The resources section provides access to background information to different proposition topics and will be added as topics are added to the propositions list. Because of the nature of the growth in online material there is likely to be a delay in our placing all relevant links in this section so readers can help by suggesting links. Links do not need to be supportive of proposition positions but can cover counter-arguments so as to sharpen the logic in propositions to make them be seen to be feasible, relevant or irrelevant. However, all possible negative consequences of any propositions do need to be identified.
The resources used are all available online and they include documents, briefs, videos and pod casts posted on different W3 resource platforms. The links are provided as a list under each proposition topic below. By clicking on the topic, that section will be presented with the relevant list. The list is under constant review and update.

Where does the RIO-Real Incomes Objective approach come from?
The Price Performance Ratio is a coefficient identified by RIO development work to measure the degree to which companies contribute to inflation or deflation. It was first proposed by McNeill in 1976. How is the Price Performance Ratio (PPR) estimated?

The policy and regulatory isolation and prejudice of wage earners
Bank of England money supply decisions were often explained by economists using the Quantity Theory of Money (QTM) the monetarists go to explanation of the reasons for decisions concerning changes in money volumes. The economist Hector McNeill recently provided an analysis to show the QTM could not explain the damage created by quantitative easing because significant variables are missing from the QTM. His short paper is revealing since it points out a fundamental error in monetarists theory and practice.
