A Moneyless budget is an approach for managing resources needed by a given project, in particular project never accepts money, only direct donation of real resources. Not accepting money (imaginary/fictional pseudo resource) helps to better realize actual needs and dependencies of the project.
Clear definition of actual needs also can improve finding alternatives and involve more people into the process of planning and creating a budget.
As money on its own have no use (since it doesn't even exist in physical reality, just in imagination of some human beings), any project can state its needs and dependencies directly. All not available yet resources and help can stay published as a wish list of a project.
Instead of stating 'We need 5 mln BS' for Sharewiki this year
More direct and realistic budget for Sharewiki:
- domain name
- hosting for a website
- hosting for backups
- help with administrating the server
- etc. (but not any money!)
which again makes clear and precise wish list!
