Computing professionals have skills and experience relevant to the proper design and implementation of systems of government. In the January 2009 the author offered two binary measures - one old, one new - to attack the monetary disease now severely affecting the world. The old one would limit artificial entities such as commercial enterprises to two levels of ownership. The new one would limit representations of value such as money to two levels of abstraction. Both measures are drastic and basic simplifications. The measures actually being taken by governments, or supposedly being taken at, for example, last month's G20 Summit, either attack the disease's agents through regulation or attempt to ameliorate its symptoms through fiscal stimuli. The disease probably retreat, but be left alive to return later in a stronger form.
