the open market.

Mechanism 1:
The Need For 'Cyclical Consumption'

PART 1

MONETARY ECONOMICS (1) cyclical consumption
Mechanisms and Consequences

1) Nothing physically produced can ever maintain


a lifespan longer than what can be endured in
order to maintain the needed ‘cyclical consumption’.

Planned Obsolescence
: the deliberate withholding of efficiency
so the product in question breaks
down respectively fast.

It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable,
surely the most vicious. It is the only one
international in scope. It is the only one in which
the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses
in lives.”

”We are being afflicted with a new disease of which some


readers may not yet have heard the name, but of which they
will hear a great deal in the years to come – namely
‘technological unemployment’. This means unemployment due
to our discovery of means of economizing the use of labor,
outrunning the pace at which we can find new uses for labor.”

refute it. Those who picture machines as active enemies

In Conclusion

”the old appeals to racial, sexual and religious chauvinism, to rabid


nationalist fervor, are beginning not to work. a new consciousness is
developing which sees the earth as a single organism, and recognizes
that an organism at war with itself, is doomed.
We are one planet.”

-Carl Sagan
