Geoff and Paul thanks for bringing this conversation to us! I can just imaging youngsters getting into permaculture in America through the podcast door. Pretty awesome and needed stuff.

Geoff mentioned high finance as a niche market which is exactly the direction of my permaculture works. Funding and subsidies have grown military, tech and energy markets for a long time and we see the results. Funding on large scale, multi-million dollar scales for peace, regenerative works and lets say, carbon farming, or whole-systems design implimentation has not been afforded that level of investment.

The time is now and one "super rich" dude or dudette could fund good works for a really long time. Following the 3rd ethic allows the money cycling within the system. The money that enters a permaculture system never has to come back out of that system.

I wonder what you all think on this topic.
