Parallel Economies

O ur present hegemonic economic model imposes a single superstructure on the entire economy, in the case of today's global economy, this is the capitalist system.

This hegemony imposes a cybernetic economic model, the capitalist model, on the entire population of a nation, or even of the World. And, while this single-domain model has been shown to create wealth and to optimize the production of goods and services, it is simply not suited to the conditions in the developing world, where poverty and marginalization are so extreme that by imposing such a model, we are condemning the vast majority of the population to poverty.
