Time for a New Theory of Money by Ellen Brown By understanding that money is simply credit, we unleash it as a powerful tool for our communities. posted Oct 28, 2010 The reason our financial system has routinely gotten into trouble, with periodic waves of depression like the one we’re battling now, may be due to a flawed perception not just of the roles of banking and credit but of the nature of money itself. In our economic adolescence, we have regarded money as a “thing”—something independent of the relationship it facilitates. But today there is no gold or silver backing our money. Instead, it’s created by banks when they make loans (that includes Federal Reserve Notes or dollar bills, which are created by the Federal Reserve, a privately-owned banking corporation, and lent into the economy). Money as Relationship In the payment system of ancient Sumeria, prices of major commodities were fixed by the government. The concept of money-as-a-commodity can be traced back to the use of precious metal coins. The Credit Revolution

ecash In the United States, only one bank implemented ecash, the Mark Twain bank and the system was dissolved in 1997 after the bank was purchased by Mercantile Bank, a large issuer of credit cards.[2] Similar to credit cards, the system was free to purchasers, while merchants paid a transaction fee. In Australia ecash was implemented by St.George Bank, but the transactions were not free to purchasers. In June 1998, ecash became available through Credit Suisse in Switzerland. "ecash" was a trademark of DigiCash, which went bankrupt in 1998, and was sold to eCash Technologies, which was acquired by InfoSpace in 2002,[citation needed] currently know as Blucora. Plaintiff sued alleging trademark infringement and unfair-competition claims. The court rejected defendant's argument in denying plaintiff's motion to dismiss defendant's counterclaim.

The Blog: Symbionomics Themes What follows is a synopsis of the major themes we are exploring with the Symbionomics project (see kickstarter link on the right). Obviously, this is just a starting point. We are open to these concepts growing and evolving as this process unfolds. With each theme, we are seeding an online video discussion (as linked to in the titles). Ultimately, we will have video forums for each theme. New Media: In the last twenty years, a wave of new tools has transformed the way we communicate. Bitcoin: de la révolution monétaire au Ponzi 2.0 Derrière l'idée révolutionnaire, libertarienne et anti-banques Bitcoin ne fait que reproduire un système injuste. Toucher aux règles monétaires n’a rien d’anecdotique. Lorsque nous dépensons, que nous travaillons, tous les jours, ce que nous faisons a un rapport avec la monnaie, sans même que nous y pensions. Que se passe-t-il alors lorsque des geeks créent une monnaie universelle, décentralisée, sécurisée, anonyme ? En apparence, une révolution. Qu’est-ce que bitcoin ? Bitcoin est une monnaie virtuelle créée en 2009 par Satoshi Nakamoto, un personnage mystérieux dont personne ne connait la véritable identité. Bitcoin est donc deux choses à la fois : il s’agit tout d’abord d’un outil très basique de gestion de portefeuille, un logiciel open-source que tout le monde peut télécharger et lancer depuis son ordinateur. Un système monétaire sécurisé, anonyme, et pourtant sans banque ni aucune autorité centrale. Comment ça marche ? Il suffit de cliquer sur un bouton pour participer au réseau

Flattr: A Social Micropayment Platform for Financing Free Works People have been talking about "micropayments" since the early days of the world-wide-web, so I'm always skeptical of micropayment systems. Flattr is an interesting variation on the idea though. It's a voluntary system, without the overhead or chilling effects associated with "pay walls" and it puts donors in control of how much they spend, allowing them to split their donations among beneficiaries based on a monthly "pie" model. The greatest asset of Flattr is its simplicity of use -- similar in many ways to the various social networking services that abound on the web today. Flattr may well succeed, and it may fill a niche of financing small projects from free software to online videos. I found out about Flattr a short while back, got an invite to beta-test the site, and have had a little time to play with the interface. The idea is pretty simple. Flattr functions very nearly like a social networking or social bookmarking site -- but with money So what do you get for your money?
