The threads about transition finance and other economic issues  
reminded me of a really interesting essay I read a while back.  The  
idea of money based on 'demurrage' is particularly interesting.  A  
system in which 'money' loses value if it concentrates and does  
circulate would certainly be problematic, but does more closely  
reflect the natural systems of constant nutrient cycling, decay,  
renewal, etc.
