A guerilla gardener in South Central LA

http://www.ted.com

Growing your own food is like printing your own money. Ron Finley plants vegetable gardens in South Central LA -in abandoned lots, traffic medians, along the curbs. Why? For fun, for defiance, for beauty and to offer some alternative to fast food in a community where "the drive-thrus are killing more people than the drive-bys." Gangsta gardener.

Bitcoin to be regulated in 2013?

http://www.datelinezero.com

In Dec 2012 a European bitcoin exchange said it had been granted "payments service provider status" by French government officials. (Meaning French government considered the exchange to be like Paypal.) If other companies that trade in BTC seek to be legitimized by governments, it could undermine one of the basic things that defines BTC -- that it works best outside the "white market" sector.

The World Bank Wants Eastern Europeans Above-Ground and Paying Taxes

http://reason.com

The World Bank has clued in to the fact that many Eastern Europeans prefer to work in the "shadow economy" — that is, off the books and out of sight of tax men, inspectors and other assorted bureaucrats. This has the World Bank very concerned, for a variety of reasons — some convincing, and others, not so much. By the way, World Bank Employees are exempt from income taxes.

Consumer Disobedience. How to save a bundle and stick it to the man

http://www.huffingtonpost.com

This huffington post article does everything but use the word agorism. I'd say most of the liberty lovers here already do this. I do think this article is worthy of some airtime for the new listeners and newcomers to the ideas of freedom.

Bitcoin buyers throw good money after bad

http://www.marketwatch.com

The issue is whether Bitcoin will ever be so widely adopted that it acts like a real, stable currency. Right now, it’s more like a commodity with wild price swings on rumors, articles, anonymous chat-board postings, and well-publicized problems with theft. Most people should wait at least until those issues are resolved. Generally, however, average folks shouldn’t be making direct forays into currency trading; Bitcoin feels a bit like online investing, but it’s more like diving into foreign exchange with even less information on which to make currency calls.

Civil Disobedience on a Paper Plate

http://www.mercurynews.com

The underground market seeks to encourage food entrepreneurship by helping young vendors avoid roughly $1,000 a year in fees -- including those for health permits and liability insurance -- required by legitimate farmers markets. Here, where the food rave -- call it a crave -- was born, the market organizers sidestep city health inspections by operating as a private club, requiring that participants become "members" (free) and sign a disclaimer noting that food might not be prepared in a space that has been inspected.

16 Signs The U.S. Economy Is In Trouble

http://www.datelinezero.com

This isn't an exhaustive list, by any means. But it's a list of 16 recent news items that spell trouble. From Wal-Mart itself warning people of inflation, to the fact that food manufacturers are quietly reducing the size of food packages (so that they don't have to raise prices ... for the time being), there's trouble on the horizon.

The author suggests not panicking, not worrying ... and looking to agorism.

Time Magazine - great article on agorism and kids dropping out of HS

http://www.time.com

I'm astounded that this article appeared in Time (or at least on their website). They rationally propose the fact that college might not be for everyone, as well as talk about the underground economy:

"Faced with the burden of financing the decades-long retirement of aging boomers, many of the young embrace a new underground economy, a largely untaxed archipelago of communes, co-ops, and kibbutzim that passively resist the power of the granny state while building their own little utopias."
