Questions for Howard Rheingold

Filed under: Questions — captainchunk @ 8:08 pm

LETS seems to be a very optimistic idea. At some point, I think people don’t want to deal with multiple systems of currency much in the same way that many people do not like to register with 15 different websites to talk to their friends. With the amount of globalization that has already taken place, how can LETS be an efficient, streamlined system?

To me, LETS relies on trust. If the majority of people trusted others, wouldn’t a system like this already see widespread use despite not having technology that makes it easy to use the system?

I am not sure that seeing which politicians buy and sell stock will make a big difference. If there really are shady dealing a foot, wouldn’t the politicians just use another method to do their dealings?
