We think maybe we have stumbled upon one answer.. // Future of money video project http://www.emergence.cc/futureofmoney/ // A circle of gifts – article by Charles Eisenstein http://ow.ly/3cAcu // In a local currency the notes act as an exchange mechanism. In a gift economy there is no exchange. What function would notes then play? // Money facilitates transactions between strangers. Could a gift economy currency facilitate gift transactions between strangers? // Money helps a society adjust where it puts its effort. Can a gift currency help a society adjust where it put its effort? // Gift economy blog by @kjwrite http://ow.ly/3cBwx

  • alphalo: When we think currency we usually think exchange. But gifting has no exchange.

  • alphalo: A currency is something that flows or circulates.A gift currency would be something that flows or circulates without exchange #futureofmoney
