Healthy money for a healthy world
The Gradido model can create global prosperity and peace

The Corona crisis has fundamentally changed our world within a very short time.
The dominant financial system threatens to fail around the globe, followed by mass insolvencies, record unemployment and abject poverty. Only with a sustainable new monetary system can humanity master these challenges of the 21st century. The Gradido Academy for Bionic Economy has developed such a system.

Economic Bionics relies on the common good currency

Over the past 20 years, the Academy's bionic economists have developed the concept for the introduction of their common good currency. It is modelled on nature and has the potential to solve all the world's monetary problems. The compensation system 'Gradido' follows the law of nature that only where something passes away, something new can be created.

Stable money supply
maintains the balance

In the Gradido system, money is created on the basis of population development. The boundless multiplication of scriptural money is thus a thing of the past. In contrast to the current system, money is created on a credit basis without incurring debts. Instead, 50 percent of the created money expires within each year. This planned cycle of growth and decay keeps the money supply stable and the system in balance.

Fatal errors
of the current financial system

The bionic economists have identified three main causes of poverty, exploitation, hunger, wars, refugees, diseases, environmental destruction and consequent natural disasters.

1.
Money creation through debt: Over 95 % of the world's money is created by debt. Consequently, each credit on one side results in the same amount of debt on the other.

2.
Through interest and compound interest, the gap between assets and debts, wealth and poverty, is widening.

3.
The disregard of the cycle of becoming and passing leads to this law of nature breaking its own path. Fatal forms of "transitoriness" are financial crises, inflation, wars, environmental destruction and other catastrophes.

Active basic income

The money is distributed according to a three-pillar principle: for every person in the world, a total of 3,000 'Gradidos' (GDD) are assumed each month. One third goes to each citizen as an active basic income, the second third goes to the state for its services to the community and the third part goes to a compensation and environmental fund to enable the remediation of the economic and environmental hangover from the past.

The 'Threefold Good'
protects people and nature

The basic ethical principle of Gradido is based on the 'threefold good', i.e. on harmonising the good of the individual with the good of the community and the greater whole - in the sense of nature and the environment. The individual is part of the community, and the community is part of the 'big picture', the ecosystem. If one of these three aspects is neglected, the whole system is shaken.
