Even if the IC operated on a 100% barter economy internally, (and barring collapse, squatting,

or life on the high seas) some money will be required to interface with the agricultural state.

[this is all quite roughly outlined at the moment]


Reduction of the money demanded is preferable to increasing the money supply in most

scenarios. Very few methods of collecting wages are exempt from classification as wage



Options for money generation

●Selling the fruits of the land

●Selling the fruits of labor by adding value to natural resources

●Services provided to the public from within the IC enclave.

●Services provided to the public external to the IC.

●Goods delivered remotely

●Service provided remotely (e.g., internet).

●Information delivered remotely


Of these options, the “services provided remotely” category offers several advantages. Since

one principle of paleo life is a semi-nomadic existence, the ability to disconnect geography

from income is almost a requirement. The non-remote options require establishment or

maintenance of a customer base to some degree. The extent to which this is true is

debatable, but higher profit margins tend to come through non-tangible value rather than

commodified goods and services.


Goods delivered remotely provide many advantages, but require depletion of natural

resources (i.e. actual food and habitat).


Even in the instance of surplus, distribution of goods externally represents an open loop in

the system.


One service (that applies locally and remotely) that would be valuable to provide is anything

informational/educational. With the growth of the “paleo” community, we know that the

message is attractive to a large segment of the population. It certainly hasn’t been

disseminated to the extent that it’s possible.


Selling information over the internet allows significant leverage of time, and can yield

significant returns.
