Who we are:
The New England Futures Group (NEFG) acts as an independent, non-partisan, Australian-centric economic commentary. The New England Futures Group takes on the challenge of understanding markets, economics, and technology in a changing and increasingly globalized world.
Started by David Levingston in 2015, NEFG was formed by a collection of individuals who shared a similar goal of ensuring the survival and prosperity of economically challenged Australian regional communities in the face of evolving Global changes.
While undertaking to understand the driving factors of regional decay, it became clear that those who lived in regional communities were at the mercies of the technocrats, global corporations, and foreign governments in ways that could hardly be imagined. Policies instituted in one nation on one side of the globe could, in profound ways impact the everyday lives of those who simply want to go about their everyday lives, on the other side of the globe, and while we believe that while small communities individually have little power over the tides of global change, the individuals within those communities who drive innovation, employment and ultimately culture, have no knowable limit to their influence.
The New England Futures Group tries to make sense of the unsensible so as to better equip these leaders of tomorrow.
Since 2017, NEFG has moved to focus on the most terrifying prospect the world is going to face, which is one of no growth and negative interest rates. We believe that because of the decades of political mismanagement of “other people’s money”, the world’s economic foundations of positive interest rates and individual economic autonomy are becoming unraveled in the mountains of government debt and unfunded liabilities. We believe this threat is so significant that it has the power to throw the world into war, stop innovation, rob wealth from diligent savers and lead to social break down.
We believe that men and women all have the power to do horrible things to each other when resources are scarce or they believe that they are being robbed.
We believe that the global economic machine of progress is being replaced with global financialization and central bank manipulation.
We believe that the nominal economic world is failing and destroying the real economic world of production, innovation, and progress.
We believe that this foolish mismanagement of state institutions will be paid for by the everyday taxpayer.
We believe that individuals who aren’t reading the signs of the times and hedging for this possible future will fall as victims to it.
We believe that the damage has been done, there is now no clean or painless way to fix these issues and that the intelligent individual is the one who acts in light of the consequences.
