Many groups might have interest in the LEDDA framework. Consider that once a LEDDA is established, even in a modest size city, it's Crowd-Based Financial System (CBFS, see glossary for this and other terms) could potentially fund local nonprofit and for-profit organizations at a massive level. In a published simulation model of an idealized LEDDA in a US county of only 10,000 adults, annual CBFS funding was in the billions of tokens plus dollars (T&D). Moreover, a LEDDA empowers a community to focus on and solve problems that matter using a new form of deep democracy.
New, secure funding could exist for research projects in a wide variety of fields related to wellbeing and social choice system optimality.
The opportunity is to achieve transformative public benefit with a relatively small social investment.
Tax revenues to local (and other) governments could rise dramatically. In the published simulation model, tax revenues tripled.
LEDDA members could and likely would spend CBFS funds on public education (at all levels and grades).
The CBFS funds local farms and businesses with subsidies and interest-free loans. Further, members patronize local businesses to build a strong local circulation of currency.
Members use the CBFS to fund the types of jobs that they feel are meaningful and useful. Members create the kind of economy and jobs that they want.
Every family that joins a LEDDA sees an income gain. In the published simulation model, mean family income more than doubled.
A LEDDA exists to elevate collective wellbeing. Better public health, lower crime and pollution, and other gains help all people, members or not.
LEDDA members could and likely would spend CBFS funds on public health and disease prevention programs. Higher incomes can also mean better access to health care.
A LEDDA can and likely would fund jobs in environmental protection and restoration, including sustainable agriculture.
The CBFS funds local nonprofits with subsidies and interest-free loans. In one simulation, the nonprofit sector grew to employ about half of the local workforce.
A LEDDA eventually achieves a high and equal income for all members. Moreover, it funds meaningful jobs of the membership's choosing.
A LEDDA exists to elevate collective wellbeing; it works toward a just, peaceful, caring, and cooperative society.
A LEDDA generates intellectual property and shares it via a type of IP pool or commons.
Public banks and credit unions are natural partners to help handle the potential billions in annual currency that could flow though a CBFS.
