human being, the real value of all things is determined by the work,
because only through the work he come into possession, transforms and
enhances everything that exists in nature, including himself. Without
gathering, hunting, farming, mining and processing, the human being cannot
use anything necessary to meet their own needs. And without information and
training, he cannot use himself. All these activities are working. The same
natural resources and energy have no value without the work. The real
wealth, from food to knowledge, is therefore made up of
everything that comes from working.
Money was adopted
to measure the value of this wealth and to change and keep the same.
Originally, the money was a real existing asset, also derived by work, the
value of which, determined by the work it takes to get it, was the
universal equivalent, i.e. the measurement of the value of all other goods.
Subsequently, with the receipt of deposit, money became an object
representative of existing real assets deposited to who issued the receipt.
custodians of the goods began to issue receipts without to receive any
asset but in exchange for debts, i.e. through loans with interest, the
money no longer represent existing real assets but only future goods. And
since the future goods can only come by the future work necessary for their
production, from that moment the money represents the future work necessary
to produce the goods payable with the same money.
interest on this money created out of nothing, it realizes a gain without
producing goods but simply subtracting the value of work actually
performed. Not only. Just because you can make money without producing,
this money was issued in excess compared with future work, not of one but
of several generations. And because the amount of money is increasing
higher than production, it is impossible to produce all the goods that the
money is supposed to represent. So, most of the money does not have and
will never have any value. For this was adopted the legal tender, by which
a law establishes that money without real value has a legal value. With
this legal tender the humanity and the entire planet are dominated (and
we remove all legal tender. What would be the effects? There would be no
more debts nor credits, the existing wealth would be only represented by
movable and unmovable goods already produced (their value would be
determined by the work done for their production), while the future wealth
would be represented by goods and services to be produced with the job. But
most of the existing wealth would remain concentrated in favour of a small
minority. How to redistribute? The only solution is to adopt a new
universal currency guaranteed since the issuance by real existing goods and
that represents the value of the work (so that the value of goods is
determined by the work done to produce them). This currency must be
distributed equally among all the inhabitants of the planet and must have
an insuperable limit of issuance.
universal currency is Dhana (www.dhana.org).
This, apart any ideology and all philosophical speculation, is the only way
to return the money to its original function and to recognize the true
value of the work. There is very little time to do it, before the situation
