Future of Money - Imagine

It's April 1, 2020, and the socioeconomic gap has widened. The people on the government roles for assistance have outpaced the government's ability to provide money or services for all of them. On this day, a new business model has opened its doors. "Barterers R Us" is open for business to provide an exchange of goods and services for those who have time and talent, but are without the economic means to supply their own families with basic needs. Perhaps a family has grown more vegetables than… Continue

Is bartering obsolete? At any given time, somewhere in the world barter is very much being practiced. In Germany after both world wars, bartering rose again as a system to replace the collapsed monetary system. In third-world countries, there are several which don't have a system beyond barter to depend on. In many cases of bartering. People will accept things of intrinsic value for their own products or services with the intention of retrading them in the future, and not for their own use. The… Continue

Future of Money - Team 21 - Jacquie Godsill

In a world of individuality, where we think of ourselves first, there should be an incentive to partiicipate in collectivism. There should be an alternative form of currency to achieve this. The concept would be to give people remuneration for good deeds to their fellow men, women or children. The currency would be an ellaborate plastic bead with an imprinted hollogram so it would be difficult to make counterfeits. These beads could be worn as adornment in any fashion one chooses. They could be… Continue

Mission #8 - Learn - Crisis Mgmt Jacquie Godsill

The most devastating disaster would likely be a large magnitude earthquake. The initial use of Ushahidi would be to respond to emergency situations. People would post blogs to facebook, twitter, either by SMS text messaging, or MMS video posting or traditional on-line information sharing. As in Haiti, the government and other rescue operators such as the red cross would access Ushahidi and use it as a source to get first responders in to lifesaving operations.



Another use of Ushahidi… Continue

Mission #6 - Act - Jacquie Godsill

Young women in the Bay Area dropping out of high school, often due to teenage pregnancy, is a self-perpetuating problem. Many young mothers are unable to give their children a stable home environment and the benefit of a positive role model of an educated parent. Too many of these young women end up working minimum wage jobs, or dependent on the social services, which are stressed and limited due to budget constraints.



Next Step Learning Center in Oakland, California is a program to… Continue

ACT: We all know that little things make a difference. Two things I intend to change to save energy are first, to switch to a non-battery operated toothbrush. The second thing is to minimize what laundry I put into the dryer and use a clothesline instead.

Mission #3 - LEARN

LEARN: Growth in the Solar Power energy sector in the United States grew by 17% in 2007, and is projected to compose 10% of our country’s energy needs in 2025. The keys to future success of the industry are they need to make components easy to plug together and use. The electric utilities need to make a commitment to bring solar energy into the array of sources currently feeding the power grids. Tax incentives should be extended for further research and development

Mission 1 - Learn

Food insecurity in the US is on the rise according to the US Census Bureau. Food insecurity is measured as diminished food consumption, or a change in eating patterns due to a shortage of funds. This could include increases in food stamps, or reliance on food pantries. Households which experienced higher food insecurity reported impacts on food security occurring more than six months of the year.
