Bio
I'm an electrical engineer and mathematician by training. My career has spanned diverse areas of expertise from being part of a team which designed the world's most powerful computers to corporate consulting around business transformation and information-based solutions to being a corporate sales and marketing executive in the information technology and business consulting space. I’ve led teams responsible for innovative and transformative solutions and been part of teams that helped set strategy for many of America's greatest companies. Two of my interests are econometrics, democratic finance and quantitative - qualitative analysis. Over the years I have developed risk-based models and trading systems meant to identify significant investment opportunities and periods of extreme risk. My blog is an outlet for another of my passions, writing. I generally consider myself a contrarian. Therefore, many of my rantings are meant to encourage people to question what they believe to be true. Terms of Use & Disclaimer: First off, I don't take anything on here too seriously and you shouldn't either. These are simply sardonic rantings of Bill, my alter ego, often meant to agitate for peaceful & nonviolent reform. This web site reflects the views of its authors.

That is fascinating. Will this be the first Constitution with clauses in it specifically dedicated to the minimization and mitigation of corporate and financial power in government institutions?

That's fascinating.

The US Constitution was geared toward minimizing the power of the Federal Government by dividing it against itself, through the concept of "division of power," with the executive, judicial and legislative branches divided and constantly at war with eachother.

This makes legislation and centralization of power difficult. But it has been done, through King Cotton in the 19th Century and through Big Business and Big Finance in the Modern Age.

Money can circumvent 18th century constitutional mechanisms.

I'd like to read more about how Iceland does this.

They can be a model for all the world to follow.
That article is by the BNP, though. Aren't they super radical right?
We might want to get beyond this false left/right paradigm to right/wrong paradigm. There are nuggets of truth and lies throughout the spectrum of political lunacy. ie, Who cares where truth came from? Does a far left leaning person have a lock on reason and truth? I would suppose there are many more truths in a conservative view of power than one that believes unchecked power of the benevolent state will always reveal itself. If you look at their platform, esp economics, you might find that there is substantial commonality in what you believe to be true.

hmm.. why won't this post. Here you go.
All valid arguments. I do not ignore truth, based on the affiliations of the messenger.
