Leaving the Planet by Space Elevator
by Linda Phillips
It is an astonishing thing that, in this age of technological progress, a new idea can appear, seemingly out of nowhere. Yet the invention of the Space Elevator has had just such an impact. In the past decade it moved from science fiction to an engineering project.
With a Foreword by the late Sir Arthur C. Clarke, you will be amazed by this project.

Eurekanomics - The No Tax Economics
on Oct. 04, 2010
Nice idea but no hope of ever being implemented, the system would be too easy to rort. Its like trying to give us communism that looks like capitalism, or vice versa. But the author does highlight the reason our capitalist economies are failing today: when the gap between rich and poor gets too large, the system breaks down. Since the rich are in charge of government, nothing short of a revolution seems likely to rescue our current civilization.
