I submitted a project to Good Magazine to support my creation of a currency, as well as to use the opportunity to cause others to make their own currencies— to flood old monetary systems with new money. BECAUSE WE CAN. While it seems ironic to ask for money to do this, I think it is worth taking the chance on money to make different money as well as for using internet attention as a platform to beat the impenetrable deaf dead horse.
Money is a promise, and we’ll never run out of those. I will make a unique currency to use for trade. You should too, and I’ll help you get started. Let’s flood the market of every day transactions with temporary, unique, homemade currencies and be surprised at the possibilities of exchange.
About my currency:
I have collected all receipts from December 2011. I have divided the receipts into either ‘groceries’, ‘eating out’, ‘transportation’, ‘health’, and ‘various’. All the money I spent on these things is pure debt from Sallie Mae and a personal loan. The receipts, in their groups, have been paper mached into rocks, and are being cast into metal. More details as they become available including exact numbers for the receipts, cost of production and use.
