Excited by this.
Presently doing a lot of thinking around this topic.
Started writing a sci-fi where alternative economic system is at the core.
In person participation a challenge, as in Dahab. But would love to participate in some way.
Present line of thinking is this.
- Everyone can create money but meeting the needs of others (where others are both human, system infrastructures and natural service providers).
- Money is then spent on scarce goods and services.
Money generated through meeting Need. Spent in acquiring Preference.
Example of difference between the 2.
I need to eat.
I prefer to eat the food cooked by a particular Chef.
The Chef automatically mines money when they cook for me. But if there is market demand, they can also charge money on top. We don't need money to eat, we do need it to eat a scarce dish.
In this way basic human needs are provided for. But we retain reward mechanisms and recognition, that allow for the greedy to thrive, through the meeting of our collective needs.
Connecting Monetary Value, to Planetary Value.
Anyway, more complicated than that in practice, but that's the general idea.
