Taxi

​Preferred Shares are issued in denominations that are multiples of each other. Preferred Shares are used in the way currency is used in conventional markets. Riders pay their fare using the Preferred Share as a medium of exchange or in simple language, a type of money. 

Taxi Ecumenic

The following scenario describes a taxi service set up as an Ecumenic.

​Several cars are sold to the Ecumenic by the team members or Ecumens. These vehicles represent assets. The Ecumenic swaps Preferred Shares or equity in the Taxi Ecumenic for the vehicles. The owner of a vehicle valued at $6,000.00 would receive 6000 Preferred Shares each with a cash value of $1.00.

​Preferred Shares are issued in denominations that are multiples of each other. Preferred Shares are used in the way currency is used in conventional markets. Riders pay their fare using the Preferred Share as a medium of exchange or in simple language, a type of money. 

​Profits are shared between members equally or reinvested. Members own the equity represented by the Ecumenic. It pays the Ecumenic to hire all members and to find jobs for all members as it is through the contribution of the members that the Ecumenic adds value.

​All members wish to spend Preferred Shares as they do not receive interest and they are only valuable as a medium of ecumenic within the Ecumenic. Members look for ways to spend Preferred Shares (PS) and so this increases the potential for jobs to be created. As more people join more capabilities emerge and so unique Ecumenic Markets can be established providing different goods and services.

​Ecumenics create specialization spontaneously. Five persons who joined a taxi service may be plumbers and so they will come together to provide plumbing services as an Ecumenic. Thus, Ecumenic Markets grow and diversify spontaneously as members acquire more diverse specializations.

​Even as the members of one Ecumenic share the benefits of the Ecumenic Market several Ecumenics form a higher organizational level. The chairperson of each lower Ecumenic Market serves as a member of the higher level Ecumenic. This is part of the macroeconomic theory of Ecumenics.

​Ecumenics, is an economic philosophy comparable to capitalism and communism but based on Ecumenical ownership instead of individuals or the state. The provisio being that capitalism and communism and all the other political and economic ideas of man ultimately contribute to the building up of Babylon. Babylon is simply a concept denoting an unbiblical and non-scientific structure.

Ecumenical ownership is a non-state mandated form of ownership. That is Ecumenical ownership is equivalent to personal ownership but applied to the commercial sector. It does not require the existence of the state to be administrated.
