In the age of the fourth industrial revolution, economists and futurologists alike a fiercely debating some existential evolutionary issue.
The most important of all will be the Universal Basic Income. An illusive utopia currently not feasible in our unhinged society where people average standards of living vary so much from country to country that eliminating inequality world disrupt our economy to the point of oblivion.
Mobility and Industry along with administration are fast being automated, eliminating the need for a human workforce.
This leaves a gaping hole where our human identity used to be. Who are we, are we the skills and talents we can contribute to an economy. Or are we humans with the inherent ability to grow and transcend ourselves.
The factor that keeping us from expanding our horizon right now is our artificial dependency on currency for survival.
There are only two ways around this existential challenge.
Either we eliminate money (currency) and we move into a new system of exchange and store of value.
Or, we go into a situration of abundance, where the perceived value of currency is diminished to a mere administrative one and no longer necessary for our survival.
So how do we diminish theperceived value a money.
In other words, how do we createabundance?
Humanity is ‘enslaved’ by debt.
Debt creation can be attributed to only a few things.
Mortgages/Loans & credit
Creation of currency is mainly done on the backs of the private citizen that takes on loans in all forms in order to participate in our current standard of life.
In doing so, new currency is created and excisting currency is depreciated.
To pay debt back, people are required to pay intrest, which triggers the creation of new curreny.
This is a perverse never-ending cycle of currency enslavement.
Can we use the currency markets to turn a debt-creation system into a Universal Basic Income?
We don’t need to limit ourselves to Fiat currencies. The world has grown accustom to the fact that there are alternatives to fiat. We just need to be very diligent in selecting the assets to deal with.
A derivative is an instrument whose value is derived from the value of one or more underlying, which can be commodities, precious metals, currency, bonds, stocks, stocks indices, etc. For most common examples of derivative instruments are Forwards, Futures, Options and Swaps.
None of these markets are done in the actual real-life economy.
Leveraging these instruments in trading requires a massive debt creation by investment banks, again triggering currency debasement and ultimately enslavement.
The currency markets are the biggest derivaties markets in the capitalist system.
The currency creation system has a built-in necessity top keep on creating new currencies. Designing intrest into the equation requires a constant creation to be able to pay loans back.
A stock exchange is the market in which securities are bought and sold.
By design, the value of a stock is at least 50% thin air. To illustratie this point one needs only to explain that if all holders of a stock, sell atthe same exact time, none would receive the supposed value of the stock.
Companies need to constantly perform in order to keep their valuation up. This creates a 100% focus on revenue growth instead of Corporate Social Responsibility.
Revenue outweighs humanity.
The target audience for stock investors in people with money who have an exit strategy or who are speculating on the volatile nature of assets.
This in and of itself is a feeding ground for eventual collapse, as we see in an average cycle of market crashes of 8,1 years.
