In first principle and if perceived in literal terms, the ''stock exchange'' is supposed to be an almost socialistic mechanism for the distribution of wealth and profit and a facility for financing business... supposedly way above and beyond a construct like the E.U.

I do not believe it trite or romantic to imagine that now, as much or even more than ever, it is important for artists, (writers, film makers and musicians, visualists etc), positivist motivators, teachers....what ever ......and ''ordinary'' people, to research histories, consider actions, responsibilities and ramifications in deeper more prolonged ways and use the WEB to self- inform. Find one point of view, then another and another
