The conscience of humanity is calling.
It has three simple demands.
But these are not demands for politicians or existing governments.
These are demands of all people.
Every citizen on planet Earth.

Co-create a new economy...

Edwin Clarence Riegel was an American author and independent scholar who  promoted an alternative monetary theory.

Riegel’s ideas, from the 1930s,  suggest that a simple and dependable means of exchange would do more to enhance the dignity and well being of the common man than any political reform.

Riegel had a plan to fix the economy, and all our political problems too:

“When man has mastered money he shall have mastered not only his economic problem of prosperity but also his political problem, for he will see that money has no place in state functions, and, the money power being entirely in his own hands, he will easily master the state and clearly define its services.

Thus money must be seen as the means of mastery of all economic and political problems. Until we have mastered money we shall not master any of our problems.”

Riegel’s plan conceived of money as a simple accounting system among private traders. What Reigel proposed was a decentralised economy, made up of circles of trust, in which individuals and businesses issue each other credit without the need for banks or state intervention.
His ideas are as elegant and relevant now as they were in the 1930s.
But now we have the internet to help make his ideas reality…

So we’re building Riegel’s vision, using open source software and cooperative governance.

This has never been tried before!

But it needs critical mass to make it work…
