What We Believe
Let us share our vision with you.
Our passion is guiding communities, local networks, big and small to develop strong and trusted mutual credit clearing systems where the value created ripples through but is contained within their local community.
When starting a local currency many believe that possessing the right technology is the key, but that’s only part of the challenge.
We believe that it is important to operate with accepted high standards of practice, and shared ownership and mutual responsibility.
GETS Plus vision is committed in guiding communities to achieve these high standards.
Growing Local Economies with Local Currencies
The underlying assumptions, frameworks, and institutions of our economy often go unquestioned, and one of the least understood pieces of the economic puzzle is money itself. Money and currency are critical leverage points for a sustainable local economy, and city leaders can do a lot to direct resources and initiatives that will enhance the quality of life in their communities by developing new forms of exchange.
Beyond money and currency lies the role of capital; the book also explores the wide array of capital that communities need to build: natural, social, human, institutional, cultural, built, technological, financial, and others to shepherd the power of the economy to the service of a healthy, vibrant, and sustainable society.
THE FUTURE OF MONEY
Creating New Wealth, Work and a Wiser World
A brilliantly clear-sighted analysis of how on-going money innovations in dozens of countries around the world are proving that they can resolve key societal problems such as: jobless growth, community breakdown, the economic consequences of an aging society, the conflict between short-term financial thinking and long-term sustainability, and monetary instability itself. This book provides pragmatic solutions to each one of these issues.
The debate it will create will be a contentious and passionate one.
Lietaer starting point is that money is only an agreement within a
community to use something as a medium of exchange. This agreement is
being placed under an unprecedented strain, due to a wide range of
factors (from the creation of cybermoney and currency speculation to
social and political issues).
One From Many
VISA and the Rise of Charordic Organization
"We must conceive of and help implement wholly new forms of ownership, financial systems, and measurements, free of the attempt to monetize all values that bind (us) to next quarter’s bottom line, gross maldistribution of wealth and power, degradation of people, and desolation of the ecosphere, or our stories will be increasingly immoral and destructive".
The End of Money...
...and The Future of Civilization.
Like the proverbial fish who doesn't know what water is, we swim in an economy built on money that few of us comprehend, and, most definitely, what we don't know is hurting us.
Very few people realize that the nature of money has changed profoundly over the past three centuries, or--as has been clear with the latest global financial crisis--the extent to which it has become a political instrument used to centralize power, concentrate wealth, and subvert popular government.
