Deep Green financing: Community Currency: a walking tour

Recent SF supervisorial candidate Leon Phat leads a walking tour through San Francisco's financial district that puts the buzz on community currency fertility. What if community revenue was derived from the annual value community pays to occupy a particular place? And what if currency was issued at par with the value of goods and services a community created?

Deep Green financing holds that the market value of nature--the energy people will exert to live in a particular place--analogous to the energy plants and animals will exert to live in a particular habitat, is the proper source of community revenue. And the corollary is that the market value of goods and services is the proper standard for the money supply.

Leon Phat's walk will shake up your embedded property rights beliefs, shake down your rent-seeking inclinations, and shake a pound off your bod.
