QUESTIONS (excerpt)
What interest should governments have to support a "second economy"?
- They see that the gap between poor and rich should not grow further if they (as a government) want to survive and all other "alternatives" (demands of IWF or of the world bank) do only lead to further deepening of that rift.
-  It helps the people directly, it is so-to-say help for selfhelp.
-  Also governments of leading industrial nations will support pro- jects of "the second economy", because with this one of the causes for terrorism will be rendered, the social gap between the rich industrial countries and the so-called developing countries.
Where does the money come from for the support of "the second economy"?  It has to come from the other (first) econo- my. "The second economy" is not independent.
- The   purpose is absolutly not to separate the two economies, purpose is rather to develope "the second economy" slowly step by step but consequently - in the beginning certainly also with money from "the first economy". With that  the disappearance of the dictatorial superiority of the companies is achieved. The labour costs per piece of this kind individually produced items are not able to compete.
- This is certainly true. Alone -  a new way of production evolves.  Alone the term of labour costs per piece is not applicable here because with the production of these kinds of items nobody pays or gets paid salary. Also the competitivness as a criterium is not applicable, because the produced item is not supposed to be sold at all - for what reason should it then compete with whom on which market? If producer and user are satisfied with the result of his work  the aim has been reached comprehensivly and completely.

A manufacturer needs resources, where should they come from?
- This question will be a real limitation of the possibilities. But it is before everything else a technological problem, because a  manufacturer can work well with  waste products, in the sense of recycling. This has to be worked on further and actually is. A limit in regards of energy usage will remain principally though from nowadays view, even if all processes run considerably more energy efficient, because production is decentralized as opposed to central with high losses.

A "second economy" can be realized only in 'islands'.
There truly the start will likely be: "the second economy" evolves preferably where "the first economy" has withdrawn because it cannot make profit any longer there. What is left behind for the people in this region? - possibly really only the try to get along increasingly without "the first economy" by "the second economy" being practized.
