Goods

“In economics, a good is something that is intended to satisfy some wants or needs of a consumer and thus has economic utility. It is normally used in the plural form—goods—to denote tangible commodities such as products and materials.”

– source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Good_(economics)

 

“A commodity, or a physical, tangible item that satisfies some human want or need, or something that people find useful or desirable and make an effort to acquire it. Goods that are scarce (are in limited supply in relation to demand) are called economic goods, whereas those whose supply is unlimited and that require neither payment nor effort to acquire, (such as air) are called free goods.”

Problem:

  • Turning life into a commodity means that we’ve placed a price tag onto everything, making of this world a ‘market place’ where all that matters is profit and not the actual meaning/value of such product a a means to support Life. This is leading ourselves to the brink of self-destruction in an Economy where all that matters is obtaining the highest GDP for nations to compete in this global competition for the winning price of being the most developed economy, but such numbers never regard the actual living condition of beings, resources, animals and the damage done to the environment in such ‘transformation process’ of our living-resources to mere assets

  • Wealth is the defined by the amount of goods produced and consumed without realizing that money defines who gets the opportunity to produce such goods and the availability of resources, which is what leads many countries to invade others for the sake of obtaining such fulfilling need as the necessary goods to sustain laws of supply and demand, maintaining artificial values that in no way represent a pricing system created and destined to create a profit that represents the real cost of production that all goods should present.

  • We have given a name to resources for the sake of fitting into a belief-system that is our current economic system, becoming goods that are then suited to fit certain necessary patterns to create enough profit within a system where not a single denomination of money has been based upon life itself. This makes of our current system a great complex system of values that have no correlation to physical reality, and this is imposed to everything that can be sellable, such a everything that we denominate goods.

  • A lot of stuff is being created for the sake of profit, without such products being of indispensable need for human consumption and living condition- therefore, a lot of pointless jobs, industries and marketing purposes are destined to promote ‘goods’ that are far from being supportive for human consumption.

  • Animals, plants, nature are being extracted from their natural habitats in order to be turned into goods that can generate more profit – think of animals in a zoo, circus, ‘exotic plants’ or entire territories that become another factory machine to extract resources that turn into goods in a market with ‘free range’ and no scrupulous to decide what type of products are in fact being created as a necessity in the populace’s conception of what a ‘good’ means.

 

  • Clandestine goods are beyond the legal framework of regulations that can ensure the quality and nature of such goods are in fact beneficial for human use and consumption – this is a grave and ever escalating problem that only exits as such to illegally evade taxation and other permits that often violate human rights, societal codes of dignity and honor of living beings.

 

Solution:

  • Goods will no longer follow laws of inflation and depreciation according to market forces – or a few being’s decisions upon pricing – but will sustain a fair constant pricing that represents the recognition of the work/time invested upon the extraction, manufacture, transportation of such product.

  • Most of the production will be based upon covering necessary means to live life and satisfy/ better our living conditions, which means that anything that is less than supportive for human life will simply not have the workforce, resources and money destined for its production –this is how we’ll clear the space from useless products that do not benefit our living interaction and condition.

  • The good stuff as all the products that are meant to better our living condition  is what we will keep, sustain and procure in our new way of handling money as a means to buy what physically fulfills our living condition – this means that the definition of goods changes to being that which truly enriches life as a whole, as a community.

  • Free Stuff only makes our eyes go wide in excitement because of how we have – in the first place – restricted ourselves from our ability to have equal access to the Earth’s resources and all the tools and equipment that we have discussed within the previous blog 284. Capital Goods and Equal Money Capitalism –thus, recognition of there not being Free stuff implies that we then learn how to value life and work for it accordingly within the understanding of sustainability of as system where life is managed and maintained through an equal agreement of responsibilities and rights to profit in an equal manner.

  • Money won’t serve as a dominant factor within our transactions for the sake of profit making – the quality and nature of the good is what is of utmost importance, respecting all sentient beings from becoming profitable products in an abusive manner.  This means that everyone’s freedom to purchase and consume will be regulated by the sheer availability of that which will be made available to consume before it hits the market

  • Clandestine production will cease to exist once that there is no need to create piracy in the name of unregulated profit/to evade certain copyright and patent licenses – this will in turn also reduce criminal activities also linked with the type of black market productions that are mostly also a market that is Not beneficial for beings’ lives.

    Basic Solutions:

    Capital as Life

    At the moment – capital is referred to as intermediary goods – such as machinery and warehouses. Within Equal Money Capitalism – capital will refer to Life and include resources and people. Therefore – to value capital, means to value Life – and thus, all capital and all Life should be valued equally. For this – full employment is again a necessity.

     

    Free Stuff
    Within Equal Money Capitalism no free stuff will exist. This is one of the basic principles within economics (and physics) – There Ain’t No Such Thing As A Free Lunch (TANSTAAFL). With anything that is produced or consumed – there is always a cost. If this cost is not represented and considered within the pricing of the particular good or product, one is in fact stealing. Currently, free stuff is used to compete for consumers at the cost of the labour force creating the goods – because they will be paying the difference.

    source: Day 162: EQUAL MONEY CAPITALISM – The Way Forward

 

PRICING

Pricing on products will no longer be based on expensive or cheap– or making profit –but rather sustainable pricing that ensures enough money in circulation to make the system function effectively.

  

Profit

Profit is not to be understood in the same way as it is now. At the moment – profit is what is left after wages have been paid and production costs are covered. Within EMC – there will be no wages – your profit will be your wage. So – every time a product is scanned when it is bought – the computer sees what percentage of the price is allocated to whom – and immediately the money-allocation happens accordingly. So – there’s no need to wait a year to calculate profits – it will be immediate.

source: Day 164: Equal Money Capitalism – Preparing the Road for Change

 

    • Equal Money Capitalism: We shift our focus from producing goods in the name of profit to placing our attention to what is here as Life and requires Life support – and accordingly resources are distributed. We’ve objectified our economic system, caring only about things such as goods and money – while losing all touch with what really matters, as being Here, being Alive and Living on this Earth in a way that is enjoyable for all Now and in the Future. – Day 183: The Myth of No Alternative and Equal Money Capitalism

 

 

Rewards and Communal Benefits:

 

  • We will stop feeling like we’re losing/abusing/ desiring to own more, because the understanding of how private property is redefined to use what is here to produce what benefits the community/ society, since money won’t be the driving factor to buy or sell, but a real enjoyment and actual necessity of the good that is bought/consumed

  • A new way of interacting with our environment and all natural resources will emerge, since there will be no need to be converting everything into a sellable item, this will give us the gift of realizing we are no longer abusing life in means of profit – clear conscience is what real peace of mind implies.

  • Life is Equal  – therefore giving and receiving in Equality as in having equal access to what we require to Live  is the main Principle of Equal Money = redefining money into a means that values life as a physical aspect that we give and receive, a ‘token’ for our agreement to ensure that any form of profit generated from the wholesale of goods is given and received equally as a recognition of the support and work done to benefit the whole – there will then be no desire to accumulate, but an understanding of sustainability and ecological considerations of preservation

  • No more animal abuse for the sake of turning them into goods that are sold as sybarite means to satisfy people’s ‘tastes’ that only exist because of the current power money has and the ability to buy the abuse of life.

  • Stepping out of our current self-induced state of hypnosis wherein we’ve made of money our god, instead of regarding life as a whole that must be regarded as the one and only real value in this world, and that includes All = Equal Value = Equal Money = Life for all as all in an interdependent arrangement of work force to produce that which contributes to create a real meaning of the word Good in our every transaction with money.

World’s best Education is based on Equality

Posted in dignified living, Education, Equal Money, Equal Money System, equal quality living, Equality Development, protests, teachers, third world country, tuition fees with tags , , , , , , , , , , on January 5, 2012 by marlenlife

Finland has become well known for having an overall ‘high standard living’ compared to the rest of the world. In an Equal Money System, ‘high standard living’ will simply become Equal Life For All. By this we mean that every being will be born into a world wherein all support is given as a birth-right, regardless of any of the current perceived differences such as nation, race, family background, national economy or any other points that are creating/ enhancing the current social inequality in this world.

Finland’s example proves that a society that is regarding equality over competition thrives because the basic principles are understood: Equality empowers people = empowers a Nation, they understand that a nation’s backbone begins within the Educational System. When you have a system that inherently requires social inequality to keep its hierarchical structure in place – regardless of how this should go against all “constitutions”- an often large sector of the population is deliberately left behind, unable to afford quality-education; this means that what should be a birth-right is currently only possible to a selected few, leaving the rest having no option but to remain uneducated  while only working to be able to survive in this world.

It is almost impossible to create a point of Equality in an Educational system that is based on profit, competition and general profiling to maintain different sectors/ classes in society with a limited amount of opportunities to upgrade their position in society. Finland’s example remains just as that, a nation’s implementation that will still place them above the rest of the world which is how nations/ economic blocks are able to then use such superior position to their advantage. Equality is then missed even within their internal consideration of equal-quality education, because they are leaving the rest of the world out of their equation.

Let’s look at the rest of the world.

Kids are born into certain families, certain countries wherein their choices will be defined/ limited by the inherent amount of money they are benefitted by. This is unacceptable, it is obstructing a being’s ability to live because of being born into a pre-configured world wherein not everyone is able to ‘afford’ quality-living which includes quality-education. Imagine yourself being born in a third world country where you get to know of all the benefits and thriving positions other kids around the world have, while your ‘choices’ for education are non existent, where education could even be something reserved for only a few that doesn’t include ‘you.’ This is still exiting in this world and it becomes quite obvious that we cannot continue accepting social disparity and polarization in the name of  money/ profit/ greed with the nice tag of a nation’s economical standard in the world.

Education must Stop being a Product!

It’s been placed on the table how the existence of ‘private schools’ and ‘public schools’ creates a rift, a point of separation and discrimination that everyone becomes aware as soon as there is an understanding that higher costs = higher quality education. In America as well as in South America, private schools = good quality education, whereas public school means poor quality education – with their handful counted exceptions. Why have we accepted such differences as ‘usual’ and ‘normal’ if they are only based on money? Why would only a few get to be educated to become leaders while a vast majority is kept at a lower level so that they cannot possibly progress to obtain such ‘leadership positions,’ while being deliberately relegated and  bound to a single limited outcome throughout their entire lives: poverty, slavery, many of them not even knowing what ‘going to school’ is like.   This is certainly a crime against humanity, it is unacceptable.

Isn’t it an actual abuse toward ourselves as humanity whenever we deny each other the ability to have proper quality education, just because of the hidden-mechanisms (money) that  define our access to it? We’ve made of education another product that is sold according to people’s budget wherein the result is poor people having poor quality education, while rich people/ people with enough money can have access to better education. Elitism is formed this way which is the source of general social discontent due to the obvious separation it creates, not only at an educational level, but in all aspects wherein the rest of your life will be defined/ determined according to the schools that you attended to. Such discrimination is not an option, it’s a reality according to how we’ve set up this current system based on profit where Education is also part of the game.

One of the greatest problems at the moment is teachers not being paid sufficient amount of money, which is forcing many to quit their jobs – even if they genuinely enjoy them – and getting a more profitable one – often becoming entrepreneurs – because they’re not able to keep up with their bills. This is a single sign of decay within the educational system and all because of lacking proper incentives for teachers to continue their labor.  The same point applies for students the other way around – higher tuition fees are the cause of perpetual student-loans that end up being an endless debt at the end of your career without having any possibility to pay the money back, because there are no jobs available. No more endless debts because of Education.

Today we got to know that America is now around place #23 in educational ranks around the world – is this another sign that competition and a profit driven education is no longer working in this world?

Even the so-called quality-education in ‘prestigious private schools’ is still only focused on preparing children/ people to survive in a profit driven world.

In an Equal Money System there will be no need for such incentives, rewards or demands on higher wages and lower tuition fees because the entire system will have a set standard living that will be best for all in equality. This means that all will be equally empowered to the benefit of themselves and the entire world. Right now because of us existing in separation in the form of nations, cultures and  economic blocks,  it seems like the current order is ‘unchangeable,’  but it is actually a matter of understanding that if we want to prevail as humanity on this world, we all have to consider implementing Equality as the basic principle in our educational systems. What does competition brew? Further fight for survival wherein no one learns how to collaborate with each other for a single outcome that benefits everyone involved.

‘Divide and conquer’ has been part of the current system. Hence the key for this is getting money/profit/ survival out of the equation and considering the actual opportunity we have at hand to create a system that works in equality for all, where money becomes a single accountability tool for what we will already know is our responsibility.

Education is the indispensable first step each individual takes on to understand why Equality must be lived/ understood as a living principle to create Social Equality at all levels in our reality. We begin with ourselves by understanding how we have created ourselves in consideration of all aspects that we participate in our day to day living. Each individual’s life is taken through a process of self correction to learn how to live as Equals and eventually become part of the support to assist and support others to do the same – that’s the Equality point in application until everyone is ‘on the same page’ so to speak.

For this, we all require to educate ourselves first and the current educational systems are still flawed and immersed within the capitalist system, still having money as the ‘driving force’ behind it from any angle you can see it. Therefore, a never before seen process of education at an individual level must be taken into consideration before continuing trying to implement solutions without looking at the basic principles that must be considered as a premise to the creation of an Equality System. We are already doing this at Desteni and the Desteni I Process which are the ways in which us human beings can correct ourselves to be genuinely caring for  ourselves, this world and everyone in it as Equals. Concepts like Self Responsibility, Self Honesty, Self Correction become the key points to live by as a process of re-educating ourselves to consider the current problems we are facing in our reality and see the common sensical solutions that can be implemented once money stops being a limitation for it.  We can only conduct a change from the root by beginning with ourselves.

Equality Education- Quality living in an Equal Money System

Education is a pivotal point in the Equal Money System and is already part of our political agenda being walked by several beings – including myself – that are already proof that it is possible to change the current ‘human nature’ that has created this current system of social hostility and economical disparity. Thus, the solutions placed here stem from this process of self realization in terms of understanding how Equality must be implemented in all ways within the system. It is only through implementing Equality as the living principle in this world that the entire world – not only a few nations – can thrive and become that which we have always desired our lives to be.

Choices of education will be one and equal: the best possible. It won’t matter where in the world you’re born in, you’ll be equally empowered with tools that allow you to take self responsibility in this world effectively, while learning ways in which we can contribute to enhance our living conditions in a world that will no longer be based on survival, profit and elitism. We are already learning how to cooperate and coexist with each other, working together for a single outcome that will not be for further empowerment of nations against each other or as a form of competitiveness between individuals, but will always be based on what’s best for all,

Imagine how cool it would be to not have only ‘teachers’ as the ones with the responsibility to educate children, and instead virtually anyone could support children/ others in common sense. This is actual equal-empowerment, which is what Education should be at the end of the day, not only limited/ confined to classrooms and teacher-student relationships,  but lived in any activity/ task that we participate in.

The Design of Hunger

Posted in Crimes Against Life, Equal Money System, Labor, Reform the Monetary System with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 6, 2011 by marlenlife

1 of every 4 kids in India is Hungry – 1 of every three women are anemic/malnourished – 1 of 2 children are underweight and stunted – Only Evil Men can plot a entire country’s doom by perfect pre-meditated creation of astonishing debts through selling a product that’s meant to fail.

Five Steps to bring down a rising economy:

1. Create the Perfect ideal/Dream of Getting Rich

The Genetically Modified seeds by Monsanto were proposed as ‘magic seeds’, the ultimate biotechnology placed at the service of PROFIT and Planned Failure that “apparently” would NOT require further pesticides/insecticides for protection, as well as growing better which helped con.vince people in India that they could get significantly wealthy if the seeds worked as proposed. They decided to Take the Risk

2. Get people in Debt with your Product

Let’s look at the numb.ers here:

£10 for 100 grams of GM seed

VS.

less than £10 for 1,000 times more traditional seeds.

this means a 1000%  of Difference

Is this COMMON SENSE?

obviously NOT!

 

Farmers are then pushed to ask for loans at high rates of interests, taking the risks as they’ve been promised the greatest harvest they could ever imagine with those ‘magic seeds’. This is Taking Advantage of People in NEED and the gullibility they embody driven by their desire for MONEY and better Living Conditions.

[This step includes avoiding to inform of VITAL instructions on how to operate the product]
in this case:

The Farmers were Not Told about these seeds requiring TWICE the amount of water to grow.

With droughts propitiating crops to wither and die, the initial DEBT is NOT able to be paid within the expected timeframe of production therefore:

The farmer gets trapped

into a negative economy

with debt, and suicide

is an inevitable

consequence.

3. Make Sure they DEPEND on Your Product

When crops failed in the past, farmers could still save seeds and replant them the following year.

But with GM seeds they cannot do this. That’s because GM seeds contain so- called ‘terminator technology’, meaning that they have been genetically modified so that the resulting crops do not produce viable seeds of their own.

3.1 Create the Remedy for a Designed-Disease

The crops did get savagely eaten by parasites and all types of pests which forced the farmers to – in an attempt to save their crops more than once – buy the same company’s ‘Solution’ which were pesticides and insecticides – ironically – the same ones they would end up ingesting to commit suicide.

Considering farmers did NOT make enough money to keep buying the seeds because there was NO harvest, it becomes virtually impossible to give it a second chance which means this is the fine line between Life and Death

Hunger is also designed into a non-sustainable production system in which costs of inputs are higher than the price of outputs.

The 200000 farmer suicides since 1997 are part of the genocidal design of corporate-driven high-cost agriculture.

or should we say, part of a design to deliberately create debt and hunger within a blooming economy that could’ve signified a great threat to other economies ‘in power’.

4.Blame the

weather and social dysfunctions as the cause of the ‘incidents’

GM officials blamed alcoholism, droughts, suicide as part of ‘rural Indian life’ and ultimately blaming the farmers for their choice to buy their products.

*No further comments on this.

5. Debt doesn’t end with Death

What’s even more tragic is that the Debt left by men committing suicide is passed on to their wives and kids which are then pushed to stop going to school and having a regular life and become part of the lines of beggars along the road with no possibility of ever recovering the land they’ve lost to a planned failed business that left them literally, with nothing.

Indian farmers are losing $25 billion every year to falling prices. While farm prices fall, food prices continue to rise, creating a double burden of hunger for rural communities. This is why half of the hungry people in India and the world are farmers.

The Tata Institute of Social Sciences estimates that 150,000 farmers have killed themselves during the past decade, principally over apprehensions about losing their land over unpaid debt.

 

The Solution is obviously the Equal Money System wherein we can finally establish an Equal Distribution of Resources that will ensure everyone being able to Support themselves to LIVE and only earn more money through  labor that won’t be involved with any type of corporation or policy created, planned and determined to ensure further Debt and consumption is created through planned-inefficiency as Debt cannot exist in a system where resources/goods and services are created, crafted, planned and distributed to serve what’s Best for ALL Life.

HUNGER will NOT BE EXISTENT within the EQUAL LIFE SYSTEM

as it will be a Human Right to have sufficient quality food for ALL – No more Technology-designed-to-fail as GM Foods that are created for the sake of PROFIT and not any actual benefit for Living Conditions.

Be One Vote for World Equality through Equal Money and enable Equal Food Availability for ALL

Deaths by Work Overload in a Profit-Driven World

Posted in Crimes Against Life, Equal Money System, Labor, Reform the Monetary System with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 28, 2011 by marlenlife

Karoshi is the term used for death due to work overload in Japan. Mazda amongst other industries/companies have been held accountable for these type of crimes against life having to pay up to 750 thousand dollars to the family of one of their workers that commit suicide in 2007 due to the stress and depression  he endured which aggravated by the time he had to extend his work schedule – the company was found guilty for not having taken care of the worker’s mental and physical health.

 

Another case karoshi happened in the same country in 2010 where a restaurant franchise had to pay 880 000 dollars to the family of an employee that died due to a heart attack after having an average of 112 EXTRA hours of monthly work –

February 2009: agricultural corporation had to pay almost 1 million dollars for the death of a 33 year old man that commit suicide due to work overload.

These are but a few documented deaths by work overload which isn’t only about ‘working too much’ and having physical repercussions as a result of the strain as physically and mentally demanding situations.

This is linked to the current Capitalist System that ‘puts a gun on everyone’s forehead’ to work under pressure to  The moment a production line is tracked to make the most money every single second means that people working under this type of stress will eventually be NOT living, but merely surviving and ‘hanging on’ to these type of working conditions which is definitely limiting and

it is completely unacceptable to be existing in a world where money is  ‘worth more’ than humans’ living conditions

which are currently being held with a constant noose around their neck with no possibility of changing their living conditions as ALL jobs in this world are existent within the same system that is measured by Profit, by Greed and ultimately by harsh competition that will push the envelope as far as it can just to become a ‘great business’.

 

These are Not really ‘News’ though, have we actually taken a look at how it is that Life is being sold to enslaving jobs and badly paid labor just for the sake of MONEY as Profit? What is wrong with ourselves that have accepted and allowed this to be ‘the way the world works’?

 

Here in México City there is people that embark themselves on a daily basis on a 2 to 3 hour ride just to get to work to earn the minimum wage wherein at the end of the day – after a long and hard working time in a shitty job – have to endure the traffic jam at night to get to their home that is usually located in suburban areas with little or no proper security at all.

These people have to sustain families, kids in school, place food on the table, pay living services and transportation. Not to mention the occasional entertainment required for such a straining living condition.

 

This MUST Stop

it is disheartening to see people’s faces in transportation every single day after a long day at work in life sucking business  and factories that are part of what we’ve become as this entire system  thus, we are saying:

No more!

we have created this in our image and likeness, we have to become the point of solution and that can only be through

Equalizing the living conditions with Equal Money for ALL to Dignify each person’s living condition, to no longer enslave ourselves to a life-consuming system that is NOT regarding Life as a Value that must be given to ALL unconditionally.

 

We are HERE  to place an overall solution – Support yourself to see the common sense required in this world. Re-Educate yourself to see this world in Self Honesty to consider there IS another way things can be done.

Investigate the Equal Money System
