Commons as Dividend

Jump to: navigation, search

Objective is to reduce hoarding, and reduced waste through enabling mutualization of costs.

The commons is a component and strategy that enables such approach.


The objective is to reduce dependencies towards monopolies. This includes a progressive reduction of dependency on a monetary monopoly.

Hence, within such attempt to reduce hoarding and reducing monopoly, dividends on investments in the form of hoardable tokens is drastically discouraged and reduced, and even less so in monopolistic monetary tokens.

Dividends are perceived in the form of use value and solutions,

within a broader systemic approach aiming at reducing hoarding of potential future solutions by enabling open linked data , high velocity of transactions, measurement of past - current potential future externalities of all interdependencies.


Hence, one ends up with a "reverse-capitalist" approach, which is more productive ( in terms of solutions / intelligence ) than current classical capitalist exploitation models that include hoarding as a strategy.

Loans may still be made, and be repaid in the currency they have been made in, ideally at no interest ( but with the potential to gain points, as with the JAK bank of Sweden ), to support the activities of the networked organization.

Investments can be considered, either at negative interest rates, or in return for non mainstream monopolistic currency, such as in the form of goods.

Taxes can be paid, yet ideally agreements are made as to pay taxes through providing value rather than in payment of a monopolistic currency.

Post-Capitalist , Post Financial Crisis Insurance is generated through the economic networks developed, as dependency on , and exposure to, monopolistic financial markets is progressively reduced over time.

Any usage and increased dependency on mainstream monopolistic currency is thoroughly evaluated, if it requires repayment in mainstream monopolistic currency.

Such loans will be considered if the economic network in itself is not able to generate interdependencies generating such resources without the need for a loan.

preferably alternative finance and contracts will be encouraged, to enable tax deductible ( to those who bring in such resources ) investments and donations to the networked and interdependent economic organizations and activities,

and various legal frameworks set up to limit liability and risk exposure of such partnerships.


Tokens can be generated within the creation of networked interdependent contracts, to facilitate non linear accounting and increase the velocity of transactions.

Incentive systems can be attached to such tokens.

Governance may be attached to certain approaches related to tokens.


Tokens and potential velocity of tokens can be considered within a broader information architecture optimised for collective intelligence, in support of solutions and potential solutions in the benefit of intentions defined by an emergent system of liquid governance.


Ultimately, the hoarded monopolistic currency may finally be understood for its externalities, and understood as unethical. If and when people would still give value to monopolistic currency, for people who accumulated it to still have access to production from a hyperproductive solutions oriented networked social economy, there will need to be some form of input in the form of their hoarded monopolistic money in support to a contributions based approach, in the economic network.

Ultimately, by growing such networked social economy in such way that reduces its dependency on mainstream monopolistic currency, hoarded monopolistic capital may loose its value and power, it not being able to impose a monopoly.
