Cooperation: The Wealth of Nations Game
Robert Blain Ph.D.
I am working on getting an hour of work adopted as the world money unit. Already, exchange rates correlate .90 with what they would be if based on the hour. I have published and unpublished material on this idea that I would be happy to share with anyone interested. You can download my Cooperation: The Wealth of Nations Game from hourmoney.org for free. It simulates existing economies and the one based on hour money.
I am trying to bridge the gap between the fringe nature of complementary currencies and the huge mainstream need, by introducing an enhancement to mainstream banking and transaction products with the vision and values of CCs at its core. There are two good introductory power points on the bottom of the home page (one was for the ACCESS Foundation CC Conference) and then a more meaty white paper further into the site.
