Via Michel Bauwens’ FB profile I heard that Bernard Lietaer has died today. The former Belgian central banker, Euro-architect, hedge fund manager, and very active alternate currencies champion. I have learned a lot from his writings. I’m taking his passing as a trigger to (re)read his books. His arguments on how to create abundance and sustainable growth strike me as more convincing than the singularity style techno-optimists’. He was a very approachable man, and patiently entertaining my layman’s questions to him when I mailed him years ago.
