Money Opportunities!

Monetary Alternatives 
for Ethical and Economic Democracy

Many innovative approaches to solving the problems have been worked out. You are encouraged to examine the following levels:

bulletINTER-NATIONAL: United Nations, G7, D8, EC, G15, Commonwealth, Agenda 21 Signatories agree to Cancel National Debts; Europe issues EURO as stable medium of exchange
bulletNATIONAL: Governments Issue Interest- and Debt-Free Money as a Public Service
bulletFINANCIAL: Banks pay a License Fee for the privilege of issuing money and don’t lend more than they’ve got: 100% Money rather than Fractional Reserve Banking
bulletSOCIAL: Citizens use Time Money and Barter Money as Virtual Currencies

The solutions to money, finance and economics are manifold. Paragraph 33 of Agenda 21 signed in 1992 by most governments in Rio, asks for innovative financial mechanisms. A commitment to economic democracy offers ample opportunities for action on many levels:

Politicians and Governments

bulletMoney as Medium of Exchange can complement Money as Scarce Commodity
to reflect the wealth of a nation’s natural resources and the activity of its citizens
