At Supermarkt Berlin Prof. Dick Bryan (Chief Economist, ECSA) and Akseli Virtanen (Co-Founder ECSA) discuss causes of central bank fragility and fungible approaches towards capitalist protocols. ECSA’s upcoming White Paper took on the remit of a much needed new economic grammar that intensifies liquidity and relationality in peer-to-peer stakeholding.
This article discusses a crucial tool that we work with: the notion of a grammar pervading the protocols of Economy.
As all our efforts go into the creation of a language for new forms of economic expression, it should be noted that although ECSA’s grammar is capable of expressing capitalist network protocols, it effectively surpasses them. It can encompass capitalist value calculus, but express more qualified values. The grammar we propose refuse their collapse into the monological value-expression that disqualifies non-money values as economic externalities.
Akseli and Dick discussing premises of the upcoming ECSA economic white paper: Economy as a network. Capitalism as a narrow definition of a network. Hayek and his digital disciples. Price, market and the rule of profit as a protocol. How to challenge a capitalist protocol? At the core of the ECSA project: The creation of a post-capitalist economic grammar.
What is the ECSA vision? Why is capitalism under stress right now? Why are the central banks looking so fragile? Is it possible to get out of capitalism and its detrimental protocols, which are not so safe as it claims? Can capitalism short itself?
