A crash course in changing the world.

New forms of using money: roadway community banking

For this task first I tried the easy ones (I'm being honest) and donate some bucks for sometostart or countinue their business, but then I realize that because I live in Mexico is really hard to donate through a site like Kive. Then I choose to buy something with paypal, but is the same issue: because I don't have an adress in the states is really hard for me to have an account.

So what did I do? well, as Alchimist recomended in the mission, I join forces with some of my friends to try a new trade form. and this is how.

Las week was Mexico's spring break, so i travel by car with some friends to another city. What I proposed was to put all our money together and then start a value point scheme. So all the community expenses were gonna come out of that money pool (gas, snacks, tollpays, and so and so) and everyone must write down what was going to be their contribution to have an even participation.

So if some put less money than otherone, or buy something not for the community but for themselves, he or she was to do something extra like drive or be the one who sleeps on the floor or something like that. Luckly everyone decided to put the same amount in the pool. So we live with food and gas and tollpayments and everithing else without worrying about it, and knowing that we could take som of that money for ourselves in case we need it. It was like a community bank, the only think I didn't know how to convince them was an special currency hehe

Cheers!!!

I´m thinking on something similar together with my friends . . . I might copy your idea Mario.

awesome, you should. The only thing is that at some point there was no more food, gas or money so we had to put in a little more. But if you manage it well i'm sure there's is going to be enough

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle.

In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
