Great job! The story needs to spread far and wide as proof that communities anywhere can pull ourselves out of economic injustice and inequality by a very simple innovation.

Another thing I would add to the list is a way to tie money creation to Earth's carrying capacity. E.g., if you use the money to cut down trees, then even if that produces more goods and jobs, it should have the effect of limiting future economic growth. Otherwise, the committee will still be under pressure to keep an indefinitely growing economy going through indefinitely incremental money creation, as they showed in the chart in this video.

Because of inequality and the economic pain suffered by so many, public discussion on finance and banking reform naturally focuses on address these two issues. But we must not lose sight of the bigger picture or we will just be advocating for another form of un-sustainable development -- one that is even harder to reform because the 99% are now vested in its continuity.
