This study focuses on the unrecognized contribution and the consequences of ignoring the economic ideas of the great British technocrats from the first half of the XXth Century - Frederick Soddy and Clifford Hugh "C. H." Douglas. One huge gap in knowledge and misunderstanding which according to the author turned out to be essential and instrumental for the dangerously growing inadequacy of the economic thought during the XXth and XXIth centuries.
