¤ Robert Searle ¤ 28 July 2013
Essentially, Transfinancial Economics model (TFE) claims that new largely monitored non-repayable money could be created electronically by special transparent, and credible funding mechanisms, or Facilitation Banks (and/or by governments to some extent).

It is the first nation-wide employment scheme that guarantees employment legally to India’s rural population. Naturally, it has (...) read more

Basic Food Income: Option or Obligation?
¤ Rolf Künnemann ¤ January 2005
Basic food income is a universal payment by the state unconditionally to each member of society with an amount sufficient to cover elementary food needs. It is not a level of income but a state program, by definition. Minimum income describes a certain level of income, but may not be sufficient to provide access to food. Basic food income is an innovative idea. State programs can introduce "smart forms" of targeting. Indeed, how should the human right to food be guaranteed to households (...) read more
