Only the 'Natural Economy of Life' can defeat poverty

Understanding, using and protecting nature

Künzelsau,17.06.2021 - When travel, restaurant visits, theatre evenings and social gatherings were forbidden, many people found a whole new approach to nature and a healthier lifestyle. Cooking classes boomed during the Lockdowns, as did grow-your-own herb and vegetable gardens. Walks into the surrounding countryside gave moving impressions of the beauty, the richness and the many hidden treasures around us. These experiences do not only hold the chance for more prudence in dealing with the resources of the earth and our own needs. In the over billions of years proven recipes for success of nature lies also the key to the world-wide victory over hunger and poverty. The Gradido Academy for Economic Bionics has developed a system of the 'Natural Economy of Life' on the basis of the natural cycle of becoming and passing away in over twenty years of research work. This 'Gradido Model' has the potential to end poverty, hunger, wars and environmental destruction worldwide.

Scientists call for rethinking

More and more people are becoming aware of the need for a course correction. On the occasion of the publication of his new book 'Mensch, Erde! We could have it so nice': "Slowly it dawns on us: health is more than pills and devices. In order to be healthy, the very first thing we humans need is something to eat, drink and breathe. And a tolerable temperature outside. Healthy people only exist on a healthy earth." Junior professor Dr. Verena Seufert, who has been given one million euros by the Robert Bosch Stiftung to research the sustainable use of natural resources at the University of Hohenheim, also demands, "We have to find sustainable ways of producing food so that we can feed everyone on this earth in the long term." Margret Baier, the owner of the Gradido Academy for Economic Bionics, goes one decisive step further: "We need to use nature as an example. Only with a new monetary system based on life, love, compassion and symbiosis can humanity master the challenges for the benefit of all. We need healthy money for a healthy world."

Gradido wants to feed all mankind and protect the earth

Economic bionics experts have found the solution for feeding all people on earth and protecting nature in the Gradido model. This novel economic and financial system was developed at the independent research institute of the same name over more than two decades on the basis of the most precise observations of nature. In the tradition of Leonardo da Vinci, the economic bionics experts have created a system that has the potential to defeat hunger and poverty once and for all. The co-founder of the academy, Bernd Hückstädt, explains: "Already today, twice the world's population could be supplied with biologically high-quality food. But this fails because of the old debt money system. As long as one person's wealth inevitably leads to another person's debt, people in poor countries will never have sufficient access to vital resources."

New money creation finally leads to global justice

The introduction of the Gradido model, on the other hand, could lead to a balance between poor countries and wealthy industrial nations. In fact, this would be achieved through the triple creation of money for every person on earth, which would ensure financial prosperity for every country in the world. Finally, those countries that have been fighting unsuccessfully against poverty and hunger for decades would be able to afford the technologies and know-how that are indispensable for sustainable food production.

The 'Triple Wellbeing' for quality of life and relaxed development

The precious core of the Gradido model is the 'Triple Good'. Based on this ethical principle, the system serves the well-being of the individual, the well-being of the community and the well-being of the greater whole in equal measure. The individual has the possibility to receive 1000 Gradido (GDD) monthly as an active basic income and in return to contribute to the community with activities that he likes to do or does particularly well. Creativity and potential development are to be entitled to everyone thanks to this basic financial security and provide for a healthy development and quality of life. For the community also 1000 Gradido (GDD) per person and month are scooped. Taxes and rescue parachutes worth billions become obsolete. Freed from the constant growth pressure, the financial system gains the necessary stability.

Protection for nature and the environment is the program

The Compensation and Environmental Fund (AUF) is provided for in the Gradido model as an additional pot in the amount of the state budget. It is used exclusively for the rehabilitation and conservation of nature and the environment. In total, it comprises as many Gradido (GDD) as the national budgets of all countries participating in the Gradido model together and would thus be the largest environmental pot ever conceived in the history of mankind. Nature would thus receive the best possible protection, without a financial burden on the individual.

Global prosperity as the basis for lasting peace

According to the research of economic bionics, the old debt-money system causes conflicts and wars with almost mathematical consistency. The peaceful transformation to a 'Natural Economy of Life' would eliminate the main cause of wars. Bernd Hückstädt explains: "If people around the globe can finally participate in and live healthily from all that our earth has to offer us, the basis for global prosperity and peace will be laid."

Time for the merger

According to the economic bionics experts, the crisis of recent years has made the flawed nature of the prevailing economic and financial system widely visible, as if under a burning glass. "Many people have understood that the time has come for a course correction," emphasizes Margret Baier: "More and more like-minded people are coming forward at the Gradido Academy to advance the transformation to a better world." In the spirit of a "Great Cooperation", thinkers and researchers from a wide range of disciplines are striving to pave the way together for a future fit for grandchildren in peace and harmony with nature. Many of these comrades-in-arms also take the opportunity to develop their ideas and visions in the Gradido Podcast - to make the Great Cooperation for the realization of the Gradido Model grow even further.

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.(
