Money as Commons

As an inspirational starting point for the discussions about Money as Commons at The Future of Occupy – Strategy workshop I would like to quote
Charles Eisenstein: Sacred Economics: Chapter 11, Currencies of the Commons

“Conceptually, it [a to be designed money] might look something like this:
Our money derives its value from the right to harvest 300,000 tons of cod from the Newfoundland cod fishery, the right to draw 30 million gallons of water monthly from the Ogallala Aquifer, the right to emit 10 billion tons of CO2, the right to pump 2 billion barrels of oil from the ground, the use of the X-microhertz band of the electromagnetic spectrum …”

I would like to invite YOU to join our online workshop (16-18 February)!
