Conventional Money and Finance GO TOP
The MONEY we use for FINANCIAL TRANSACTIONS, and to store WEALTH and CAPITAL is based on 'trust'
Yet the 'value' of money has deteriorated over the years in a way that is little understood!
Everyone is familiar with money as a unit of account. Money serves two purposes:
(1) as a medium of exchange for the transaction; and
(2) as a store of value.
Money and double entry accounting is a very powerful system for accountability
When the population and the economy were relatively small, the impact on society and the environment could be ignored without much consequence.
But the 21st century is different. The population of the world is at record levels, and the degradation of the environment has become consequential, whether it is air pollution, water pollution, land fill, deforestation, ocean plastic or any number of other issues.
There is a need now for UNITS OF ACCOUNT that are relevent for ALL the impacts associated with economic transactions.
The money measure needs to be better understood. It is common to use a reference currency like the US dollar, but local currency also matters, and there may be funding currency as well. Besides the US$, other reference currencies might be the Euro, Japanese Yen or Chinese Yuan

THE GLOBAL ECONOMY HAS BEEN ON LIFE SUPPORT SINCE 2008
The banking system was hours away from total collapse Aand was saved by a massive injection of liquidity
Since then, then the banking system has createed around $4 trillion of new money to give the banks enough liquidity to survive and for owners to benefit from real asset appreciation.
The balance sheet of the Central Banks in total around the world increased by some $12 trillion dollars. This money was created because it was needed in order for the banking system to continue to function.

HOW THE SOCIAL ECONOMY CAN BE SAVED NOW

The social component of the global socio-enviro-economic system is not working well
Though in some ways there has been amazing social progress in the last fifty years, at the same time there are dangerous stresses in society that need to be fixed. Typically government and others in leadership argue that the is not enough money to solve these problems, but when the banks were in danger of collapse, this constraint disappeared in a matter of hours.
The constraint on social progress should be the capacity of the human mind, the human body and the human spirit NOT the amount of money people (in the banking system) have chosen to create
Accordingly, in order for money constraints social progress to be reduced if not eliminated, there should be a TVM Social Coin that enables the funding of everything that has the POTENTIAL to improve SOCIETY. In order for the TVM Social Coin to be mobilized there has to be PROOF OF POTENTIAL ... a concept very similar to the way conventional loan finance in banks already works where a loan is authorized when the is proof of profit potential.

HOW THE NATURAL ECONOMY / ENVIRONMENT CAN BE SAVED NOW

The environmental component of the global socio-enviro-economic system is being degraded at a dangerous rate
Much of the social and economic progress of the last 200 years has been achieved by exploitation of the natural environment. When population was samall and economic activity limited, the environment was not damaged irreparably ... but economic and social progress in the last fifty years has changed all of this, and serious changes in the environment are occurring and getting worse.
Pollution of all sorts is doing damage. Much of the pollution could be eliminated, but it would cost money to do so, and would reduce the profits for companies and the value of portfolio investment. There is no incentive for the big actors in the economy to make the changes needed.
A TVM Environmental Coin would enable the funding of everything that has the POTENTIAL to impove the environment. In order for the TVM Environmental Coin to be mobilized, there has to be PROOF OF POTENTIAL just as with the TVM Social Coin and the conventional bank loan.

A COMPLETE SOCIO-ENVIRO-ECONOMIC ECOSYSTEM

Expecting that maximizing PROFIT is going to get the results for the global socio-enviro-economic system is nonsense!
But maximizing for better results for SOCIETY, the ENVIRONMENT and the ECONOMIC PROFIT is perfectly possible. It requires appropriate UNITS OF ACCOUNT in order to measure progress and performance.
It also requires a better way to fund all the things that need to be done to improve the performance of the socio-enviro-economic system. Conventional finance is constrained by history, and some serious inconsistencies and inbalance in much of the thinking about the way the system works. Progress and performance should not be constrained by artificial limits on finance. The real limits are the intellect and knowledge of people, the available technology and the very real limitations of the natural environment.
