Another economy is possible
We can create a more human economy through a peer-to-peer, growth sensitive, self regulated economic agreement.
Products, services, and projects for which we commonly use money can be accomplished using agreement-based resources
leaving MONEY, CREDIT AND DEBT OUTSIDE OF THE EQUATION. Establish networks of trust at both local and cross-border environments.
