Poverty is not inevitable ; our old system maintain it. Our monetary architecture is part of the problem by impeding the creation and distribution of wealth.
Money is just information, a way we measure what we trade, nothing of value in itself. And we can make it ourselves, to work as a complement to conventional money. Just a matter of design.
Go Open Money !
