in our life time,currencies change
every day,values fluctuate
they rise and fall with perceived exchange rates
which are not tied to gold at all
Ron Paul would have us back to gold
De Beers would love this(and Fort Knox)
i propose new values for our exchange economy-
Genevieve Vaughn proposed a compassionate economy
others say simple goods or market barter/i suggest emotional exchange might alter
what is most important in our lives.Quantify parenthood like baby sitting
charge more for those in custodial roles over Alzheimers
Anyone who cares receives more hugs and handshakes/
as well as food ,housing,transport
Promote positives via intrinsic worth-kindness quantifies itself
Look for those who care for others rather than themselves.
Jose Marti said"a society with only a few rich people is a poor society"
I say seek the good ,feed,shelter and love them back into circulation
so optimism and altruism become the new measure of worth and value
is determined by what you add to others' lives...
