Common Use of Bartering as Cadet Currency

Typically as a cadet, you lend people items (cleaning supplies, uniform items, accessories) and in return when you need something they give you one of those items. This trade system is almost a daily occurrence in the barracks as I may trade food for materials to help with cadet activities or let someone use my foot-powder to prevent blisters and in return I get starch to make my duty uniform. This currency works, however, sometimes you may not get your end of the deal and it can be…

Do it Yourself Currency

From the Upstart Business Journal, there is a post proposing that Do It Yourself Currencies are the future of money. These currencies are virtual and localized and the best thing about them is that they appear naturally when conditions are right. I think this type of experiment is important because it allows for a currency to naturally appear in a region according to its conditions and is specialized to the local economy. An example of this is the QQ coin for the QQ network or the M-PESA…

Where I'll be in 2020

In 2020, I will be a Army officer which means there could be a huge range of possibilities of where I would be and what I would be doing. At that time, I will picture myself in a foreign country contributing and leading soldiers against enemies of the United States or possibility being a part of peacekeeping operations. I would have a huge impact on fellow soldiers and natives of the country that I'm deployed at.

Jay Cousins as My HERO

My hero of social innovation that I am shadowing online will be Jay Cousins from AfriGadget because of the simple yet effective tools he created that can innovate African society one child at a time. One simple example is the Betabook which is a white board book that can help promote learning within Africa. I will keep up with them online by liking the AfriGadget page on facebook.

Economic Sustainability

This is important to get right because many societies have the tendency to build their economies or markets on a process or resource that will not be there for the long-term or only allow short-term benefits. To help countries, especially those in Africa, continue to progress it is important to get this secret right. It will help the population be motivated to improve their standard of living and overall contribute towards their economic goals.

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.

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.

Where I will be in ten years.

I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More
