A Complete Economic System, Resilient Against Crises

Implements the time-tested, but forgotten principles of Classical Economics, from Socrates to Adam Smith, instead of Neoclassical Economics from Marshall to Keynes

No Money? No Problem!

Pantry allows points-transactions for donations, exchange (barter), and investments. This circulates value whatever the economic situation even during stagflation or financial crisis (when banks won’t let you withdraw money in order to prevent bank runs), or when your customer delays his money payments.

Crisis-Ready

The points can be for-profit or non-profit, letting the normal economy work even during crises. The system can even work offline. In theory, it can even work without electricity or even pen and paper, as seen in the Inca who used strings to record the points

Connects to the Money System

The closed points-system connects to money-system through ‘pantries’ which sell the goods and services for money to the public (open system). This will allow people to switch between points (as ‘pointization’) for stability and safety, and money (as ‘monetization’) for growth and expansion – true economic freedom!

Locations

We’ll deploy an app for your city once the waitlist for that city gets filled.

The Points Economy

Unlike money which is a single kind of store of value, points take various forms for easier points-taxation, points-accounting and analytics. All of these use the time-factor which is also essential for a high EQ or emotional quotient, as opposed to the money system which requires a high IQ and selfish-interest

Loyalty Points

These are points given by businesses to their customers to incentivize repeat purchases. This is used to ’train’ people in the use of points

Social Points

These are points used for donations and relief. We use this primarily to incentivize food rescue and plastic waste collection to realize a moneyless circular economy

Trade Points

These are points for barter transactions. Unlike social points which do not seek something in return, trade points do. This is the foundation of Points-banking

Investment Points

These are trade points designed to spur investments when money is lacking. This requires the other point-types to be working beforehand.

Insurance Points

These are trade points for long term claim, upon old age. We implement this as social insurance in case money-based insurance becomes oppressive

Energy Points

These are trade points for electricity, usually from biomass sources. This incentivizes waste segregation and is part of the circular economy

Money Points

These are trade points paid in money to reduce existing trade points balance

Made for the Crisis Years

The false assumptions by Neoclassical Economics naturally create immense wealth for the self at the expense of recurring crises for society. We started building Pantrypoints in 2015 for the long crisis which we predicted to start in 2019 caused by Keynesian ’liquidity preference’ and Marginalist ‘profit maximization’

Originally Implemented by the Inca

The Inca made a large scale moneyless system that used hyperlocal warehouses to store resources, and strings to record data. The Spanish destroyed it and replaced it with the current crisis-prone money-based system.

Steady Progress

Unlike the money system that has booms and busts, Pantry has steady growth despite crises

I very much like this work:A Research Proposal For The Formalization Of The Science Of Pantrynomics And The Establishment Of A Point-Based Economic System

I believe it is developing into a worthwhile project
