The new remuneration system
for man and nature
Gratitude, potential development and the common good
Gradido can be used universally as a reward system for voluntary work, thanks and discount points, community currency, emergency money in the event of a financial crash and a national complementary currency to promote prosperity. Gradido is created as a credit balance through contributions to the common good. Gradido is open source and free of charge worldwide.
There is a shortage of teachers in Germany. According to the PISA study, a quarter of students cannot read, write or do math properly. This is also noticeable in Lieblingsstadt. For Michael Miteinand, the town's committed mayor, this is an intolerable state of affairs. The Lieblingsstädter find the solution.
Volunteers drive people around the city and surrounding villages. They drive the elderly to the doctor, pick up children from school and bring working people safely to work. They organize shopping services and much more.
Research project for a humane monetary system
Currently Gradido is a compensation system for Voluntary commitment:
Voluntary contributions to the common good are compensated with 20 Gradido per hour. For their Gradidos, volunteers receive benefits and discounts. They can also exchange ideas with each other as part of the Neighborhood Watch program.
But Gradido is much more than that:
Gradido is a Research project for a humane monetary system based on nature's model, which can bring prosperity, peace and freedom for all people worldwide. By using Gradido, we are researching together for a better future - for the sake of the children of this earth.
Following the example of nature
In more than 20 years, the Business Biologist of the Gradido Academy explores the economy of nature. Nature has been functioning successfully for four and a half billion years. The 'Natural Economy of Life' can probably solve all the world's money-related problems. The Gradido model follows the natural law of becoming and passing: the eternal cycle of life.
Self-regulating system ensures stable money supply
In the Gradido system, money is created on the basis of population growth. The unlimited multiplication of book money and debts is thus a thing of the past. In contrast to the current system, money is created on the basis of credit balances without incurring debts. Instead, 50 percent of the money created expires within each year. This planned cycle of creation and decay keeps the money supply stable and the system in balance.
of the current financial system
The business bionics team has three major causes be able to identify poverty, exploitation, hunger, wars, refugee movements, diseases, environmental degradation and related natural disasters.
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.
Through interest and compound interest, the gap between assets and debts, wealth and poverty, is widening.
The disregard of the cycle of becoming and passing leads to the fact that this law of nature breaks its way arbitrarily. Fatal forms of unplanned "transience" are financial crises, inflation, wars, environmental destruction and other catastrophes.
In the Gradido model, money is created according to a three-pillar principle: For each person in the world, a total of 3,000 'Gradido' (GDD) is created each month. One third goes to each citizen as Active Basic Income, the second third is given to the state for its services to the community and the third part goes to a compensation and environmental fund to enable the clean-up of the economic and ecological legacy.
The 'Threefold Good'
protects people and nature
Gradido's basic ethical principle is based on harmonizing the well-being of the individual with that of the community and the greater whole - in the sense of nature and the environment. The individual is part of the community, the state, and this in turn is part of the 'big picture', the ecosystem. If one of these three aspects is neglected, the whole system falters.
