What would the world be like if money was issued at the point of creation of beauty, sustainability or something of lasting value? What if it was issued directly to the person that created it, the moment they created it? Would artists do better or worse?
Conversely, what if a debt was incurred by the creation of anything ugly, violent, which pollutes, which poisons, which degrades, which causes human misery or which contributes to waste? How would most hedge fund managers and bankers fare in that sort of an economy?
How would the economy be different if those were the rules?
What stops us from changing our monetary system to one that works more like this one?
