Hi Laura

I guess the notes you found explain the terms SGS, U-6 etc, well. But that does not mean there is a correspondent term in your language. If they were European Union terms, most likely the systems imitate each others. But being those terms from the United States.. Even that you find the correspondent "siglas" (or abreviations maybe is the most correct word ), which would be really nice, most people will not know what it means. But hey, we are redesigning society here. So lets make sure our designs are as clear as possible

OK, here is me again. :P

As expressed before, The Monetary System perpetuates corruption, scarcity and insufficiency. So-called decency cannot exist in a world of competition, wealth imbalance, poverty and deprivation.

"Decency" brings to mind, at least in Bulgarian, thoughts about prostitutes and strippers, and their opposite - decent nuns. :D This is obviously not what is meant here. Someone suggested "honesty", which seems good, but I think it has a narrower sense than what is implied here. Would "morality" be appropriate in this case?

Hi Lizzie!

decency - the quality of conforming to standards of propriety and morality
http://www.thefreedictionary.com/decency

Hard to find a substitute. All the words I remember seem a bit limited. But maybe this one?

fair<img src="http://img.tfd.com/hm/GIF/prime.gif" align="absbottom" />ness n.Synonyms: fair1, just1, equitable, impartial, unprejudiced, unbiased, objective, dispassionate
These adjectives mean free from favoritism, self-interest, or preference in judgment. Fair is the most general: a fair referee; a fair deal.
Just stresses conformity with what is legally or ethically right or proper: "a just and lasting peace" (Abraham Lincoln).

Well, in the end I used "ethical behaviour". Seems like the widest term and it fits well.

What do you think about the word 'multiplicity'? It is used several times throughout the document. For ex.:

"In such a saner world, where we actually created things to last, inherently minimizing pollution/waste due to the lack of multiplicity and maximization of efficiency, a monetary system would be impossible..."

"This leads to high levels of multiplicity, waste and pollution".

"As noted before, the world’s people function within a monetary system that rewards scarcity, planned obsolescence, waste, pollution and multiplicity".

Can somebody give a definition of 'multiplicity' in this context?

Structures of the future can be near solid units, extruded as a whole.

What is the meaning of "near solid units"? The page is 63.

The original Activist Orientation Guide 2009 [HISTORICAL] | Projects | Linguistic Team International Pootle Project project
is currently being replaced/displaced by the new TZM Defined | Projects | Linguistic Team International Pootle Project

If you are focusing on the old version for historical purposes, I believe PF was referring to the understanding that the extruded units would still require some additional amenities, such as glass (or whatever newer tech replaces glass), before they were fully livable.
