What would you Replace Money With?
 
Simple question, real answers please this is on topic discussion.

I hear it and see it all of the time, the loathing of money, but what could replace it?

Sorry I don't have an idea for a replacement, because i think that its not money that is the problem. The problem is Usury.

It doesn't matter what you use as a currency, if people can lend you a dollar / bottlecap / berry or whatever you want to use, and legally expect you to pay back more than you borrowed, it will always bring out the worst in people, and make people who need it most, suffer most.

So you don't believe in credit?

Some type of object made of metal. Like a small circle shaped metal fragment. But with a number engraved on it, to indicate the metal objects worth.

Earned respect and due recognition.

That is all.

Wampum.

Or food.

Water depending on the conditions.

Labor of some sort.

Haven't really seen people talk about replacing the currency system. Seen people mention different tweaks to it, such as how it's value is derived (backed by gold) or which currency should be the reserve currency. The only true replacements for the currency system would be either to back peddle to a pure barter system or consider private ownership null and void, all known resources would have to belong and be put to use for the benefit of everyone. Therefore there wouldn't be a need for individuals to engage in trade.

Beef- what good is money or gold? Can't eat it- too soft for protection and too scarce for building anything constructive...now beef...You can eat it or wear it for protection...Beef is actually the worlds richest commodity- You can eat the meat- milk it, wear the hide (or build a structure with it) the hoofs can be used for multiple things- plentiful, self propagating, gentle- The perfect species.
