Gradido - Financial system for a better future

Trend reversal instead of vicious circle

Künzelsau,15.09.2021 - The devastating effects of the recent natural disasters and long-term economic consequences of the Corona crisis make more and more people fear for their existence. Politics reveals above all an inability to preserve the livelihoods of its citizens. Thus, fear is growing steadily and inexorably, while forward-looking solutions are still not reaching the public. In the face of poverty, wars, environmental destruction, the dramatically growing need for nursing care and the obvious educational misery, the prevailing economic and financial system has proven itself to be unsuitable almost worldwide. It would be a fatal mistake to return to the daily routine that defined our lives before the crisis. The economic bionics of the Gradido Academy therefore put an end to this 'vicious circle' and instead rely on the millennia-old successful model of the natural cycle of becoming and passing away: The Gradido model with real future potential!

Longing for meaning and solidarity

The fundamental question of what life will be like after the Corona crisis is also on the minds of the renowned German Zukunftsinstitut in Frankfurt. In a white paper, it has outlined various scenarios of how the world could change in the future. One of the theses published is the "question of the purpose of economic activity: more and more profit? Or perhaps better, more socially and environmentally beneficial solutions to problems [...]?" The researchers' summary is: "One thing is clear: surviving the crisis together helps to create a new mindful way of dealing with each other."

A life in mindfulness and responsibility for each other is also the declared goal of the economic pioneers of the Gradido Academy. In more than twenty years, they have been able to develop a model at their independent research institute that promises security, prosperity and opportunities for development to all people on earth. Based on the common good currency 'Gradido', the equally conclusive and impressive combination of an 'Active Basic Income' with the principle of 'Unconditional Participation' and the 'Triple Wellbeing' creates a completely new economic and financial system. The core and basis for the Gradido model is the natural cycle of becoming and passing away.

Healthy money for a healthy world

"The Corona crisis has fundamentally changed our world within a very short period of time and the increasing natural disasters also make the urgency of a course correction abundantly clear," warns Bernd Hückstädt, co-founder of the Gradido Academy: "The prevailing financial system is threatening to fail dramatically around the globe, followed by mass insolvencies, record unemployment and abject poverty. Humanity can only master these challenges of the 21st century with a sustainable new monetary system."

Futurologist sees chance for course correction

Futurologist Matthias Horx currently sees particularly good opportunities to change the world for the better. In a guest article for the Redaktionsnetzwerk Deutschland, RND, the visionary explains: "Corona has drastically pointed out to us that we have long been in a crisis of prosperity. [...]". We had fallen into the hedonistic treadmill. The saturation crisis of a prosperity that had no more direction than the constant 'more'." The trend researcher adds, "But through Corona, something got moving in the deep layers of society, in the heart of culture. In the crisis, a deep longing for the forest, the landscape, the horizon suddenly emerged, a deep hunger for moss and stars. Never before have so many people been willing to cooperate with each other in new ways, to reinvent the world."

Great Cooperation for a better world

This new way of thinking is what the business pioneers of the Gradido Academy want to use to begin the peaceful transformation. They invite people of all ages to explore the 'Gradido Model' together, to examine it with their hearts and minds and to support it. "The more people recognize the necessity and meaningfulness of such a course correction and actively participate in it, the greater the chance to finally replace the failed economic and financial system, which causes so much hardship and misery worldwide, with a model that is friendly to people and life," says the owner of the Gradido Academy Margret Baier.

Gradido generation contract completely without debts

Based on nature's success models that are billions of years old, the economic pioneers at the Gradido Academy have spent two decades developing that concept of the common good that is based on turning away from the debt money principle and introducing the 'Gradido' (GDD). The basic ethical principle of the new economic and financial system is based on the 'Threefold Good' in order to create the best possible opportunities for life and development for the individual, to secure the social life of the community and to protect nature to the best of our ability. People of all ages have the opportunity to receive 1000 Gradido (equivalent to 1000 €) per month as an 'Active Basic Income'. In return, they take on tasks in the community that they like to do and do particularly well. For the community also 1000 Gradido (GDD) are scooped for each person in the month, which makes taxes superfluous. The third pillar is another 1000 Gradido, which is scooped monthly for an environmental fund and dedicated to the protection and rehabilitation of nature. Future natural disasters will thus be mitigated and will no longer necessarily lead to economic disasters.

About the Gradido Academy
The Gradido Academy for Economic Bionics has developed an alternative 'common good currency' based on the models of nature. Nature follows the rule that only where something passes away can something new emerge, and thus long-term improvement (evolution) is possible. Its recipe for success is the 'cycle of life'. If our economy were also to follow this natural cycle, then, according to the assessment of the bionic economists, practically all the world's monetary problems could be solved. The Gradido model is based on the idea that not only every person, but also every state receives income generated on a credit basis. It can thus fulfil all its tasks without having to collect taxes. Deflation or inflation are a thing of the past. The economy is freed from the constant compulsion to grow, the danger of a collapse of the financial system is finally averted.(
