Positive Markets

Positive Markets are created by the positive ownership model. Positive ownership produces a Positive market. Positive markets transform high energy industrial operations into the low energy, high information model used by Knowledge Networks.

The public sector is transformed by transferring assets from the public sector to the private. Assuming jurisdictional authority over physical assets enables Exchanges to provide social goods and wean the world off the government teat.

​Exchanges are composed of between 3 and 15 persons. An Exchange is an economic unit or small group of persons wishing to exercise Positive ownership and Positive democracy. Any product or service provided by the free market or public sector can be provided through a Positive Exchange. Public goods such as policing and health care and education can be produced with the same facility as conventional goods and services.

​Exchanges can preferentially be registered as a charitable not-for-profit corporation. It may facilitate operations, for the time-being if operations are legitimized in the eyes of the state.

Every member of the Exchange owns one voting share. Common Shares allow the member to vote in elections and on policy initiatives and also to a share of the assets of the organization were it sold. However, Exchanges are never sold or liquidated. Exchanges can be transformed in terms of their economic purpose, but Exchanges never become non-viable.

​Exchanges also issue Preferred Shares as a form of voucher-based currency. Preferred Shares represent the equity of the corporation and are issued based on the accumulated assets of the organization.

Positive Exchanges are as varied as the goods and services people need. Exchanges are set up and expand using Positive democracy and Positive funding.
