interesting times

Broker turned monk offers home truths to needy

Mishkov says the crash should also help correct a dangerous global trend of an excessive outflow of labor to the service sectors, by people attracted by high pay and an easy life. "Milk is not produced by computers, bread doesn't come from a good company PR. It is necessary to plow, sow and harvest before that," says the monk.

  • If nothing else,make sure you read this :

    “Many people… in the world do not realize that they have not earned the food they eat, that they take without giving,” Mishkov told Reuters. “But if someone consumes more than they have earned, it means someone else is starving.
    It is right to see people who consume more than they deserve shattered by a financial crisis from time to time, to suffer so that they can become more reasonable.”

  • “Milk is not produced by computers”, said the monk.

    Apparently bears sh!t in the woods too. One farm with a small workforce can produce enough milk and other food to feed a small town. The rest of the workforce can build cars, produce glossy PR brochures for the cars, and drive them to the seaside and back. I suspect this banker-turned-monk has lost his mind.

  • “Milk is not produced by computers” @ Drewster. I think he’s being philosophical. He worked in climate that underlines the shallowness of your comment.

    Came across these guys while looking at leasing farms in Africa, out of interest. Interesting concept. I personally think its a bit risky but the idea illustrates something that the Monk dude has done in his way, although this idea is to mix both. Farming as a way of life? Combining it with other things, the Internet enables this.

    These are the kind of ideas that can emerge from this crisis.

    A wonderful article about concepts that some only take literally.It goes to show how devoid of any spiritual depth some of us have become.
