Common Good Finance
This week 8 of us got together in Greenfield to test our new rCredits Game. Notice the tiny paper money in the photo. US Dollars are dark green, rCredits are rose.
The game is intended to give players a deep understanding of the rCredits system, including:
* the mechanics (how it works),
* Its potential (how rCredits offers us a chance at real community-centered economic democracy),
* how to contribute to its success, as a participating individual or company, and
* How to assure its success, as a community
We didn't get very far. The learning curve was too steep and there is probably too much math. So we're doing a little redesign.
Nevertheless, the basic structure of the game seems sound, so we are optimistic that it may soon be useful for helping people learn to create and run a Common Good Community. 2 weeks 2 days ago.
