Economic Balance

What is Economic Balance?

Let's rediscover the basics together

Native / Female / Peripheral Economies

Since historical times, humans did cooperate in groups to meet their needs. The first human economies to appear on the planet were not military based. They were primarily based on the power to hunt or grow food. As the primary human economies on the planet, we can refer to them as "native" economies. Also, as their power came from the power to sustain life, we can refer to them as "female" economies. Another important aspect to notice about native/female economies is that they naturally grew all around the world where it was possible to sustain human life. Because female/native economies can thrive all around the world simultaneously, we can also refer to them as "peripheral" economies. As they do not compete with one another, female economies can merge peacefully with one-another to benefit from a larger economy, so ultimately it is possible to unify them all as one female economy.

Military / Male / Central Economies 

Following the natural evolution of life, once native economies were established, a new link in the food chain appeared : military economies. Military economies appeared when groups of people started to be able to live on the work of others, by force. More than 2000 years ago, people like Alexander the Great started to produce tokens of value that they gave to their armies to be able to rationalize the behavior of their soldiers while forcing everybody to support the army through taxation. Since that time, central / military economies slowly grew and replaced peripheral economies until today when they regulate almost all human economic activity. As male economies are based on the power to kill, they are competing with one another and ultimately, all male economies need to submit to the strongest. So ultimately there can be only one military economy on the planet. This is also what tried to be done at the Bretton Woods conference of 1944 : unifying previously competing military economies under 1 global financial system.

Economic Balance 

Military economies are very powerful but, as their power is based on the power to kill, they have to coexist with the peripheral economies that sustain their life (families, ecosystems, ...) in order to survive. That coexistence, at the human level, means that a portion of the economic activity should be left for the native / female / peripheral economy that is naturally in tune with ecosystems. Once the Peripheral Economy is up and running, an important parameter to adjust will be the level of centralization of the total economic activity.

The economic activity happening in the Peripheral Economy will need to be reported to Governments so they can adjust the level of taxation imposed on their populations. When taxation is reduced peripheral economy will grow, and when taxation is increased peripheral economy will shrink.

Central Economy

What is the Central Economy?

also called "male" or "military" economy

Central economies were historically created during warring times to fund armies. In the current central economy, as the monetary mass is created through debt creation, economic activity tend towards perfect centralization. Central economies are perfect to force everybody to work as one in a unified international economy, but their price structures only take into account the needs and desires of their center. The needs and desires of working populations (the periphery) are not taken into account in the central price structure. Thus, the populations are being "consumed" to exhaustion and they repeat that same behavior to the ecosystems around them. 

Peripheral Economy

What is the Peripheral Economy?

Also called "native" or "female" economy?

The native / peripheral economy is based on female value : the power to give life. In the economic dimension, the power to give life lies at the business level where food, housing, clothing and everything else is being created. Instead of all the measurable value being created at the center, in the peripheral economy all measurable value is created at the business level. So in the peripheral/female economy, each business able to produce goods and/or services is granted, after a basic accreditation process, the right to issue tokens of value that are exchangeable worldwide. Because peripheral money is backed by the goods and services waiting to be sold, peripheral tokens of value are "property rights" over that production and the peripheral economy can be understood as a structured international barter economy.

In the peripheral economy, current national currencies are used as units of measure. So instead of creating "true" central dollars (which are created only at the center), businesses create "peripheral dollars", "peripheral euros", etc... The balance of payments between Local Economic Systems will be controlled by adjusting conversion rates based on consensually-agreed rules. 

All rules and requirements for the peripheral economy will be agreed by consensus between all participating businesses. At the moment, an advisory board is being created with native and non-native leaders who can guide the resurrection of the native economy in the spiritual and political dimensions. The material dimension of the peripheral economy (its internal structure, its rules and regulations) will be determined entirely by and for all participating businesses.

Getting Started   

Bringing Native and Business Spirits on board

Building evidence based trust for all

A trust fund is being created to fund the resurrection of the native/peripheral economy. Native and non-native trustees will need to approve in consensus all transactions being performed on the fund. The money received will be used in 2 ways:

  1. On one side, funds will be used to support grassroots native elders to meet twice a year to guide the development of the native economy. 50% of the funds received will be used to that end. 
  2. On the other side, funds will be used for the creation of local economic systems in native and non native communities. People will need to be paid to take care of the creation of databases controlled by each community, for communication with and training of business representatives, and for taking care of the daily activities of the newly created local economic systems. 

Once a few local economic systems are operating their own peripheral economies, the next step will be to setup an accreditation program like the International Accreditation Program for Local Economic Systems to bring them together as one and give strength to their emerging peripheral economy. 

Financial reports will be available to all stakeholders, internals and externals. There is nobody on this planet who could be, we believe, against the resurrection and modernization of a part of the ancestral "native" / community based / peripheral economy that will complement and support the central economic system that sits at the top of the evolution of all Life on this planet. Everybody with good intentions is a stakeholder of the peripheral economy.

Trustees are only a minority, but advisors are also being gathered to guide, together with trustees, the development of the native / peripheral / female economy. Anybody interested is welcome to email us at info@peripheraleconomy.org to get to be known to our group and become an advisor as soon as basic trust is established. As soon as funds will be gathered, a conference call will be organized with trustees and advisors to determine how they will be spent, which community will get to create their own peripheral local economic systems first, how the accreditation program will be setup, and so on...
