The New Economies Panel at SIBOS Innotribe this year in Toronto represents the most important elements of a new economy which many people believe is emerging to replace the old one that continues to crumble around us.
The common message of New Economy movement is the vastly expanded definition for the term “Value’ – far beyond that which can be articulated with money. Very few organizations hold this idea as explicit to their DNA as The Metacurrency Project.
Few can deny that the Sun delivers all value to our Earth. The Mass of our Universe provides the rest; Gravity, Motion, and time. In this context, money is a trivial device that simply articulates the relatively archaic things that humans can manage to conjure and horde from the vast natural resources that are delivered to us for free.
The idea that Energy can exist is many forms cannot be separated from the fact that Value can and must also exist in many forms. The challenge that we face as a civilization is to build an economy that articulates all Value completely and truthfully.
I had the opportunity to meet Art Brock at The Future of Money and Technology Summit in San Francisco earlier this year. Art represents a very important voice in the discussion of new economies at SIBOS/Innotribe on September 19-23 in Toronto.
We look forward to seeing you in Toronto. If not, then thank you for continued interest and participation in the important subject of New Economies.
