BRICS-landen willen wereldhandel de-dollariseren
Good article, interesting subject.
I think a multipolar world is a good step forward.
The more poles, the less the chance for corruption.
But maybe more chance for violence?
Before the unipolar world, there was a lot of war and fighting to “settle debts” and steal gold, etc.
Moreover, the US government has a bit of oversight over the Federal Reserve, a private bank that controls the supply of Dollars.
The US army enforced the oceans, allowing for cheap trade, but meaning that whoever didn’t use dollars got busted.
But the West also has some standards about human rights, equality, social contract, constitution, rule of law.
Im not excited about the Federal Reserve or the US government controlling it all.
But im also not excited or trusting of the Russian government or the Chinese government.
What if there was a currency that could not be controlled, stolen, centralized by people and governments, and their corrupt ways?
What would a good currency do? What if we were able to monetize love and the intrinsic value of nature?
I think Bitcoin could mean something for a global civilization there
but I also get sick of all this high tech stuff
all this specialization that comes with complex civilization etc.
great if we can colonize other planets and thereby save life from an asteroid impact or something…
Even better currency is, knowledge and awareness of the 8 forms of capital and ecology
That things don’t have to be bought, sold, calculated so much at all
because we understand that life has intrinsic value and intrinsic limits to growth
that cultural awareness
I call permaculture
awareness of what is permanent
a culture that recognizes the relationships in biology that make life possible, fun, beautiful, transcendent
