    Money is a social construct where our faith in its value keeps the global economy humming as well as keep the wealthy in power. Those wealthy have a goal to keep that faith strong within the minds of the masses as a means to maintain their place in society. So, imagine if that faith waned, what would the wealthy do to secure their wealth if it is no longer valued?

    Cooperative enterprise can be a good way to retain wealth and value within our own communities. It would be a stealthy way to diminish the power and control of the wealthy from the extreme concentration we see today.
