Some Questions

{This is something I had started writing months ago, and I no longer remember whether it was meant to be more than these questions. Since I feel that they are still quite relevant, I decided to publish them as they are.}

What are alternative micro-economies that exist alongside of/outside of capitalism?

Why don't we dedicate more time and resources to exploring those alternatives when the system that we have in place routinely excludes or reduces the opportunities available to people with physical and mental disabilities, former prisoners, immigrants, the un- or under-educated, people of color, women, and the historically impoverished?

What is this fundamental belief in price tags that denominate the terms under which goods or labor will be exchanged, and that forms the basis for calculations of debts carrying a tsunami's worth of moral force?
