You have to define in which group is every person before you can start the communication.

The article explain very well Risk and its components

Learn 5 - Time Bank (Banco del Tiempo).

I think this is the best idea I ever heard, The Time Banking focus in the important of people and what they can offer to the community.

This is a little introduction to the subject:

A time-based currency is an alternative currency where the unit of exchange is the man-hour.

Some time-based currencies value everyone’s contributions equally.

One hour equals one service credit. In these systems, one person

volunteers to work for an hour for another person; thus,… Continue

Defining My Evokation

The best leaders are those the people hardly know exist.

The next best is a leader who is loved and praised.

Next comes the one who is feared.

The worst one is the leader that is despised.

If you don't trust the people,

they will become untrustworthy.

The best leaders value their words, and use them sparingly.

When she has accomplished her task,

the people say,…

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

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.
