2012 Ideas for Change: part 2
By Exchanghibition Bank on January 27, 2012
Financial exchange is only one of many possible exchanges in our world, just as financial value is only one of many values existing in society. Spiritual, social, and emotional values ( to name just a few……) can’t all just be quantified in measurable piles of banknotes. So our 2012 banknote is not just about financial exchange: In order to acquire one our customers will also need to provide us with their Idea for Change, which then will be linked to their uniquely numbered banknote. We already published a first collection of inspiring Ideas which we received, and now hope you will get inspired by this collection as well:
33. Reward the good consumer / Punish the bad consumer. Tax is something from the old days. In a world where resources are becoming scarce and the human population is growing at rapid pace we should start today with measuring how and what we consume and pay (tax) accordingly to this principle. I would like to start a platform which enables people to understand how and what they consume every day. From there I would like to make a connection to government, WTA, world food organizations in order to start a reward system for every conscious and healthy consumer.
1361. I would like for the whole world to live without FEAR. My idea is that we need to practice being fearless…this can be done by closing your eyes and going for a walk, preferably at the beach where you have more room and are less likely to hit anything, but an open ,flat field works well too. Close your eyes and walk slowly.When you feel the urge to open them, realize that is FEAR and keep them closed. work up to 2 minutes. My idea is that one moment, on one day, everyone in the world will stop feeling fear simultaneously, all at the same time. For one moment, no fear will exist on the planet.
13. My Idea for Change is not something new. It has surfaced many time before, under different names. Today we call it ridesharing, 10 years ago we called it carpooling, and 20 year ago we called it hitchhiking. We don’t need more cars in this world; we already have 800m+ of them. Most of us don’t even want a car – just to get somewhere. So what if a rideshare service that it is soo easy to use, safe and reliable comes around? Let’s hope my contribution to that promise will make a difference. I have called it Toogethr – and hopefully this will bring us closer to one another, and at the same time save money (there seems to be a shortage for some) and our planet. Not bad…
888. Make a start to build the foundation of H.E.A.V.E.N.(Humanitair Ecological Agricultural Virtual Engineerings Network), a one man cell network, that should lead to a leading 5 headed company with place and school for orphanes and which should lead to a free and independent state, with own sources and money/ trade value, where people are not able to be forced to do things, they do not want, because of dependence on money. All in honor of one God, that is united under all religions and several views of the world.
2001. When a party is finished all that remains are the memories and the pictures. Why not make a party and create something lasting for more than 1 night in the process of having fun ? For 2012 let’s create a maze of sunflowers in the spring while having a party. And we can come back in the summer and enjoy the result.
1228. To Exchange the world I will have to Exchange myself. Me myself must be the Exchange that I want to see in the world. I will take action to change nego’s into poso’s and to live life to Exchangeion in order to make it a better one for the other and me. Time after time I will hand over the 2012 notes to the people who will notice positive Exchangeion within me.
1355. Hello, I think we need to go back to local money, from a person, or a company, or bank we trust..!! If we don’t trust the money, that we can buy something for it, it is just a piece of paper, it is nothing more than ..FAKE-MONEY..!!
1362. I have a passionate belief that we need to redefine the state-of-being that financial services should bring to individual and collective members of society. Do we want banks to provide safety, convenience, the free movement of money, a safe retirement, or the sort of joyous experience promised in so many commercials? The particularly risky financial industry practices that led us into the recession could be described as financial disservice, yet unlike the period following the Great Depression there is no clear agreement on how to prevent such a crisis from reoccurring. America’s most significant post-recession banking regulation was created in the name of helping individuals, yet it only ensured that profits were shifted from the financial to the merchant sector. Money is simply information, and the whole of financial services is rapidly evolving from physical to electronic form. Even the poorest of individuals are often willing to pay for a myriad of electronically-enabled services that use information to create experiences, from telecommunication to music, yet anger toward the banking sector is growing. I’ve interviewed some who now believe that banking should be free, like drinking water in public places, yet this seems neither practical nor sustainable. I propose that we begin anew by redefining the whole of the experience that we expect banks to provide to society.
