Austerity in stretching investment capital   

 

2018 1008

We take it as more than probable that the amount of capital available for SRN’s will be scarce compared to the number of folks who could usefully benefit from living in them.  To make that pool of capital reach as far as possible we will be looking for austere, but adequate, design over aesthetic, appeal in our search for the physical components of the SRN. 

As important as beauty is in human life, there will be time enough for a mature community economy to satisfy it.  If we truly want to make communities affordable, we must be looking for smart dwellings imbedded within an infrastructure honed to provide a robust standard of community self-reliance, at the least possible cost.
