I can't help but reflect: when I started posting the adventures of Max, the economy was in a better state than it is now. In PORENA they told Max money became so complicated they abandoned it instead of trying to fix it.

In the light of the last few weeks' events I feel this is looking MORE AND MORE sensible. Let's face it. We have a money system no-one can understand or control that is at odds with the planet. Let's stop pretending it can be fixed and look to alternatives.

A greener, slower, friendlier, kinder society is what we should work towards. Let's base it on humanitarian grounds. This greed is good stuff has proved itself dysfunctional.

If you haven't caught all chapters yet scroll done the list by following this link.
