On the Inauguration of
the Gesell Research Society’s Bulletin “Study of Free Economy”

Morino,Eiichi In
the wake of the crumbling of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of the Soviet
Union, those of us who have consistently opposed the repression of freedom and
the human spirit by totalitarian communism have good cause to reconfirm the
validity of our libertarian beliefs. At the same time, we may also reconfirm
the correctness of John Maynard Keynes’ prediction which sprang from his work
on the ideas of Silvio Gesell. That prediction, to be found in Keynes’ General
Theory, went as follows:

“…unduly neglected
prophet Silvio Gesell, whose work contains flashes of deep insight… I believe
that the future will learn more from the spirit of Gesell than from that of
Marx. The preface to The Natural Economic Order will indicate to the reader,
if he will refer to it, the moral quality of Gesell. The answer to Marxism is,
I think, to be found along the lines of this preface.”
