Circular Money

Circular Money | Economic & Social Networks - Networked Economy | Scoop.it

STRO's innovations
Circular money software
This is software for mutual circular money networks that use a 'sub' currency to strengthen the economy in the region, city or district. Companies strengthen mutual ties and help each other to generate more turnover, but they also have the certainty that they will be able to spend outside the network after a certain period of time. This approach is strongly recommended for shrinking regions and large urban districts where money from people and companies flows too quickly from the region / district and no longer flows back to the local companies.


Time technology
This technology ensures that expenditure and money from credits are guaranteed to continue circulating in the circular money network for a certain period of time. During the agreed period, this circular money can only be spent with participating entrepreneurs. This will further strengthen the local economy.
The opportunity to double the effectiveness of government, corporate and consumer spending!


Collaborative
credit In our circular money networks, all companies contribute to the costs of loans from participating entrepreneurs. The worse things are in the regular economy, the easier it is for entrepreneurs to obtain credit in circular money. The companies in the network are more willing to pay this contribution, because they know that the loans provided will be spent with them and that they are in fact desperate for extra turnover in an economic crisis. The joint contributions cover high risks, so that innovation and transition are given extra opportunities.

A Message from the Future II: The Years of Repair

Do we have a right to be hopeful? With political and ecological fires raging all around, is it irresponsible to imagine a future world radically better than our own? A world without prisons? Of beautiful, green public housing? Of buried border walls? Of healed ecosystems? A world where governments fear the people instead of the other way around?

“A Message From the Future II: The Years of Repair” is an animated short film that dares to dream of a future in which 2020 is a historic turning point, where the lessons of the Covid-19 pandemic and global uprisings against racism drive us to build back a better society in which no one is sacrificed and everyone is essential.

The film is a sequel to the 2019 Emmy-nominated short film “A Message From the Future” with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and features the art of Molly Crabapple, with the political storytelling of Naomi Klein, Avi Lewis, and Opal Tometi. The cast of narrators from around the world includes Tometi, Emma Thompson, Gael García Bernal, and the Nigerian poet and activist Nnimmo Bassey.
