Addenda


This addenda section contains a collection of presentations that either need editing or contain more detail than the main pages can contain.

Introduction

Many of the explanations on this website have a great more detail than many readers wish to engage. Although I encourage visitors to dig deeply into the subject matter on this site, I have separated these presentations from the overviews that I offer from the main menu.

In addition, I have placed a number of pages in this section until I can complete a complete edit.

This presentation delves into the details of the frequently misunderstood process by which the banking system creates new money.

Money Matters Presentation

A free market economic system would not work without the use of money, yet very many people do not understand the role of money. This presentation discusses the importance of money in significant detail.

Economic Systems Model

Detailed modeling of any economic system remains virtually impossible because they high degree of complexity and the self-correcting nature of the system. If one keeps the model extremely simple and controls important variable, he can use a model to demonstrate important principles.

Market Pricing Model

This presentation will show the details of developing a model of market pricing. Then it will demonstrate the relationship between direct exchange prices and money prices.

The following pages need editing.

    In addition to economic value, philosophical values play an important role in the operation of an economic system. When I have completed a description of philosophical value, I will post it in the Reasoning section.
