Questions of Value - From Commons to Communomics: Resisting Privatization
Someone has to do it. If we are to think through structures of evaluation, even momentarily, we have to grapple with money. Money represents only %2 of the financial value in circulation, and yet nestles in every pocket, purse or consciousness. Nationally denominated monies – that store, easily transfer and index wealth - have overwritten alternatives. I’m learning to invest in the future, and to speculate. A future for money will explore micro-currencies that circulate value in specific communities, to resist State expropriation. And macro-monies, commons based currencies emerging in networks of trust, coproduction and abundance that existed before, and will flourish again, as faith in States and their currencies, evaporate.
