The thing I have learned quite a while ago, which is connected to the future of money is the idea of a basic income. In general it is about disconnecting the money from work. Meaning, that even if you dont work, you will still have enough money to live a decent life. Everyone will get it, unconditionally.
It is based on the fact, that in todays modern world, we have means to make the work easier and to work less. The Ancient Romans and Greeks used slaves to work for them, while they were inventing things, talking about politics and philosophy (apart from heavy wine drinking of course :) ). Using slaves is inhuman obviously, but we have machines, that can work for us.
So why do we allways see the politicians care about new workplaces and why do the workes in a fabric fear the machines designed, so that they wouldnt have to work anymore? The answer is easy. If you dont work, you cant afford to live a decent life, so you either find a work, or starve, or steal. And if you cant find any work, and dont want to steal, you are in trouble.
The basic income is the solution to this, I think, because if you dont have to worry about your own living and if you dont have to work in a lousy job just to survive this month, you can do something meaningful. Now it doesnt mean the basic income should be set so high, that you would be able to just sit around all day sipping martini. It should be enough for you to afford to pay your rent, food expenses, some clothing and for example a book once a month. Or a cinema. That way, everyone would have some standard of living taken care of and if they wanted to, they could get a half-time or full-time job (now that people can quit their jobs, the job opportunities should rise) to get a higher standard. And in their spare time they could do something else. And trust me, they would do something else. Nobody can sit around all day long doing nothing, we have to do something. That way more people could devote their time to non-profit activities, better education, social care, developing communities, or hanging out with friends and neighbours.
I think the basic income is part of the magic pill, we all are searching for. And what is best, there are people already taking action. I am for example going to vote in this years election for a party, which suggest a system simmiliar to this, which I think is just a first step.
If you want to know more, here is a video about basic income (its german, but there is a possibility to turn on the english, or many more, subtitles)
