Set in a hunting lodge. "The owner of the estate is an ailing World War II general who lost an arm in the Battle of Stalingrad.

The general is out hunting in the company of high-ranking ministers, a young prince employed as the gamekeeper, and his princess. The general's wife plays cards with a young writer.

Ritter, Dene, Voss by Thomas Bernhard( Visual )

7 editions published between 1987 and 2008 in German and Undetermined and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ritter, Dene, Voss involves the Worringer sisters--both Viennese actresses--preparing for their brother's return from the Steinhof mental institution in Vienna, where he has been a patient for some time. Dene is the driving force behind an attempt at reintegrating him into family life while Ritter remains skeptical. When Voss, a tormented genius (loosely based on last century's great, idiosyncratic philosopher, Ludwig Wittgenstein), finally appears, it becomes clear that he never planned to stay for good. The play takes place before, during, and after lunch, unfolding through caustic dialogue in this 'misanthropic comedy.'"

Bernard Lietaer ist überzeugt davon, dass die gegenwärtigen Herausforderungen der Menschheit innerhalb des globalen monopolistischen Geldsystems nicht zu lösen sind. Seine Vision findet in einem Armenviertel am Rande des brasilianischen Fortaleza die Verwirklichung: Eine zweite selbst erfundene Währung, der Palmas, hat in mitten in der Armut eine blühende Wirtschaft aufkeimen lassen. 40 solcher Banken arbeiten bereits erfolgreich in Brasilien und im Wochentakt weden neue gegründet. Selbst gedrucktes Geld funktionert nicht nur, sondern oft auch besser. Davon zeugen Tausende lokaler, ergänzender Währungen weltweit. Paul Singer, Brsiliens Staatssekretär für solidarische Ökonomie bringt die Sache auf den Punkt: Wir müssen die Macht über unser Geld zurrückgewinnen
