305. Price System in Equal Money Capitalism

Prices will be a numeric value of the perfect equation that embodies the  equal-remuneration  to all involved in the creation of a means to make life possible in our social organism.

Redefining CAPITALISM

Capitalism is an economic system that is based on private ownership of capital goods and the means of production, and the creation of goods and services for profit.[1][2] Elements central to capitalism include capital accumulation, competitive markets, and a price system.[3]

Pricing System

  You can buy anything with a price, the big mistake was putting a price upon life – now we’re all paying the consequences. (pain-in we all are.)

 

 

Problems                                                            

  • Pricing is the mechanism that sustains the fallacy of a system that revolves around makeshift values that generate and equally speculative concept such as ‘debt’ that everyone uses in order to buy or sell means and products, which is our living resources and work force turned into merchandise. This implies that the price we pay for things doesn’t go in an integral way toward the suppliers, but they pay their own debts as well, this means that the money always goes back to the place where it came from: the banking system/ owners of money, it is thus a usurious system and price the quantity representing a relationship of separation in itself.

 

  •  Elitist Tool: Not every single person has access to buy that which they require to live. By fixing prices an entire being’s life is defined according to what he/she can afford, and by setting a price system, the distribution of goods and services are settled, aiming at certain markets that also determine everyone’s lifestyle: you buy cheap products because your income is low, and you buy luxury items/expensive products because you’ve got more than enough money. We have accepted this as ‘how things are,’ accepting such limitation in a normal manner equal to realizing ‘the sky is blue’ and never questioning about it.

 

  • Prices determine the quality of products: if you buy cheap products, the chances are that you will be using/consuming a product that is the spawn of planned obsolescence and built/ elaborated/manufactured using slave labor, which means that t might seem like you got a ‘great deal,’ but never really trace back the process to realize how such product came to be so cheap when compared to others, and bargains always contain a higher level of exploitation, not that t is not existent in ‘expensive items,’ but mass production means mass-workers to be able to handle the demand.
    • On the other hand, people believe that paying more for something means paying for quality, while this has been mostly also abused in order to generate the most profit, since there is no real consideration left when it comes to making the most money.

 

  • Scarcity: this is a great tool used to elevate prices and justify it with the belief that there is not enough to cover the demand. However there have been many examples of how this so-called scarcity is deliberately created to earn the most profit. Sometimes people buy an entire production of let’s say cacao to produce chocolate, they stack it/ hold t/keep it out of the market and create the belief that there is not enough, and as such, the chocolate industry suddenly has no more cacao for its production. Cacao becomes a scarce resource, this then forces the production costs to be elevated and then reflect such speculation on the pricing of chocolate. Now, chocolate is a fancy example, however when this happens with prime-products of first necessity, such as wheat or corn, you get hunger, and that is really a big problem since such scarcity is another ‘rule of the game,’ to speculate even further.  There are various other ways or environmental conditions that may cause this problem, however this is just an example.

 

  • Abundance is for those that can afford it, obviously. Prices don’t matter if you’ve got a lot of money, prices become a bitter number to look at when one can barely make it through the day and each cent counts. This disparity implies that our minimum wages are not in correspondence to cover the basic needs on a daily basis everywhere in the world, on the contrary, we all know that it is impossible to live with 2 dollars a day, yet we’ve kept billions of human beings living with that amount of money, not being able to afford anything to live properly, many opting  to then do slave labor, sex services, selling organs, buying drugs to mitigate hunger and the list goes on, Poverty is thus a direct result of this Pricing system that decides who can Afford life and who Can’t 
  • Price convenience comes at the expense of diminishing fair pay for others, this is as the name says convenient for the buyer but a crime against fair pay for the laborer that sees no diminishment in their working hours.

 

  • Price is set up by ‘market forces’ in global financial systems that fluctuate and vary according to an unsettled behavior that maintains everyone within a constant level of uncertainty about the cost of things based on these speculative forces that obviously, only benefit a few that make the rules in the first place.

 

Inflation is the general increase in prices on a nationwide scale — and can only be caused by an agency that has the power to act on a national scale.

That agency is the government. Inflation is the increase in prices caused by the government ‘inflating’ the money supply with fiat dollars.

 

Doesn’t capitalism cause the inflation of prices?

No. Under Capitalism, the prices of particular goods can “fluctuate” over time, but the general price level of most goods decrease over time due to capitalism’s limitless progress.

source: capitalism.or/inflation

 

  • Price inflation without Wage inflation as the source of polarization. Prices then become the most basic way to restrict/ limit the ability to buy what is required by the majority to live.

 

 

  Solutions                                                                   

  • The prices we will pay will actually embody a sound distribution of money  for people’s work and taxes in order to maintain the system with political intervention as the necessary regulation to monitor proper functionality and stop any form of speculation or fluctuation without cause. This means that the final price will be the amount that will be equally remunerated to people as their wage, which is what Equal Profit Share implies.

 

  • Since there is no actual ownership of the resources, the pricing system will not imply ‘paying for the resources,’ but simply for the work that will imply paying for the people that will take care of maintaining or restoring the balance and sustainability necessary within a certain environmental location from where the raw materials are taken. This implies that the price will not reflect paying for any point of assumed ownership upon the Earth’s resources, but instead t will go directly to support people doing the actual work.

 

  • Pricing system will hold the mathematical equations of equal support to all bodies participating in a certain organism.  This means that a number won’t subsume the Value of Life, but instead it means the Value of the work that enables a fair use, transformation and consumption of the necessary resources to live. Markets will reflect then the stability of such equal distribution of profit/support/gain to all bodies equally.

 

  • Prices entail Equal-Share which means that we can all have the certainty that the amount that we are paying for our goods and services is the necessary to equally support everyone involved in the extraction/ production/ manufacturing/ engineering/ distribution processes, along with any other administrative and corporate activity that will be implied as part of the social responsibility endowed to everyone involved in production and industry sectors.
Supply and Demand

Pricing will not resemble a free market paradigm, so the interaction between supply and demand as it exists now will not determine anything.

Supply will be according to your demand, that means your demand will not be based on price, your demand will be based on supplying yourself with a lifestyle that is worth living – so the demand will change.
Because the demand will no longer be controlled by price, it will now more be controlled by the fact that you want to live an excellent lifestyle, that you want to change products – it is going to change what goods and services will be available.
You’re not going to buy ‘inferior products’ that you buy because it’s cheap and made in China – but it’s not what you would have bought if you had more money.

Day 173: Supply, Demand, Business and Scarcity in Equal Money Capitalism
http://economistjourneytolife.blogspot.com/2013/01/day-173-supply-demand-business-and.html

 

 

Scarcity and Pricing
There’s not going to be pricing control in terms of scarce resources, things are going to be available or they are not. It is controlled by its availability. If certain resources become unavailable, which is going to affect the products that are going to be available – then we will just have to take that into consideration. So for instance, if there is not enough fish in the sea, we will simply have to withhold from catching fish — the supply / option of fish disappears off the menu until the fish supply is re-established.

 

  • A Price will no longer be a number to be feared,  but a compensation number that will signify the value in return for one’s work or contribution/ creation. Price will contain enough to pay everyone an equal fair share which will create a sustainable satisfied and prosperous living condition, since people will be doing what they want to contribute with, while being equally supported as an equal participant.

 

 

Rewards                                                                    

  • Equal support leads to understanding how we can only thrive as a team and in consideration of mutual support, which strengthens our relationships at a community level.

 

  • No more will a price feel like we’re ‘Selling out’ but will instead be an expression of the work invested upon such goods/ services and its integral reimbursement to everyone that helped within the production/ distribution/engineering process.

 

  • Giving and receiving will be regulated by the price in itself, this will ensure that compensation, gratitude and remuneration is recognized and acknowledged by everyone as a collective agreement upon which our system will be based on: Constitutional Equality.

 

  • A guaranteed ability to buy means no more fearing scarcity, uncertainty, loss, poverty and misery – the power of acquisition will be giving and received as an organic mechanism based on giving and receiving in Equality.

 

  • No more stuff that breaks, all products made with the best quality

 

  • No more competition to ‘make the most money’ since all corporations will stop competing against each other – equal profit equals equal life support.

288. Goods and Equal Money Capitalism

 

Continuing from:

For context on redefining capitalism, read: Day 180: The Word ‘Capitalism’ in ‘Equal Money Capitalism Redefined

 

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.”
Read more: http://www.businessdictionary.com/definition/goods.html#ixzz2JcHGO32h

 

 

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.

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,

Children are Here as Life

I had a cool meeting with some family-friends from the states that arrived today and beyond talking to the mother and daughter, I enjoyed talking with the son of ‘the daughter’ who is a 7 year old boy that people simply deem as a ‘menace’ kid – I see whenever I am in ‘grown ups’ reunions like that, If I see kids, I’ll go and just hang around with them, I definitely enjoy kids whom I can speak to, specially around that age 7-10-12 – I did the same in that wedding in germany, lol trying to catch some stuff in german and then in english and even if the communication as such within words wasn’t coming completely ‘through’ I enjoyed being with them.

Anyways, so I simply went upstairs at my aunt’s house to see what the kids were doing, as usual – a tv was on disney channel, my cousin that is around 14 years old plugged to her ipod or whatever it was, lol – and the ‘son’, the 7 year old kid ‘K’ was watching tv along with my other two cousins, 6 and 12 years old – I grabbed a small guitar they were messing around with and started playing some notes, I noticed that K immediately stopped looking at the tv screen and started following the rythym with his hands on the armchair, and he was just immediately ‘tuned in’ to the rythym and so I increased the speed and he increased his ‘armchair drumming’ and I was simply playing the same notes over and over and he just was into it, lol – so cool until the ultimate rush of notes and finally stopping the sound – then I started talking to him, getting the usual ‘what are your hobbies’ or ‘what music do you like’ – lol and after getting thumbs down for people like justin bieber and lady gaga amongst others lolol, these kids – he started talking on how he’d found really disgusting how people would show themselves puking a lot of meals on tv so people would find that ‘funny’ –  he started communicating on similar points that he’d seen on tv shows how people do harm to themselves to entertain another and how people would find that funny – It was very interesting to see that he was able to eloquently express himself and stand within a complete basic common sense point in relation to ‘what is best for all’ within seeing this self-inflicted harm portrayed on shows as ‘entertainment’ or ‘funny’-things that people are supossed to laugh or like – he was dead serious he didn’t like that at all –  And so I simply started communicating, wow, it is the first time in a long time I am able to communicate this easily with someone – I would simply share the common sense perspective on things and he would share other experiences where he’d seen ‘people littering on the earth’, he even spoke on how people get paid to pick up other’s trash (meaning cleanign the streets from littering) and how people that litter on the streets only care about themselves – and don’t care about others –

He kept explaining how he’d seen some animal abuse images on a dog and how the person that inflicted harm on the dog should be punished to jail for ‘infinity’ because he harmed another being that is life – yes I have to say I thoughoughly enjoyed the views K had upon what he’d seen on tv, what he’d seen others do within his life – an example is seeing how one cheated to win a game and how that was Not Fair at all because they were already showing themselves as ‘wanting to win’ and thus the rest of the people playing the game had no-chance anymore to ‘win’ because, he had already cheated to win for himself, because he only cared about himself!

I mean, really cool just look at all the concepts that he pointed out in common sense in a less than half an hour intense exchange of views where we could Easily agree upon what’s best for all! I also saw how by exprsesing myself with him with basic common sense, he was able to immediately grasp it – the moment I mentioned ‘that’s why we are supporting an Equal Money System’ so that everyone can have a fair life to live here on Earth – he immediately agreed that it was ‘fair’ because we all live here on Earth – lol I even played with ‘Earth’ and ‘BEarth’ to see how life is born in the physical, earth! I wanted to sing ‘A cup is just a cup’ – lol I could only get the first lines ‘A cup is just a cup, it’s made from the Earth’ – lol this actually I just began singing to him after meeting him, to which he started questioning how that was possible? a cup made from the earth? eh? lol! and so I explained and he immediately got it – pff, these kids got dual core processors, they simply see it when having the basic foundation to see where abuse exists, what personal interest is, what harm is, what killing another is, what death is, what ‘pricdes’ are (which is how he called a ‘salary’ or ‘wage’ for a person’s job), animal life, respecting life, etc

A great point is that he said – I dislike cheaters, (I explained what greed implies in wanting to win the game all the time and thus being dishonest in cheating to make their ‘winning’ certain to which he added that it thus limits the others to have any chance to ‘win the game’ because it’s already been ‘fixed’ fascinating) – he continued on the equal money point: people that are working for a job to live should get money and people that don’t care about themselves and that don’t care about anyone else because if they don’t care about themselves = they won’t care about anything or anyone else, shouldn’t get money. As simple as that!! just how it should be.  He’s completely aware of how people are paid by others that are in a master’s position of having a lot of money and that the ability to do so – meaning having people ‘beneath’ them – make them even richer.

Yes, a 7 year old kid – fascinating – I could speak words and he would immediately ‘grasp’ it to his understanding in very simple terms and then come up with his own experiences on the specific topic – I mean while he was explaining all of this things he was just sitting on a basketball ‘ball’ and moving a bit around until he finally sat in the couch completely into the conversation – he was simply expressing himself with what he’d seen and how we have to ‘not litter on the streets’ and not beign able to understand what a person has to ‘be’ or ‘think like’ to say ‘I will litter on the earth’ and so then someone else having to do them for themselves – He even explained how he cleans his room and helps his mom to do so.

I would’ve probably spent more time talking to him, lol it was funny that I said ‘okay, I have to go now’ he simply followed me downstairs and kept explaining the points and then up again until he finished explaining the points he wanted to address with regards to this kid complaining about not winning a game after he’d seen him cheating to actually win but then not doing so and thus complaining about something that he’d created for himself wherein he obviously saw that the kid ‘revealed’ the ‘nature’ of himself as a cheater and already not allowing others to have the opportunity to win not even by ‘stroke of luck’ – fascinating.

So, would be cool if the communication opens up again, he’s a really cool kid that exprsses himself perfectly well and has got more than the basic common sense we would require in any given human being to see what is best for all as life.

I enjoyed this  point thoroughy and pff, it is cool to encounter kids like this really – I experienced the same common-sensical way of living from my aunt’s son in germany who is the same age as K and really just talking with them about these everyday events they see in their lives, with their friends or classmates or whatever goes around in their environment and being able to clearly see ‘what’s best for all’ and just being kids that express themselves, that are considered playful yet when establishing communication with them, it’s fascinating to see how they think, how they live what they speak of – I mean they can only speak from experience, they can’t speak of any other given thing, lol another basic point on communicating as self- kids get it faster than ‘adults’ of course.

Enjoyable – very cool, let’s see what opens up in another moment.

With regards to my experience and everything on the past two days, I see the points, I can see that I will have to deal with this whenever the points emerge again and yes, it is my ‘testing’ the standing of self honesty in my world, I was just reminded by this within the uploading of the third part of my resonance interview

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N9rp5GfZD4c

it is great support for everyone as equals –

So, kids as the future – education, development of vocabulary, practical reference points within their reality – living as an example as a father/mother – fascinating, talking with this kid is ‘refreshing’ from all the bullshit going around in the internet with adutts fighting against each other – if the world could only exist with kids like him, the laws would be on not exceeding sugar ingestion or hours in front of tv lol – just ‘dreaming’ on a bit here but, I can see that it is defintely worthwhile to do this for kids, to pave the way for kids like him – it makes complete common sense –
