So long John Behrman. I read all your words.
Thanks. You think fast and offer our minds a
chance to swim to the four points of the compass.
Behrman's summary ignored ideas on maldistribution
of our technological inheritance. I assume he did this
because it is a very broad topic that may be kept outside
an appraisal of Microsoft -- if we never had another
But many of us assume recessions will come and
go and MS and its large and small rivals ought
not to back away from a solution to maldistribution
of our inheritance.
In my view this is a general problem; yet
digital engineers are in a position to think about
new and old types of financing that can keep pace
with our inheritance and cure the stifling effect of
too little money to carry on our work.

The Web addresses above argue for economic rights and
wealth creation, and for individual and national security,
to be financed by credit and protected against inflation by
full automation and saving -- not by high interest, high
unemployment and high taxes.
