The rise of FinTech

9/20/2021
We trace the progression of our monetary system in response to our rapidly transforming technology systems.

A brief history of money and central banks

9/19/2021
As western societies transitioned from primarily agrarian to industrial cultures, new financial systems were deemed necessary to manage financial power sharing among the ruling class. The US Federal Reserve central bank and other central banks can best be understood as a 100 year old approach to 100 year old problems.

Money, Hard Power, and Soft Power

9/19/2021
Money is a tokenization of various aspects of human relationships. One of the main tokenizations is the human drive for power. In this podcast, we consider two main forms of human power, "hard power" which is brute force, and "soft power" which is cultural alignment growing from individual self-determination and self-interest.

Compressing the vegan future timeline

9/5/2021
The outdated capitalization methods resulting from the Securities Act of 1933 have thwarted the growth of all startups by forcing them to raise capital in secret via private investment rounds. Now that founders have the option to raise startup capital publicly, vegan companies can get double duty from their capital raising efforts, building brand awareness in a far more compressed timeframe than what is possible via the highly linear, sequential capitalization methods that have been used for...

Foundation - The Liquidity Tidal Wave

9/5/2021
"Liquidity" is the ability to easily convert an asset into cash. The Securities Act 1933 turned equity in startups from a highly liquid asset into a highly illiquid asset. With new laws, rules, and regulations starting in 2012, liquidity in startup equity is becoming increasingly liquid. It is imperative that vegan investors understand this enormous change in the playing field so that we use today's more progressive finance laws to maximize vegan outcomes.

Transforming the Values Economy

The majority of the monetized economies are values-based economies, not survival-based economies.
