Re: Global Currency System

Please help make the Manifesto better, or accept it, and propagate it!

we have a limit for what we can achieve. We can have atmost, an energy
currency in one country. How can, the turning of one country, say India to
an energy-based currency help ?

How will it  benefit the pioneers to convince the followers ?

Subject:Global  Currency System

Hope now most of us understand globalisation without
a global currency system will become the biggest scam
in human history comparable to slavery.

Energy mobilisation is the key aspect of trade in
goods and services this was true from the time of the
barter system. Major corruption in trade system happened
with fiat currency system and the large scale use of
fossil fuels, without considering the global impact/cost
of using the fossil fuels.

All i am saying is the global currency system should
consider/reflect the energy mobilisation in production
of goods and services, that is the vary *basis* of trade.
The current international monetary system does not
consider this, hence the system gives undue advantage
to the developed nations who use huge amounts of
fossil fuels, without considering global impact/cost
of using fossil fuels.

The technology is all about doing things in a more
cost effective way, but when we say cost effective,
we have to consider the cost of using fossil fuels,
if a process of manufacture uses more energy then it
should reflect in price of the goods produced.
Today's currency system is not based on energy, hence
it does not reflect the cost of energy use.

Many advanced technological process we use today for
manufacture/production of goods are not cost effective
compared to the earlier process that used more manual
labour, this will become obvious if we have a global
currency system based on energy that automatically
account for the use of more fossil fuels in case of
the advanced technology process.

Major impact that energy based global currency system
will have is hourly rate of unskilled labour will
become the same all over the world, the remuneration
for same skill level will also become similar all over
the world.

The large difference in the hourly rate of unskilled
labour in different parts of the world is the proof
of the international currency system scam.
