Mutual Credit, the Astonishingly Simple Truth about Money Creation

Mutual Credit, the Astonishingly Simple Truth about Money Creation | Economía Solidaria | Scoop.it
“ Mutual Credit is the way money is created in barters worldwide. Barters don’t barter. They don’t use national currencies to finance their trade and that’s why they are called that way. But they use their own means of exchange to pay each other, so ‘barter’ is a misnomer. ”

Progressive Utilization Theory - P2P Foundation

Progressive Utilization Theory - P2P Foundation | Economía Solidaria | Scoop.it

"The principles of Sarkar's good society are developed in his comprehensive theory: the Progressive Utilization Theory, or PROUT. [4] PROUT attempts to balance the need for societies to create both wealth and grow as well the requirements for distribution. To achieve this, an integral part of the PROUTist vision is to create income floors and ceilings progressively indexed to aggregate economic growth. Thus wealth will not be hoarded and thereby underutilized or misutilized, as in the case of global stock markets. However, unlike socialist utopias, which argues for equality, PROUT accepts individual differences and the desire of individuals to own limited property and goods as well as the key role of incentives in spurring technological innovation and economic growth. And unlike Green perspectives focused solely on equilibrium, PROUT is focused on prama, or dynamic balance, or progressive sustainability.

ecosentido's insight:

PROUT makes sense to me. I am using most of the theory's ideas for my business and my business relations.
